Summary: Chocolate City allegedly have an injunction against Brymo which prevents him from performing, recording or distributing his material; most recently his 3rd studio album which was just released. Pretty much Brymo legally can’t make any money from music. Chocolate City have not officially confirmed this, and Brymo has come out to say it’s not true.
However Brymo has taken to twitter to takes shots at the label earlier this week, and today his latest rant calls out Audu Maikori, the Chocolate City Boss and says Audu is threatening people trying to work with him.
Check out the tweets
Audu Maikori has been calling and threatening everyone who wants to work with me, the injustice will not cease..

Father would tell me stories about the injustice that’s eating this land, I guess it’s my turn for first hand experience.. — Olawale Ashimi (@BrymOlawale) October 25, 2013
There hasn’t been any official word from Audu, and yo can bet that his sentiments wont be displayed on twitter, however a label mate and exec, MI Abaga made a comment about it when questioned on the issue from someone on twitter
@BabaOloriokoBB if u believe that.. Then u r misled. Contracts must be honored. Fin.

And chances are, MI wont say much else on the issue.
As of right now, it seems that there obviously some sorting out that needs to happen, and maybe a speed up of the legal process, but it certainly looks like this needs to go off the media circuit and be resolved in court.
How do you think this well be resolved? Who’s at fault here? Brymo for walking out on the contract? or Chocolate City?
