‘Fuse ODG Signed Me To His Label For Hype, He Disappointed Me’ – Feli Nuna Fires

Ghanaian super-talented act, Feli Nuna has in a perennial tweet clarified why she didn’t continue her two-year contract with Fuse ODG’s Off Da Ground record label. 

Answering claims by Fuse ODG that she was intolerant while at the label, Feli composed that Fuse abjures on the terms they decided on before she got into the deal. 

The ”Azaa” hitmaker tweeted; “At this point, I believe Fuse ODG signed me to his label for hype. Just for show. He wasn’t ready to do the work. I had high hopes. Fuse disappointed me, to be honest.”

According to the versatile act, in 2020 after being solo for almost two years she was offered two record deals; “one from an American Record Label based in New York for $135,000 plus incentives; and OFF DA GROUND for no money(but a good percentage of splits of revenue and masters).”

She proceeded and counted that she selected ODG because of her pals with him and his accomplishments as an artiste. 

“More I was convinced by the songs we had started recording in 2019.

I believed that with hard work and dedication, we were going to make way more than what was offered me in the US deal,” she posted on Twitter. 

Feli also mentioned that she penned down a deal with Off Da Ground record label in 2020 to establish her brand and rake in revenue. However, things did not go the manner she wished for.

“Unfortunately my full-time career was treated like a part-time hobby. No accountability. Bare minimum effort. After several appeals both personally and officially nothing changed,” the ‘Sponsor’ vocalist noted. 

After her two-year contract with ODG ceased in 2022, she counted she declined to renew it because she was presented with “an unencouraging amount for the production and promotion” of her incoming project ‘Big Girl Pants’.

Expatiating into details, her conclusion not to extend the contract, she cited in her tweets that “the dedication and efficiency the label was already showing her was minimal.”

“They were giving me the bare minimum. I work too hard. I deserve more,” she noted. 

The super crooner and rapper also remarked that she was patient while she tolerated “the excruciating term of the 2-year contract amidst all these challenges.”

However, a few weeks ago, Fuse ODG uttered in an interview with an Accra-based radio station, 3FM, that Feli was not patient to grow with his label.

Quoting his exact utterances, he mentioned; “I did not stop working with Feli. I felt she could be more patient. She just wanted to see quicker results and we had just been working for a year. So like I’m saying you can’t expect things to just like in a year. Yeah. Gotta be patient but keep pushing.”  

While signed to Fuse ODG’s record outfit, the adorable versatile act dropped banging tunes such as ‘Anadwo’, and ‘Towel.’
