Last Month, Mwalimu put to rest accusations of denying Sailors logins their YouTube logins. In a detailed explanation, Mwalimu said that she was not demanding the Sh1.5 Million from Sailors but their new management that inked a new contract with the group.
According to Rachel, Sailors signed a new contract with another record label behind her back, yet she was the one managing them under her brand MRX Media t that particular time.
“…As a business, that has no binding contract or agreement with a third party, would it really make sense to just hand over log in’s? The simple answer is, no. This record label saw it fit to ask me to sell them the YouTube channel for 100K. As a way of getting them off my back I said the estimated value of that channel and the work my team and I put in it, is 1.5 Million (I’m starting to think I underquoted lol) I was charging the record label that wanted to take ownership of this channel, NOT Sailors. Let’s be clear on this part. I am very ready to cut cords with Sailors, after all it’s just business, nothing personal, but I know theres a proper way to do it. I’m not trying to “hold on” as many would argue. I am simply doing what’s best for my company and the investment we put into them. You don’t simply hand over log in’s and other sensitive material simply because your artist has “moved on”. Equity, Ownership and Return On investment. Read up on that. Hiyo ndio homework kwa sasa” said Mwalimu Rachel in part.
Currently, Sailors are being managed by Black Market Records.
