He claimed that, despite writing to Sony to terminate his publishing contract, his request was denied because Efe is a stumbling block. It appears that Efe’s signature or consent is required for that to happen. He wrote,
“Efe is the epitome of a heartless human being! I’ve been stuck in the worst sonymusicpub deal for 6 years because of him! You will NEVER STOP WHAT GOD HAS ORDAINED FOR ME! You have done absolutely NOTHING for my career but try and take everything away from me and my family! I unknowingly got signed to an archaic MDRC deal because of this man. He never gave us the right to choose an attorney to thoroughly inspect the contract in 2016 because his friend/partner in crime was the attorney that we were FORCED to work with on the deal and now he doesn’t want to let me free! As of late last year, SonyATV said they were going to let me go only if he agrees with terms of termination #FREESHIZZI enough is enough! I will drag your name to the mud with the TRUTH! You can’t get away with this! #FreeShizzi #ShortmanDevil”.
