A source at HF Music who spoke with Pulse said:

This judgment is expected to have serious implication on the Nigerian music industry, as record label owners and investors can now feel safe investing in artistes, knowing that their investment is protected by the law. On the other hand, artistes are now expected to sit-up and take their contractual obligations more serious, knowing that breaching their contract might turn out to be a career ending move.

As at the time of this report neither HF Music nor Zeez has commented on the latest legal development.
