The Hip Hop and dancehall crooner during an instalive chat with ex-Miss Globe Nigeria, Cassandra, accused her former Northside Record label boss,  Jude Okoye of being the cause of her ordeals.

Morgan, who in an attempt to re-brand for a comeback into the industry changed her stage name to Madrina, disclosed that she lost almost everything including stage name “Cynthia Morgan”, her VEVO account, royalties, Instagram account and other things due to the contract she signed with Northside Inc records.

The singer also suggested that she had information that could wreck Jude Okoye but decided against such as it was unnecessary.

She further revealed that she became depressed thereafter and had to relocate to Benin to save cost for treatment of an illness that almost took her life.

On why she did not open up at that time, Morgan said she was not ready to talk as she believed it was a phase of life she would surmount. She however admitted that some of her colleagues in the music industry reached out to her for work, which she wasn’t ready to get back to at the time.

In a twist, Morgan’s former manager, Joy Tongo and Northside Inc record label boss, jude Okoye have debunked the singer’s accusations. While Okoye claimed Morgan owed the sum of N40 million, and a default contractual agreement; Tongo on her part, accused Cynthia of seeking sympathy with her story.
