He signed a record deal with YBNL Nation in 2018 but left the label in May 2019 after having a disagreement with Olamide. He released the 5-track debut EP Id in 2019.
Reports about Lyta’s exit from YBNL surfaced after Olamide unfollowed him on Instagram. In May 2019, Lyta confirmed his exit from YNBL Nation on Naijaloaded TV.
He said although he was paid between 50,000 and 80,000 for shows, he never had a written contract with the label. Olamide issued a statement to Guardian Life, saying YBNL has a promotion calendar that Lyta refused to follow.
Ever since his exit, he has been alone without a record label. Thankfully, Naira Marley signed him into his own record label ‘MalianMusic’.
