Sony Music Entertainment signed Pan Africa Deal with D'banj

Global recording company Sony Music
Entertainment is proud to announce
the signing of Nigerian megastar
D'Banj to its RCA Africa label. The
breakthrough deal also includes a
multi-album, worldwide exclusive
contract with emerging Nigerian singer-
songwriter star Kayswitch and a
strategic partnership with D'Banj's
Nigerian record label DB Records, who's
catalog includes artists and producers
such as J.Sol, Jay Sleek and DeeVee.
Sony Music's RCA Records label hosts a
family of global superstar artists and a
catalog of music, which includes some
of the most important recordings in
history. The signing landmarks a
historic moment, which sees Africa's
number one superstar artist D'Banj join
Africa's number one music and
entertainment company Sony Music.
"Partnering with D'Banj is a seminal
event for us at Sony Music
Entertainment Africa. We've always
admired his talent and to be able to
assist with bringing D'Banj's music to
millions of fans, established and new,
across the continent is an honour for
us.
There are still so many to whom an
artist like D'Banj has so much to offer
that we can see a brand new era
emanating from this phase in his
career. We are very excited about
being a part of it. " Says Managing
Director of Sony Music Entertainment
Sean Watson.
"Partnering with the leading music
company in Africa is a natural fit for me
and DB Records to ensure my music
can be available to my fans across
every corner of Africa and in countries
where they've never been able to
access my music in a legitimate way,
instantly as its released anywhere else
in the world.
It's a new era for Africa, the birthplace
of music and I'm excited about this
very powerful partnership with Sony
Music through which we will give birth
together to a new era with endless
opportunities for my fans, producers,
artists and the start of a new time for a
revolution in music from Africa. Nothing
is impossible!" says D'Banj
