For people who are not too familiar with the story, in 2011, Lynx Entertainment announced the decision to part ways with Asem.

In the statement, they released after the rape allegation got into the media space, they said: the reasons for the action were as follows: “That Lynx Entertainment and Asem have had differences in opinion as to the direction his career should go; For the past few months, Asem has been under a new management and certain decisions taken by the artist and his new management have not represented the general image the record label wishes to portray; and Lynx Entertainment also feels that keeping Asem on the label could limit him from pushing his career in the direction that he sees fit.”
