RTE and Slaughterhouze part ways
20 January 2021 | Art and Entertainment
Namibian record label Remember The Eagle (RTE) Records has agreed to part ways with local group Slaughterhouze.
While the group consists of DJ Spuzza, Chester Houseprince, Txngos and Mega, the latter two will stay on at the record label as solo artists.
This comes after a dispute regarding performance revenue.
When a portion of revenue was given to Slaughterhouze, the group demanded the other half, which the label intended on investing in their future plans as previously agreed.
Ennio Hamutenya, founder and CEO of RTE Records, said: “It is unfortunate that we could not remain a force and execute the vision we had for Slaughterhouze”.
Not entertaining ‘social media antics’
‘From today, we will no longer be associated with Slaughterhouze. I wish DJ Spuzza and Txngos nothing but success in their music careers. I hope that they use what we have done for them for the good of their careers,” he said.
“RTE Records will not be entertaining social media antics. What Slaughterhouze is trying to make this look like is far from the reality of it. This will be our only statement regarding Slaughterhouze,” Hamutenya said.
“RTE wishes Slaughterhouze all the best with their future endeavours. The label will continue to do what it does best – take Namibian artists all the way to the top.”
