Few months after signing two talented Nigerian rtistes; Wizkid and Psquare duo, American hip-hop star, Akon is set to sign another Nigerian artiste named Olawale Samuel Ojo otherwise known as Wazzyno.
This piece of information was made known by Glittaz Record, the artiste’s record label.
According to Mr Bolaji St. Daniel Mattew, CEO of Glittaz Record, the deal is to see Convict Music taking over the artiste’s promotion on the international scene while his record label takes over Africa.
The CEO who is currently in United Kingdom is expected to seal up the deal before returning to Nigeria in April.
There are claims that the two parties began the deal talks sometime last year after meeting at a party in Ghana.
Wazzyno formerly known as Don Soulja hogged the limelight with the hit single ‘Tutu’ featuring Terry G and Zee World. And based on its high demand, the budding artiste recently did a remix of the song featuring Terry G, Skally Mental and Zee World. The musical video is also gaining ample airplay on national airwaves.
Meanwhile, â€˜Lewo,â€™ a new single from the artiste is also gaining more acceptance than expected in the clubs and on national radio stations.
Speaking about his fast-rising career, the Ilesha-Obokun, Osun State born artiste said his dream is to produce song that will stand the test of time. “My dream is to produce an evergreen song that will last for eternity. That is why I’ve modeled my career after the likes of great musician such as Akon, R-Kelly and Michael Jackson who are icons today. I’m seriously working hard to make that happen and may God help me out,” he prayed.
