Curvy singer Winnie Nwagi has expressed her concerns about why she is not happy with her record label. Nwagi is on the verge of quitting Swangz Avenue.

The ‘Show Me‘ singer is not happy with the way attention has been drifted away from her by the Swangz Avenue management to focus on upcoming talent.

It should be noted that every two years, the Muyenga based Swangz Avenue record label uplifts a new artiste in their bid to nurture raw talent. This has been the label’s trend and how they have managed to introduce big stars like Irene Ntale, Zulanda, Keko, Rabadaba, Young Zee, Zulanda, Blackskin among others.

At the start of last year, Swangz Avenue shifted focus from their lead star Winnie Nwagi to focus on Vinka, the singer who has risen through the ranks quite faster than usual. With the exit of Irene Ntale from Swangs Avenue in 2015, Winnie Nwagi thought her time had come to take over and be the biggest trending star like Ntale had been. But that is not what happened, it instead led to the rise of Vinka, who is Irene Ntale’s former manager. Vinka replaced Irene Ntale, and somehow Winnie Nwagi’s momentum was lost.

Now, Winnie Nwagi has stressed out allegations of negligence and being under rated by the officials and directors of Swangz Avenue as the reason she will quit if that is not corrected. Nwagi complains about the unfair treatment and decrease in income since Vinka gets most of the contracts to perform at concerts at the expense of the other Swangz Avenue artistes. She also says her music projects are no longer pushed as they used to be, and efforts are being put elsewhere.

It should be noted that Irene Ntale quit Swangz Avenue over similar issues, when Winnie Nwagi was fronted ahead of the ‘Stamina Daddy‘ singer. Ntale quit and is pursuing a likely successful solo career.

We hope the Swangz Avenue management can rectify this issue, they cannot afford losing another big star.
