Among the allegations was that he took over ownership of her name in a bad contract deal that left the singer struggling with her music. She also claimed that she lost her VEVO account, Instagram account and royalties after the relationship between the two went sour.
Jude Okoye has now stepped forward to tell his own side of the story, however, in an Instagram Live video with Tunde Ednut which lasted for over an hour and attracted over 22 thousand people including Davido, Korede Bello, Toyin Abraham, Special Spesh, and Peter Okoye.
The music executive revealed that he does not own Cynthia Morgan’s name, adding that no court would grant him ownership of her legal name. He also added that she wanted to change her name to Madrina, something he advised against.
Although the music executive denied taking over her social media accounts, he did admit that he took over her VEVO account in order to recoup the 40 million Naira he invested in her career.
“I don’t understand, if she has a contract where it is stated like that, she should bring it so we can see. The one I have here is not different. How can I hold her name, which court can grant it?
“You want to do things on your own because you think you can do things on your own, then you failed and you want to put the blame on me.
“Two years after you left the label, your social media accounts are still yours, you are still going on shows behind me and you still want to blame me for your failure. If you put the blame on me, would that make you rise again?
“I have never for once told CYNTHIA MORGAN that she cannot use her name. I had no power to take that name, it is physically impossible to do that. “Did I chase her with a court injunction? No.
“What exactly did I do wrong? I shouldn’t have let you go when I left? Your contract hasn’t expired and you left. I let you go.
“Before she left, she wanted to change her name to Madrina says it means ‘Godmother. I advised against.
“I shot 13 videos, each worth N3M. If I have not made my N40 M, why the f*ck should I allow you go? How will I get back my money?”
