As part of his desire to spread his wings and explore his horizon, Malawian rapper Gemini Major has bid farewell to Cassper Nyovest’s record label, Family Tree.
This could be regarded as the biggest break-up in the country’s music world. Nevertheless, it’s for the greater good and the rapper is not leaving empty handed. In a press statement, the Ragga Ragga hitmaker said it had been a “great journey” with “special memories” made. He was especially thankful for the opportunity to have worked with the Mama I Made It hitmaker.
However, he feels it’s time to move on to greater heights.
“Now it’s time to focus on other things and grow as an artist and brand,” reads part of the statement.
Gemini Major is leaving Family Tree to start Rudebouy Major, his own record label in partnership with Fresh 2 Def, owned by Da L.E.S.
“The future is full of possibilities, and I charge ahead with so much optimism and positive vibes. It’s a matter of time before Rudebouy Major becomes a force to be reckoned with in the local music space. Watch out for us and all the new artists and collaborations we will unleash in the not so distant future,” he said.
Though he’s well known in hip-hop, Gemini’s collections include R&B, house, dance hall, pop and gospel. In addition, his portfolio includes production used in shows like Gold Diggers.
The in-demand producer has been an asset on many of the songs he featured on including Ragga Ragga and Cassper’s Fever and Skelm. He also produced Nasty C’s Pressure and Riky Rick’s Sidlukotini.
In the press statement through which he announced his departure from Family Tree, Gemini had nothing bad to say about Cassper or the rest of his stable mates. Hopefully, there was not beef between them.
