Rayvanny speaks on plans to exit WCB Wasafi (Video)

Vanny Boy sets the record straight

Rayvanny and Diamond Platnumz

Tetema hit-maker Raymond Shaban Mwakyusa aka Rayvanny has quashed reports that he is planning to part ways with Diamond Platnumz's owned Label WCB Wassafi.

Vanny Boy made the clarification during an interactive session with his fans while appearing on Wasafi TV.

A curious fan asked “Kwa mfano sasa hivi inatokea unaambiwa sasa hivi kuwa unahama label ya wasafi, Label gani nyingine ambayo unahisi unaweza ukaenda?


The WCB signee stated that he is not ditching WCB Wasafi any time soon and but he can only start his own record label if need be, because he has the capability to do so.

“Before sijaongeoa chochote, Vanny Boy, Wasafi for Life Beiby. Kwanza nisema naishukuru sana Management yangu, WCB Wasafi, Namshukuru sana Diamond Platnumz kwa sehemu niliyofika. Nikiamua kuwa na label, naweza hata kuwa na label hata tano. So there is no way kwamba nitoke Wasafi alafu niende kuwa chini ya Label nyingine, Labda niwe na label kumi zingine za kwangu mimi” said Rayvanny.

Vanny Boy is one of the WCB signee’s with many collaborations with Diamond among them; Tetema, Vumbi, Mwanza, Salome, Iyena, Zilipendwa and Quarantine.

He was officially signed under WCB Wasafi back in 2015 and released his first single under the label dubbed Kwetu in 2016.
