Wizkid Signs Mouth-watering Deal With Sony Music Enter­tainment

Six months after HKN front artiste, Davido signed a mouth-watering deal with Sony Music Enter­tainment and RCA Records, singing sensation, Wizkid has followed suit by also signing a mind blowing deal with the music giant. The deal is said to be quite big, much bigger than any African artist in­cluding that of Davido.
And why not! In recent times, the crooner has been mak­ing steady waves with his numerous collaborations with international artistes such as Drake, Sean Paul, Swiss Beatz, Chris Brown and several oth­ers, as well as headlining in­ternational shows. What this signifies for African mu­sic, Nigerian music in par­ticular, is huge progress for the music business on the continent.
Since leaving his maiden record label, Empire Management Entertainment (EME) and floating his, Star Boy, the ‘Ojuelegba’ singer has been working on drop­ping his first album under the Star Boy imprint, which he has since titled, ‘Sounds From The Other Side’. The al­bum is expected to house the many international collabo­rations he has been working on. With this new deal, Wiz­kid joins the growing list of African stars who are col­laborating with internation­al music companies to grow their music, influence, and achieve penetration into oth­er markets.
