The ongoing rift between entertainment company, Chocolate City and Brymo, an artiste previously signed to the label took a turn in a favour of Brymo as the case was lifted by presiding judge, Justice I Baba at the Federal High Court,Lagos.

‘Since the plaintiff (Chocolate City) can be compensated at a later date, the defendant is free to carry out his duties as a singer so that none of the parties will be at a disadvantage,’ Justice Buba said.

The judge insisted that Brymo had to go on with his career while the matter remains in court, so as not to put either parties at a disadvantage.

“An underground artiste signed for a record label in good faith and believed his career will be propelled. All that was promised was not fulfilled and the singer couldn’t promote himself. He wants to be released because artistes in this music industry have a short career span,‘ she told the court.”

Brymo’s counsel also told the court that Chocolate City informed Brymo that they wouldn’t be able to fund his second album because they were financing other artistes on the label. It was also revealed that Brymo signed a five-year and three-album contract with Chocolate City, which was due to expire on April 13, 2016.

The judge adjourned the case till March,19 2013. Both parties are required to provide witnesses to back up their cases.
