Fast-rising musician Irene Ntale went public on Monday about her departure from Swangz Ave, and immediately announced her kid sister Sandra Ntale as her manager.
Well, Swangz Ave boss Benon Mugumbya has also spoken out about Irene Ntale’s departure, saying it was by mutual consent. He also clarified that it was Irene who requested for the separation though no reason has been given yet.
“Swangz Avenue and Irene Ntale have parted company by mutual consent. We would like to bring to record our thanks to Irene Ntale for the hard work, integrity and honesty she put forward during our four years of work,” says Mugumbya.
He added that Irene Ntale is the biggest artiste to have emerged from Swangz Ave for the nine years that they have been in existence.
“All at Swangz thank Irene for her immense contribution since we signed her in March of 2013. Her numerous awards and numerous chat topping hits in just 4 years make Irene the most successful female artiste in our 9 year history. Irene asked to leave the label and we believe it is in the best interests of both parties.”
“Swangz wishes to make clear Irene leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Swangz. Her legacy at Swangz and the country at large has long been guaranteed and she will always be warmly received. We wish Irene all the best in her endeavors.”
Irene Ntale officially parted ways with Swangz Ave yesterday breaking the news of her exit through social media. According to sources, the ‘Sembera’ hit maker has not been at ease with her management since her first concert.
It’s said she was not pleased with the way the proceeds from her massively attended concert were shared. She had actually planned to quit immediately but later opted to hold on. Others sources say she quit because Swangz Ave had systematically started sidelining her with all attention turning to Winnie Nwagi.
