When Moses Tarus Omondi, alias Mr. Seed, announced that he was leaving Eastlands Most Beloved (EMB) Records on January 29 this year, many thought it was a suicidal career move.
His future looked bleak because award-winning Bahati, who owns the record label, had managed to bring him back from oblivion.
You see, the relationship between Mr. Seed and Bahati is very interesting so much so that someone should write a book about it.
Maybe you are aware of this, maybe you aren’t but perhaps you should know that Mr. Seed introduced Bahati to the local music industry.
As fate would have it, Bahati became so big that he had to help Mr. Seed rebuild his music career through EMB Records.
After two years at the stable, Mr. Seed announced that he had decided to go independent so as to to pave way for upcoming artists who needed the platform to grow.

His departure from EMB Records seemed like a rushed decision particularly because there were rumors that he got upset after Bahati kicked out his girlfriend Nimo Gachuiri during an event in Thika.
Most music fans thought that he was done for good since he had fallen out with Bahati who had played a big role in bringing him back to the music scene.
Truth is, Mr Seed has been more successful after leaving EMB Records. His star is still shining, some people would say that it’s even brighter. Perhaps it was not a terrible decision after all.
Apart form opening a new record label, Mr Seed has released three new songs since he left EMB Records, including a collabo with the one and only Solomon Mkubwa. That’s no mean feat!
He seems to be doing well unlike most Kenyan artists who disappear from the music scene after leaving their stables.
It’s almost as if he has a new song every month. Just recently, he had a concert dubbed Made in Huruma which did exceptionally well.
You should definitely watch out for Mr. Seed! Watch his new single Simama and tell us what you think.
