Circumstances surrounding the end of working relations between dancehall singer Latinum and the Gifted Music Group (GMG) record label about a year ago were never openly discussed by neither parties. Latinum has now apologized to his former bosses, and has rejoined GMG.

When he broke through with his hit single titled ‘Amanya Gange’, Latinum attracted big deals from major record labels in the Ugandan music industry. The highest bidder, Gifted Music Group, took over his management and the change in his brand was immediately visible. The GMG acquired various platforms for the young singer to perform and helped promote his music to allover East Africa.

Despite all the hard work put in, the two parties later fell out over unclear circumstances and Latinum settled for a solo career. One year later now however, the ‘Baabo’ singer has rebounded his decision to quit GMG and has apologized in order to be taken back to the camp that helped him at such a crucial stage of his music career.

Latinum apologized to his fans and the CEO of GMG, Paul Owor, who was quick to forgive him after understanding the hardships the young singer has been through since leaving the record label. He now joins Allan Toniks, the new signed artiste on the record label, and we can start anticipating for a collaboration between the two.

In a Facebook post, Latinum addressed his fans saying;

It’s okay to make mistakes as long as you don’t repeat it. I know I am only human so I have made some unmendable mistakes in life but am now here to correct it. I would like to take this moment to apologize to the management of Gifted Music Group and the CEO Mr. Paul Owor for all the negative comments I made on all media platforms when I left GMG, all the lies I told about the label and all the pain I caused to the management, friends and fans of the label. I also would like to apologize to all the fans out there who feel betrayed when I left Gifted Music Group, please forgive me, I need your support because without you fans there would be no Latinum. I would have written much more but I already met Mr. Paul Owor and apologized Physically and he accepted me back just like the prodigal son.

Do you forgive him? Either way, it is such a bold move, and we hope to hear new projects from the Baba Lati.
