The musician behind the hit single 'Omo Alhaji' just signed a deal with Sony. He joins fellow Nigerian singer, Davido on the music label. The deal will see the rapper release his first rapper’s first E.P,’ The First Wave’ released under the Sony music label.
According to General Manager, Sony Music West Africa Michael Ugwu....
“I’m extremely proud to welcome Tinny Entertainment and the amazing talent that is Ycee to the Sony Music Entertainment West Africa family. I’ve watched this team grow over the past few years and I am amazed at how they have navigated the industry to reach this stage. Ycee is the future of Hip Hop in Africa and will be front and centre of SME West Africa’s strategy as we take Africa to the World.”
The musician could not hide his excitement as he shared the news
“Great things happening, alongside Tinny Entertainment, I’m so proud to become part of the Sony Music family!!”
While the CEO Tinny entertainment, Arokodare ‘Tinny’ Timilehin, had this to say......
“We are very excited about the future for both Ycee and Tinny Entertainment. This is a stamp of approval on all the hardwork we have put in through the years and an indication of even greater things to come.”
Judging by their individual statements, I don't think it is an exclusive deal because it seems the rapper is still with Tinny entertainment. I'm guessing this is a distribution deal........which is very nice.Congrats to the musician.
