Newly Signed 323 Entertainment Artist CDQ Parts Ways with Tee Billz

Published

CDQ

A couple of months ago Tee Billz signed one of the hottest artists of 2015, CDQ, to his management group 323 Entertainment (click here if you missed it).

In a new interview with HipTV, CDQ has confirmed that he and Tee Billz have parted ways because, according to him, he hasn’t been able to reach Tee Billz since ‘the incident’ and he has to move on with his life.

He further stated that their separation doesn’t mean that they are not family and that his loyalty will always lie with 323 Entertainment.

    If this is true then T Billz is really unprofessional. Regardless of what you are going through you have to keep in touch with the people you are managing.

    Nothing unprofessional about a sick man,trying to put his life back after major private set back.People must learn to show empathy and know when to keep quite.

      @Yomi

      Are you serious? This is the reason why Africans lag behind the world in every respect and people are cosigning your nonsense with 90’s like. In what world is it professional to not communicate with your employee and disappear. In the real world where things are done properly you contact your employees via email or another person and take a leave of absence to deal with your personal issues. What does being professional have to do with a lack of empathy. But then again this is Africa so I am not surprised!

    At Yomi, that is pretty unprofessional actually. How would you feel if you showed up at work consistently and at the end of the month, you receive no pay, no communication from your boss and no reimbursement of your transport expenses and then you are informed that he and his wife are going through a divorce. Yes you sympathise but a contract is a contract unfortunately.

    I saw it on HipTV yesterday. the guy said he’s not heard from Teebillz since the incident between him and his wife.
    I’ll agree with the guy because business is what brought them together and since T is nowhere to be found, life must go on.

  7. His health first.

    May 24, 2016 at 1:39 pm

    Nothing unprofessional about it.Please health is wealth.He must be alive first,everything else is secondary for now,we all know the challenges his passing through,A man God delivered from sucidal thoughts and his still healing,deserves more understanding from reasonable people.

      Is he running a one-man-business? Isn’t there a second in command who could have tidied up the paper work? Your maiguard broke his leg, does your gate remain locked for the 9 weeks he needs to heal?

    Guys these comments show we are really a society built on sentiments which is the bane of our problems in Nigeria. Remember when the country came to a standstill because Yar Adua was sick, how did we all feel?? Yes we understand and sympathise with T-Billz and certainly expect him to face his health 1st but looking from the perspective of an employee who has to feed and survive, nothing wrong with walking away and finding better opportunities when the contact terms are not being met. Would T-billz’s divorce proceedings pay him?

    He can move on,but to blame a person you have not seen or heard from,to me is wrong,because we all know his just coming out from a major challenge.Nothing unprofessional about getting himself back to good frame of mind.

    Guys these comments show that we really are a society built on sentiments which is the bane of our problems in Nigeria. Remember when former President Yar ‘Adua was sick and the country came to a standstill? How did we feel?? Of course we sympathise with T-Billz and expect that he is focusing on nursing himself back to health but I’m speaking from the viewpoint of an employee who has to feed and survive. There is certainly nothing wrong with walking away when the contract terms are not being met to seek other opportunities. If you lived in the West, where you literally lived from pay check to pay check, some of you would certainly not be making such comments as “more understanding after deliverance from God”.

    Dont mind them. So if the guy had died wont all the people on his record label move on. Someone that was so suicidal. It must really be tough time for any one, on top off getting divorced and shamed so publicly. Abroad a person can be off work for even 2 months due to thier mental health; depression and so on . Guy can move on all he wants , but be sensitive about it ….. Jeez

    My dear,some of BN readers write from abroad,from as far Åland as Australia,all over Europe and the states.Nobody should lecture us about how things are done,In Holland where I live,you will be excused from work with pay for as long as you want,once the doctor confirms the need for more healing.Forget any talk of abroad and sentiments,you are not making any reasonable point.

    What is the crux of the argument?Whether it is right/wrong for CDQ to move on OR right/wrong for TBIllz not to communicate? For me, perfectly right for CDQ to move on if he feels the need to. Re TBillz not communicating, well that’s relative depending on his condition but if there are decisions to be taken, someone needs to take them.

    Life should not be only about business,the need to be your brothers keeper,and feel for his general well being shoul equally count for something.

    Move on as long as you sorted out the legal angle “if” there was an underlying contract.
    323 Entertainment is a legal entity, I suppose. Tee Billz’s lawyers should handle that, sentiments apart.
    CDQ has the right to focus on and build his business (music) which operates in a very dynamic industry.
    Tee Billz made the mistake of “courting the cyclone” (bringing his private affairs to the public) in such a negative way. Let’s all learn that there are consequences – actions and reactions are equal and opposite.
    Sentiments, sympathy, blames have come and gone. Life goes on.

    Greed and self centeredness have taken over the heart of men,no sense of comradeship anymore,once there’s money to be made,family becomes nothing,an object of ridicule or more.too bad.

  19. Unrelated please..kkay take note.

    May 24, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    The need to be quite and move on is equally important,when one is not making sense.Longing to drive home a point that’s not relevant or necessary is just shameful.No perfect being,so please no need for the blame game.

    Life’s challenges can be tough sometimes,midlife crises in men are often more difficult,due to ego and pride.

    but not to completely be unavailable for almost a month. Even when people are admitted to hospital they at least send a text or pay someone or get someone from their team/staff to contact stakeholder like the people they manage and letting them know theres a one month or 6 month hiatus for example
    Besides that people especially those who run an established business like his need to think of succession planning, even if its as basic as having that junior staff who has an idea about your business so should anything happen to you they know what to do or could be assigned to do stuff. If not for anything then for the fact that people may not want to associate with you if you’re a one man business or company for this same reason that Teebillz have displayed. Imagine the business this guy and his immediate family would have lost in the last month because teebillz who has access to business emails can’t access it an respond to potential gigs which will put food on his table

    you will be excused but there is a hand down policy, for example someone will be placed in charge of your email etc – not like in this case where the entire business (323 ent) and all the stakeholders e.g. investors, clients, music acts etc will sit and be waiting on teebillz to get back to them. This guy has just lost a month of livelihood – perhaps school fees no whatnot been paid etc.
    not blaming teebillz for taking time off but i still think he should have previously put some plan in place than running a one man biz for a business and brand as established as this. i personally think he’s just ashamed to face industry people otherwise he could have assigned someone to email all stakeholders saying he’s taking a break rather than leave them hanging even if its his house boy, pa, lawyer etc

    Hi Tunde, you will be “excused from work” as you rightly say, meaning there is communication from you to your employers in which case there is a handover of your responsibilities to a colleague. In this case, if we go by CDQ’s statement, he hasn’t heard from the label since the incident. Can you simply answer honestly how long you would wait assuming you were an employee with no word from your employer for several months with no pay? I maintain we are a society of sentiments!

    At the end of the day, we understand why Nigeria has remained “developing” in spite of all the close calls to being the next big economy. Our mentality is unprofessional and we are very sentimental. It’s hard for me to believe Tee Billz is ill; it’s more like he’s hiding. He never expected the massive support Tiwa would receive after he dissed her publicly. He also never expected the massive shaming that would come his way. That’s fine- we all miscalculate sometimes. But sulking in one corner won’t pay bills, dude. He needs to man up, grow some balls, admit he messed up and be determined to make it, if only to prove his detractors calling him a “useless oloshi” wrong.
    You don’t sign a contract and take off ‘cos you’re having personal problems. There’s no need to bring in empathy. He has friends; he has partners. Let them communicate on his behalf- a handover of sorts. You don’t just go incommunicado because “my wife/life sucks” when you have people depending on you.
