King of blings, Oris Erhuero, popularly known as Chris Aire and Port Harcourt based singer- turned-producer, Duncan Ikechukwu Wene Mighty have parted ways after two years of business partnership.
Aire says the partnership has done exactly what it sets out to achieve and therefore he’s now withdrawing to focus on his other businesses that needs his attention.
Speaking from his office in Abuja, Chris said, “This split also gives Duncan Mighty the chance to focus on his home career and continue to develop the young musicians under his tutelage. He is very talented and I wish him all the best”.
A statement by the popular jeweller’s camp said, “Aire and Duncan Mighty signed a business agreement in May 2011, to further the career of the dance-hall act and to form the Niger Delta Music and Art Project (NDMAP).
“The purpose of the NDMAP is to develop the careers of young upcoming artists from the Niger Delta, giving them opportunities to build their career on a scale not common to find.
“In this two-year period, Duncan Mighty was able to fully establish himself as an artiste outside the walls of Port Harcourt, recording and performing with international music superstar such as Shaggy and shutting down tops shows in and out of the country.
“Leveraging his connections with industry’s heavyweights worldwide, Chris was able to set Duncan up to record and perform with international music superstar like Shaggy; shoot and release several music videos on Duncan Mighty and enabled the inauguration of the Niger Delta Music and Art project finding several young artists who are currently being groomed to be future hit musicians like Duncan Mighty himself,” the statement read.
Aire who made his fame and money outside the country is so passionate about his homeland and regards his partnership with Duncan Mighty as one of his ways of giving back to his country. Aire is fluent in Urhobo, Yoruba, Igbo, Arabic, and also has the capabilities to speak some French and Italian.
There is so far no reaction from Duncan Mighty on the development.
