Due to past experiences with his record label Cashtime, rapper and record producer K.O has decided not to sign any new artistes this year.
SA rapper and owner of recording label Skhanda Republic, K.O, has decided to learn from past experiences and lie low when it comes to signing new artistes this year.
K.O once had many artistes signed to his former record label Cashtime before his new project, Skhanda Republic. He claimed everything was good for a while until the artistes started leaving and the label fell away.
He recently took to Twitter to respond to a tweep questioning him whether he will be signing any new artistes this year or not.
He wrote: "This year wanted to get back into doing that I'm constantly reminded how the Cashtine thing burned me. Been advised to continue solely investing in myself for now. I'm open to assisting new talent wherever possible though, just not signing."
K.O plans to concentrate more on a solo career and work on his fashion label as well.
A month ago, Briefly.co.za reported on how K.O felt that rappers were losing their passion in music.
K.O has been rapping for more than a decade and was of the opinion that you can't only drop hits, but you also have to create something bigger outside of the music world.
He said with hip-hop, you have to be up and in fans' faces to gain their trust and be in the limelight, otherwise you will be left in the backseat.
