After months of crouching in the pipeline, the news has finally been broken that CEO of Konvict music Aliaune Damala Badara aka Akon has signed Wizkid, Tuface and Psquare to his Atlanta based music record label Konvict muzic.

Akon who is currently in Nigeria made the disclosure himself during the launching of a new energy drink he had witnessed in Lagos.

He also tweeted online “In Nigeria with my brothers about to take over Africa with @2faceidibia and @wizkidayo Big up to Psquare”

Banky W also went online to confirm the arrangement as CEO of EME records. He tweeted “But!!! last night was kind of Epic. Bigups to the EMEazzyyy + Kovict muzic runz. Shoutout to everyone that saw the evidence”

If you recall, in September this year, Vanguard had reported that Whiz kid could be in serious talks with the Lonely crooner to do a remix of his (Wiz kid) Don’t dull single.

This reporter had learnt then from a source that Whiz Kid had been performing Don’t dull live at an event in UK where incidentally the Konvict boss was also billed to perform.

Akon, this writer was told had immediately fallen in love with the song.

As expected, Wizkid had effortlessly dropped catchy lines all over this single that had eventually convinced Akon that a collaboration was essential.

After the performance, Akon had promptly walked up to Whiz Kid to announce that he would love to do a collaboration with him and that was how the deal was struck.

The remix has since hit the airwaves and got a massive reception.

2face and P square, on their paths, most likely, had walked into the deal following a very successful album launch this year that saw their respective music careers burn more intensely.

The news of the signing is the second of it’s kind following the deal struck between Kanye West’s Happy music and D’banj of the Mo’hits record in August this year.
