May D claims he is not aware of his sack from Square Records

When contacted this morning following the statement released by Jude Okoye that May D is no longer an artist under Square Records; May D claimed he was not aware of the sack. His associates said they all heard about the sack on blogs and social media; that May D was not properly informed.

If this is true, then it's unfortunate!
