Detailed information gathered by Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture And Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com indicates Universal Music had been ‘slow’ in the process hence the group’s decision to release it independently.
However, Universal Music flew its team down to Ghana over the weekend to finalise the process.
