The ‘Dunda’ hit maker, Mr. Seed is set to launch his recording label, Starborn Empire after he made an exit from Bahati’s EMB. It will be launched in a week or two. During an interview, he said that after his fallout with Bahati he used all his savings to put up a studio.
He has already signed in his first artist, Ndume who released his first song, ‘Za Yesu’, making it a second project from the label after Seed’s ‘Dunda’. The launch comes after his fiancée, Nimo Gachuiri, gave birth to their son, Gold Christen Omondi, two weeks ago.
The two have followed in the footsteps of Bahati by shooting a reality show that they broadcast on Seed’s YouTube channel. Mr Seed was joined by some producers, managers and David Wonder on his way out of EMB. Wonder’s fate remains unknown after the exit.
Kioko, Bahati’s former manager, who has been the longest-serving member of the label and has been dismissing reports that he left the label, now runs a clothes shop in town. As for the producers and managers who left alongside Mr Seed, some of them are said to have joined his camp.
The fate of EMB records hangs in the balance after the mass exit as it now has only two artistes signed up, Princess Leo and Danny Gift. Bahati’s style of management, which is said to be heavily influenced by his wife, Diana Marua, led to the exit of most of his staff.
