Temi has been Reekado’s manager from the begining of his career, but the singer has dropped him now saying his vision has grown and he needs people who ”see as far as he sees.”

In a recent interview with Cool FM, Reekado explained that, ‘It was just next level dealings, I wanted to get somewhere else, the vision became alot farther, like I saw farther than I used to see and I just needed somebody that’ll see as much, most especially someone that’s been there with other people (artists) but me and my brother are cool’.
