In a statement signed by CEO Audu Maikori, Chocolate City says Jagz does not owe them a dime, does not do marijuana, and never at any time was rude to the label or its executives.
‘First, the comment that, ‘Choc City said Jargo owed them money, there were several cases where he would travel to the North for a gig and wouldn't bring back anything to the label’, are claims that are totally unfounded. Chocolate City states that Jesse Jagz has not and does not owe them any monies from any shows performances till date.’
Continuing, the label also said ‘the comment that, ‘Jesse Jagz, a truly talented rapper and producer, is addicted to Marijuana, is untrue. Chocolate City states categorically that Jesse Jagz does not have a history of Marijuana abuse neither did it or any of its staff make any allegations to that effect.’
"I want a man who fears God. A man who is confident and comfortable and would not be intimidated by things that come with what I do. I know what it is to be talking with a friend and somebody you don't know from Adam would come to excuse you and say " I want to take a picture with you" It keeps going on and on. So it's somebody who understands that can take this. Then that person must be handsome. As a single mother the natural question people must ask is about the relationship that produced the child and what happened? some things are better left unsaid. It did not work out that is it. It has nothing to do with music or me doing music, it just didn't work out."
