Published

on

The face-off between management of Kennis Music and singer, Oluwajuwonlo James popularly known as Jaywon, is set to take a new dimension as recent developments reveal the crisis might linger longer than anyone can imagine.
Jaywon, according to reports, has written to Kennis Music management through his lawyer to terminate his contract with the label.
A source who spoke to us said “Iledare Oluwajuwonlo James aka Jaywon has written a letter via his lawyer requesting for his contract with Kennis Music to be terminated.”
The source further disclosed “Jaywon wrote, in the same letter, his readiness and willingness to pay off all costs therein accordingly.”
However, Kennis Music has urged the Independent Broadcasters Association of Nigeria members and all broadcasters on all platforms to un-list the works either single performances or and collaborations of Jaywon from their respective rotational play lists until the singer’s request to buy over his contract is fully completed to avoid litigation.
Recent reports also have it that the hoax about the relationship between Jaywon and Benue State budding singer Imelda J was a publicity stunt.
A press statement announcing the relationship between the two was accompanied with pictures of Jaywon in intimate positions with Imelda. We have confirmed that the press release was from Imelda J’s management team to create buzz for her upcoming song which features Jaywon.
The press release had also claimed that Jaywon bought a Chrysler automobile for the female singer as a Christmas gift.
‘Jaywon, who is more keen to settle down, has proved his readiness by spoiling the singer with a Chrysler automobile as a Christmas gift and recorded a single with her and also paid for the video,’ the press statement read.
A source has, however, revealed that the car was bought by Imelda J herself back in November 2013.
‘She bought the car on her birthday in November last year; she bought the car for N3 million. That same day she received a gold wristwatch worth $1,000 from one of her maternal aunt,’ the source revealed.
Imelda J is a Lagos based and Benue State born singer who made little wave with her single ‘Bum Bum’. She hails from Ogbadibo Local Government of Benue State. According to sources, she is rumoured to be dating one of the political heavy weights in Benue State which give her many contacts and high level clearances.
‘She is a regular visitor at the Benue State Government House. She has top level contacts in the state. When she did her album launch last year in Markudi, the Governor of the state Gabriel Suswam was already sitting at the Isa Aminu Kotango Theater, the venue of the album launch a few hours before the event started. That will tell you how close she is to the big boys in Benue State,’ the source further revealed.
Jaywon’s manager also confirmed that his client is not in a relationship with the Benue State born singer.
‘Jaywon and Imelda J just collaborated on a song, they are not dating,’ Shola Ijanusi confirmed.
