According to Joey B, he doesn’t see anything wrong for a follow artistes signing another artist on to his/her record label. yet sign somebody on really for their improvement and not for you as the Artiste to look great.
Joey B included that the issue with signing artiste to your label is, you sign them on, they blow huge and that is the point at which they would begin disrespecting you.
In an interview with Jay Foley on Hitz FM concerning artistes signing different artistes on to their label, he stated,
“Signing artistes on to your own label isn’t a bad idea but for me, I’m not sure i would sign any artiste; i might co-produce, endorse you or something of a sort but i won’t sign any new act. Because if you don’t take care, after the artistes blow big, that artiste might disappoint you and you would rather be very hurt for helping someone.”
Joey B also bigged up Stonebwoy for all that he’s done for Kelvyn Boy and OV.
“Sometimes when you sign artistes, it relegates you, and that’s why i love Stonebwoy. Despite the fact that he signed artistes, he still makes time for himself and the other artistes; look at Kelvyn Boy and OV now; these two are big artistes on their own and so Stonebwoy deserves huge respect for all that he’s done for them.”
