Van Choga speaks out on leaving Seh Calaz and YalaNation. Today we woke-up to the news of Van Choga living Seh Calaz and his YalaNation Record label. People reacted to the news with a lot of mixed feelings and from those feelings, a lot of them were suggesting that he made his move too soon.
The likes of Lazzie T who worked with the artist were disappointed by the move. But finally the chanter has issued a statement regarding why he decided to make this move. Check his press statement below
I would like to take this opportunity to address certain things written about me on social networks. Firstly, I can confirm that I have left Yala Nation due to circumstances I won’t divulge at this stage. I, however, would like to stress that my respect for Seh Calaz hasn’t changed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Seh Calaz and Yala Nation, which has been my artistic home for the past few months. Seh Calaz took me under his wing, and provided an enabling environment for me to grow, without even judging my brand and artistic delivery. I am forever grateful.
The past few months have been an eye-opener and learning curve for me. Our Zim music industry has those we look up to, those who came before us, those who support us and those who look up to us. I can only hope that whatever we do, we grow it to the level of us competing and collaborating with others across the continent. Zim brands, keep on investing in our industry, keep the fire burning.
I would like to thank all my fans and the Zim Dancehall fraternity for the love and words of encouragement.
I thank you.
