Rayvanny Opens Up About Leaving WCB Wasafi
Rayvanny, the founder of Next Level Music, shed light on his decision to leave Diamond Platnumz’s WCB Wasafi label in a recent interview. He explained that he felt he had reached a point in his career where he was ready to move on and help other artists grow.
“It’s just a natural progression,” Rayvanny stated. “I felt like I had learned and grown enough at Wasafi to stand on my own two feet and even help others along the way.”
He expressed his satisfaction with the progress he has made with his NLM label since leaving WCB a year ago. “Wasafi will always be family, but I’m grateful for the opportunity to pursue my own path,” he said, ” things are going very well for me.”
Talking about his departure, Rayvanny revealed that he informed Diamond casually and later notified the rest of the WCB team. While there were initial tensions, they eventually came to a peaceful agreement.
“I spoke to Diamond in a relaxed setting and explained my decision,” Rayvanny explained. “He’s proud of me, but things are not always straightforward. Despite some initial disagreements, we managed to reach a positive resolution and maintain our good relationship.”
He emphasized that while there were financial negotiations, the focus remained on preserving their relationship. “It’s understandable that these situations can involve money and disagreements, but ultimately, peace and respect are more important. We ended things on a positive note.”
Rayvanny went on to confirm that he had completed paying the significant sum required by Diamond for his departure. He claimed that the amount was more than double what fellow singer Harmonize had paid several years prior.
“I won’t go into specific figures, but it was a significant amount, possibly twice what Harmonize paid,” Rayvanny revealed. “However, peace of mind is more valuable than money. We maintained our respect and love for each other, and that’s what matters most.”
Rayvanny’s journey from WCB Wasafi to establishing his own successful label demonstrates his dedication to growth and his commitment to empowering other aspiring artists.
