With mere weeks to his birthday, singer Jayon is one act we all need to again pay attention to.
The former Kennis Music act made new a while back when he revealed that during his time with the label, he spent most of his money on his career.
In his words;
“When I was under Kennis Music, a lot of people did not know but I spent most of my money. I put my money back into the business and that was what the label was supposed to do for me. I can count how many videos I shot with my money and it was not Jaywon that was there but Kennis Music. Because it is a label and it is being run by human beings. If your label does not have money to shoot a video for you and you decide not to take any action, it is your career that would die. You are killing yourself. I can easily release a song and shoot a video for it because I am used to it. I shoot videos in and outside the country with my own money because that is what I have been doing all my life. When someone tells me to go back to my former record label, I ask ‘what am I going to do there? Is it to go and be spending my money again? If I have to defend myself against all the things people have been saying about me, a lot of things would get spoilt and a lot of controversies would come up again and I am not really ready for that. All these that I am even saying I really don’t like talking about it because nobody forced me to go to Kennis Music. I signed the contract myself and they did not put a gun to my head. Whatever went wrong, I should be responsible enough to handle it.”
