My dearest Fans and friends, they say time flies, and today seems like one of those days when one takes it in stride to announce that after a lot of contemplation, I am officially departing from Swangz Avenue!
I have made my intentions known to my record label and we have both come to an understanding that this is the best move forward.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Swangz Avenue for the knowledge and experience I have gained there. I am truly grateful for the time I have spent with the team along with the musical and professional relationships I have built. I believe both Swangz Avenue and I have enjoyed a remarkable partnership
As always I continue to work hard at my music, to give you my dearests the best I can offer and will also continue to consolidate my presence in the Industry, within Uganda and beyond. New great Music is already on the way only for you!

Through the comments many fans were skeptical on whether Irene Ntale will now make it on her own as they thought Swangz had done a lot to improve her as a brand and her music too.
In related news, Swangz Avenue also took to it facebook page to clear the air, insisting that there was no problem at all. Irene simply chose to leave and her descision was respected.
In their post:
Irene Ntale Departs Swangz
Swangz avenue and Irene Ntale have parted company by mutual consent. We would like to bring to record our thanks to Irene Ntale for the hard work, integrity and honesty she put forward during our four years of work.
All at Swangz thank Irene for her immense contribution since we signed her in March of 2013.
Her numerous awards and numerous chat topping hits in just 4 years make Irene the most successful female artist in our 9 year history. Irene asked to leave the label and we believe it is in the best interests of both parties.
Swangz wishes to make clear Irene leaves us on good terms and will always remain a much-loved, respected and significant figure at Swangz. Her legacy at Swangz and the country at large has long been guaranteed and she will always be warmly received.
We wish Irene all the best in her endeavors.
Swangz Avenue Management.
