Ghanaian artiste Feli Nuna has revealed that she believes that Musician Fuse ODG signed her onto his Off Da Ground record label for the “hype” and show-off.
Responding to claims by Fuse ODG that she was impatient while at the label, Feli stated that Fuse failed to meet the terms they had agreed upon before she signed the deal.
“At this point, I believe Fuse ODG signed me to his label for hype. Just for show. He wasn’t ready to do the work. I really had high hopes. Fuse disappointed me, to be honest,” she tweeted.

If the energy isn't right I will remove myself. In any situation.
According to Feli Nuna, in 2020 after being independent for almost two years she was offered two record deals; “one from an American Record Label based in New York for $135,000 plus incentives; and OFF DA GROUND for no money(but a good percentage of splits of revenue and masters).”
She added that she chose ODG because of her friendship with him and his achievements as an artiste.
“More over I was convinced by the songs we had started recording in 2019.
I believed that with hard work and dedication, we were going to make way more than what was offered me in the US deal,” she noted.
I’m in my big girl pants era enjoying my peace of mind and regaining my mental health and this vawulence found me. Oh Gawd! 🤦🏾♀️— Miss Nu. (@FeliNuna) April 21, 2023
Feli also said that she signed with Off Da Ground record label in 2020 to build her brand and make money. However, things did not go the way she wanted.
“Unfortunately my full-time career was treated like a part-time hobby. No accountability. Bare minimum effort. After several appeals both personally and officially nothing changed,” the ‘Towel’ singer wrote.
After her two-year contract with ODG ended in 2022, she added she refused to renew it because she was offered “an unencouraging amount for the production and promotion” of her incoming project ‘Big Girl Pants’.
Feli further explained that the label’s dedication and efficiency were minimal, and she deserved more for her hard work. She endured the two-year contract’s excruciating term amidst all these challenges, but her patience ran out.
“They were giving me the bare minimum. I work too hard. I deserve more,” she stated.
The singer and rapper also noted that she was patient while she endured “the excruciating term of the 2-year contract amidst all these challenges.”

And yeah you would never have guessed because I wear it well.
I don’t look like what I’ve been through.
In a recent interview with 3FM, Fuse ODG stated that he did not stop working with Feli, but he felt she could be more patient to grow with his label. He advised that one cannot expect quick results within a year and must be patient while pushing.
