Surprise Split! No More P-Square & May D….Artiste is No Longer Signed to Square Records



Major moves in the Nigerian music industry today as Square Records and Northside Entertainment CEO Jude “Engees” Okoye announced via the label’s publicist Bayo Adetu that May D is no longer signed to the label.

Read the official statement below.

Official Statement

I,JUDE ‘ENGEES’ OKOYE of Square Records Limited and Northside Entertainment Limited hereby announces to the general public that Mr. Akinmayokun Awodumila, otherwise known as MAY D is no longer an artiste under the aforementioned outfits due to irreconcilable differences.
We at Northside and Square records wish him all the best in his career and life.

This is really sad! May-D’s career has soared since he joined Square Records. There is no word on the details of the split.

    How is this sad at all? For all we know, he may not have been signed in the first place. The alliance might have been a cooperated effort for both parties to help garner hype and attention for May-D. Either way, we now recognize him, he makes good music, and that’s all that counts, the real goal has been achieved. There is no sad story here.

    Things happen, there’s a time to laugh, a time to cry, a time to make alliances, a time to quarrel, a time to sow, a time to harvest , a time to work and a time to rest. MAY D should find a way to apologise b’cos no other record label would like to bring in someone whose presence at his former label bred some form of controversy . Square records and Northside Entertainment are not in for trouble but to make money and do business.So whosoever or whatsoever threatens their coporate existence will be shown the way out. MAY D, here’s a word for you, go and apologise, and To Jude, Its too early to start breeding wahala ooo!

    May D’s duration with them was quite short. We wish him all the best. Someone said he leaked Alingo? Oh well. At least it’s not that the Twins were braking up. Now that would have been something.

      August 21, 2012 at 10:04 am

      I agree, Thank God the twins are not splitting up. But Im sure May D will make it, with or without their help, hes an awesome artist

    I have always expected this actually, I don’t see the twins as people dat are accomodating financially….anyway, Goodluck to mayD and Psquare

  15. D great

    August 21, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I thank God it is not the twins. I wish may D well in all his endeavours.

    If you are surprised by this then something is wrong. P Square has an antecedent of using people without giving credit, they are selfish and self centred. This is a group that used Waje on “Do me” single without any reference to the poor lady until she voiced out. She was not even featured in the video and no mention was made of her contributions even on the album. They claim Engees shoots their video but Engees has never shot videos for anyone else like Clarence Peters, Patrick Elis, Akin Alabi etc in the industry apart from P Square. How are we sure someone’s effort is not being usurped by Engees?. Since they started they have never helped anyone successfully instead they use people without giving them credit or kudos. Its unfortunate they have used May D again but I know without P Square, May D will succeed. He needs a good record label that recognises talent and not charlatans like P Square. Good riddance.

      Truthbetold your comment is out of sentiments. Psquare never beg jobless man like you to be their fan, they have millions of good fans worldwide. If you are not getting paid to hate psquare, then stop working for free. Psquare work so hard for their money.

      Just hearing this split now lol (very late I know). After reading this comment thou I had to comment. See beef oh! Truthbetold are you inside Psquare’s house watching everything going on? Ahahn! most people here are blaming psquare, they don’t even know the story. People don’t even remember that its this same Psquare that took MayD, helping him to the level of fame that he has accomplished.

    If elleven45 is right, and he actually leaked their song, then he deserves it. If not, then this is just a bump in the road, which is natural. They say the darkest hour the the one before dawn. It is well.

    In every business partnership TRUST is the binding force. Thus, if actually he leaked their song, then Psquare is justified in their action. MayD had a bright future in Square records. Now he’s back to the very stages he has passed. Starting afresh.

    August 21, 2012 at 3:07 pm

    They do things haphazardly without considering the effect on their brand and image. For God’s sake who is Jude Engees..??…an Agbaya feeding off the success of his younger brothers. If there was no deal as being bandied around why did Engees Okoye issue that statement in the first place…

    yeah, daz life. . . . . 1 has 2 get dwn 4 anoda 2 stand up. . .bt iz sickening dat dis had 2 come up 4 MayD @ dis time. . . . .hope he gat a beta opportunity elsewhere. . . .no wahala dey !

    Shut the – up @Truthbetold. MAY D was the ultimate gainer. Nobody used him. lemme ask u fool a simple question. Did May D bring anything to the table when he was signed? The dude was totally unknown at the time. Rather, he’s joining Square Records, brought him fame and fortune. The Psquare brand is already famous worldwide. So if anybody was used, the Psquare brand was used by MAY D to achieve fame and fortune. Waje was unknown at the time the ‘Do me’ song was done. Her voicing out that she was in the video made her what she is today because the song was a massive hit worldwide and as a contributor in that song people reckoned with her. Waje and Psquare enjoy a seamless relationship. Dont forget she was at the invasion concert. So next time you want to put a comment here, let it be devoid of sentiments. –

      May D gave ” Chop My M<oney" life and soul. He is the unique flavour in that song. The others just sound the same in the song. You take out May D's part and you will hear the difference ..P/s lets not be rude to each other ok? We can communicate politely even in disagreement. Thanks.

    It is actually P-Square’s loss because his part of the “Chop my Money” song and video is the best . He can make it without them. he has the talent. he just needs to build the confidence and get a good manager/promoter.

  33. nkiru

    August 22, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    FYI – May D wrote chop my money and a bunch of their songs. So they both gained from each other.

    August 22, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    I still don’t understand why people talk without thinking… “amature tin”.
    We don’t knw what happened btw them yet we ar talkin shit…
    MayD’s good is PSquare’s work. Who knw mayd befor the signin by square records. People should try to abide to d rules bindin wher d ar till d ar on there own, dn d can now do anyhow.

    May people ar lookin for such mayd’s opportunty. I knw somthin must b wrong somwher…we will later dt d real fact wit tym.
