As we anticipated that Swangz Avenue could be planning to get rid of singer Winnie Nwagi due to different personality controversies, the management label has instead announced that they have renewed the singer’s contract.
Through her social media pages, Nwagi said that she has put pen to paper to a new long term contract with Swangz. Nwagi who joined Swangz Avenue in 2014 has registered great success working with the industrial area based record label. Over the years, Nwagi has several hits to her name from her breakthrough hit Musawo to other monster hits like Kano Koze, Embeera, Jangu, Matala, Kibulamu, magic, detergent.
She has also been very successful with all collaborations with other artists. Fire Dancer with Nigeria’s Slim prince is up to now a song still on every djs’ playlist. Amaaso with her label mate Vinka was a big success last year and later remixed with Fefe Busi and Myth. Others include Science ft King Saha, Oyitayo with Chozen Blood, Bwogana with Rachel Ray and most notably the song of 2020 Kwata Essimu featuring Free Boy.
However, Nwagi comes with a lot of controversy from her wardrobe mishaps to hints of violence. She had a big share of backlash last year when she slapped her maid and her reluctance to apologize only escalated the matter and police got involved. The matter was later resolved when her record label stepped in.
Last week she broke the internet when together with her girlfriends went on a holiday in Fort Portal and released tantalizing photos in swim suits. To make her point that this was not in error, she released more at the start of this week. Winnie has caved a reputation of taking on social media bullies and taking on fans who criticize her on social media.
“Have you ever seen Winnie naked? We have never seen her naked,” Gonza Winnie Nwagi’s Manager said as he defended her nudity. Gonza also said that they have always given Nwagi the necessary advice on how she can handle social media trolls.
The contract renewal puts to bed all the rumors of potential fallout between her and Swangz Avenue a label that prides on good reputation and a strict code of conduct.
On what Nwagi has achieved since joining the label, Gonza said it’s a personal question that should be directed to Nwagi.
“Swangz is a talent management company that manages music careers of artists. For all our artists we give them the best service to aid their development as artists to help them become better musicians and business people,” he said.This is a big show of support by Swangz to their artist that seemed to cause the most trouble. They clearly looked at the talent and it out weighed the shortcomings.
