In an exclusive podcast interview, Liya, the singer who once held the title of “DMW’s First Lady,” has finally shared the reason behind her sudden departure from the famed Davido Music Worldwide (DMW) record label.
Known for her notable tracks such as “Lakiriboto” and “Melo,” Liya had undoubtedly left her mark during her time with the label.
However, her decision to part ways with DMW was driven by her belief that her burgeoning career wasn’t receiving the attention and support it deserved.
Liya opened up about her departure during the podcast interview, citing her longing for a fresh start and a new path in the music industry as the driving force behind her decision.
She expressed the need to carve her own musical journey, separate from the DMW brand.
One of the key factors in her departure, as Liya explained, was the perception that her career was not getting the necessary focus and backing from DMW.
While under the label, she had delivered several chart-topping hits, but her aspirations seemed to have been overshadowed or overlooked.
Despite her exit from DMW, Liya was quick to emphasize her admiration for the label’s current roster of artists and their achievements.
She extended her continued support and best wishes to DMW and its emerging talents, expressing hope for their success in their musical endeavors.
