The dying music career of Wutah was brought back to life on May 12, 2017 when Guru’s NKZ records signed the music duo. Their contractual agreement gave financial freedom to Wutah for the production of their songs.
Remember that Wutah under NKZ records managed to serve music enthusiasts with chart-topping songs like “Bronya” & “AK47″. So, fans of Wutah were convinced that the NKZ deal will have a lot of positive impact on Wutah only if it continues.
But Guru who happens to be the leader and founder of NKZ records has revealed that Wutah’s contract with the label won’t be renewed after expiration. Speaking to DJ Reuben on Luv FM’s Drive Time, Guru said that the expiration of the contract is not far from reach – everything will come to an end before 2020.
“Wutah’s contract will end this year but we can’t continue the partnership afterwards. My association with Wutah has taught me a lot although I can’t disclose all the lows and highs in public. But the renewal of the contract is never an option”, Guru said.
As a reminder, Wutah came into the limelight in 2004 when it contested for the Nescafe Africa Revelation music competition in Accra and came second to Praye. The name Wutah is a Hausa word which means fire.
Their debut album, ‘Anamontuo’ which has songs like ‘Adonko’, ‘Goosie Gander’ and ‘Big Dreams’ earned them eleven nominations including The Most Popular Song of the Year, Album Of the Year and Artiste of the Year in the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
