Music producer, Shizzi cancels his publishing contract with Sony Music

The music producer had taken to his instagram page on Tuesday, April 26, 2022, where he accused Ogbeni of keeping him in an “archaic MDRC deal” with Sony Music Publishing for six years.

Oluwaseyi Akereleaka Shizzi, claimed he was ill-advised to sign the contract because Ogbeni never gave him the freedom to choose his own lawyer to properly review the terms of the contract in 2016.

“At the end of last year, SonyATV said they were only going to let me go if they agreed to the termination terms,” he said on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, on Friday, April 29, 2022, the music producer provided an update on his Instagram page stating that the controversial contract has officially ended.

“I am extremely blessed and grateful to have achieved my goal and moving on to the next stage of my career,” he wrote. “I’m happy to announce that my contract is officially OVER!!!”

Shizzi also used the post to thank Sony Publishing for the integrity they showed throughout the process.

“I want to thank my team for representing me over the years in the best possible way along this journey. I couldn’t do this without my family, my wife! I want to thank everyone else for their support and good wishes.

“Never stop believing in the true worth of yourself and never let ANYBODY take charge of your destiny, it’s a gift from God and I’m just getting started.” he wrote.

Shizzi has been credited for producing numerous records for Nigerian artists including Assistant“I love my baby” and davido‘Skelewu’ and ‘Gobe’ among others.
