Dummies were well and truly thrown out of the pram last night as Clement Marfo, the lead artist of Clement Marfo and The Frontline criticised his record label and self released half of the band’s debut album.
The south London MC is frustrated that the band’s record label Warner Bros have delayed their album and tweeted his annoyance to his eleven thousand plus fans:
The talented star who quit his job, dropped out of university and saved up to become a musician, said that corporate politics had gotten in the way of their success and led to the delay of their album, which was due for release at the end of the year.
Warner Bros apparently told the group that they are not connecting with their audience anymore, a statement which Clement strongly refuted.
He then went on to say that he doesn’t want to disappear from the music scene and released numerous tracks from their album onto YouTube.
Warner Bros have since removed all the tracks uploaded to YouTube and we can imagine there is going to be a very awkward meeting between Clement Marfo and label executives very soon.
The label have now removed the music but they CANNOT put out this flame. Spread the filth like wildfire #fuckthelabel
