On how he was remunerated for his efforts as a member of the label, Lyta said there were times when he got paid as much as 50-80k. He, however, added that after the release of his singles Time and Selfmade, he never got anything as compensation.
He said at a point in time, he got a call from his dad telling him that a benefactor had shown interest in supporting his music, and as such he should bring it to Olamide’s notice.
On informing Olamide, the rapper gave him a go ahead and told him to proceed if he thinks the move is best suited for his career that the time.
