Akon signs Wizkid To Konvict Music Label

Akon announced via his Twitter page earlier today that Nigerian artist, Wizkid is now officially part of the KONVICT label worldwide.  Read Akon’s tweet below

Banky W, who is also the chairman of EME label, confirmed the news explaining that “the Konvict contract is to run alongside the popstar’s original EME contract. The length of the deal is not specified. ”The paperwork which was signed this week is a Joint venture- partnership between EME and Konvict and will produce and release Wizkid worldwide. ‘Press conferences will still be held in Nigeria and the US in the near future.’ In addition, ‘EME will now act as Konvict’s official rep in Africa and will run the African arm of the label’s operations. This includes standard offices, management, studios, production, A&R and provision of more artistes to launch under this partnership.

‘Wiz is the first act to be launched under this agreement, but provision has been made for EME and will continue  to build acts that achieve enough buzz to also launch on the same platforms’, Banky added. Wizkid, a superstar in his own right released his debut work ‘Super Star’ in 2011 which produced the hit songs ‘Holla at your boy’ and ‘Don’t Dull’ which was remixed by Akon back in October 2011.

This can only mean better things to come for Wizkid. We wish him all the best

      One other thing I would like to mention is that in lieu of tnyirg to match all your online degree programs on days of the week that you finish work (since most people are worn out when they go back home), try to receive most of your instructional classes on the saturdays and sundays and only 1 or 2 courses in weekdays, even if it means taking some time off your weekend. This pays off because on the saturdays and sundays, you will be more rested plus concentrated on school work. Thanks a lot for the different tips I have figured out from your website.
