On Tuesday, November 6th, news made the round that one of the latest additions to the DMW stable, Idowest has had his contract with the label terminated hinting at instability within the label.

The Pop star has however come out to deny this via an Instagram story which had the words, ''Please stop the stupid rumours, no contract was terminated, all lies.''
