On Saturday he took to Twitter and wrote: ‘I always dreamed of having my own label, having an imprint never really worked for me because I still had to have someone else’s blessing to sign people.
‘People I believed in massively but unfortunately didn’t fit the traditional pop role hence never doing the deals….
