Furthermore, AY Poyoo emphasized the importance of international performances and independent ventures outside of the label’s scope, believing it to be the primary avenue for maximizing his income from music.

In accordance with the contract terms, Aborga Records retains ownership of all songs produced and released under the agreement.

The label is entitled to recoup all funds invested, totaling Twenty Thousand, Six Hundred and Twenty-Two Ghana Cedis, from the songs they hold rights to.

However, as a gesture of goodwill, the label has agreed to transfer all stream earnings to AY Poyoo once the recoup process is completed.
