After quitting Diamond’s record label WCB in July 2019, fans of Rich Mavoko expected to hear more from him but the singer went MIA.
Mavoko only released a few projects before disappearing leaving many of his fans with questions.
Turns out, the singer went broke after paying a fine for breach of contract when he left WCB.
Mavoko’s break up with WCB was so messy that the Tanzanian government through its Art regulatory body BASATA had to mediate the situation.
Speaking after leaving the stable unannounced, Rich Mavoko said he didn’t see a future with the label. He also said he doesn’t owe anyone an apology because he did nothing wrong.
“When I got there, I never found anyone that was successful than the one that is the owner of the label. What am I apologizing for? What wrong did I do? I have no problem with anyone at WCB. My contract never ended, though there are things that went contrary to what I wanted. I stayed for a long time with songs that I never got a chance to release. There is a time my mum even called them to ask about my songs. I didn’t see a future with them anymore” he said at the time.
Sources now claim that WCB sucked the singer dry. Mavoko allegedly had to sell his land, cars, house and even his mother’s land to settle the debt owed to WCB.
Sources further revealed that he does not own the rights to the song produced at WCB and that the label took possession of his Youtube channel.
Despite the fact that the singer has remained silent, his longtime friend Harmonize on Wednesday came out to ask critics to stop celebrating Mavoko’s disappearance from the music scene.
According to the stories circulating on social media; Rich Mavoko was not lucky enough as he failed to raise the money needed by Wasafi records
