He explained, “What occurred was that Tonye Akindele, who at the time ran a capital advising firm, was introduced to. Me by Shayman. In order to invest in firms, they search for them. They employ individuals to fund those portfolios.
He claims that the advising company took money from some investors while lying to them about how the money was. Being invested in his music, despite the fact that he was not receiving any money.
So they sought me for a partnership, Eldee stated. And I gave in. However, I was unaware that Tonye Akindele and his partner were the ones funding the record company, as the label was not receiving any cash. My music was still being supported.
