Wizkid has signed a multi-album worldwide deal with RCA Records/Sony Music International.
“It’s hard for me to describe what I do, since I work with rhythms from Afro-Beat, reggae, hip-hop, dance hall and others,” Wizkid told Billboard in a statement. “What’s important to me is for music to be real, authentic, raw and timeless. I don’t wanna be boxed in to any one genre.”
This deal comes in a few weeks after Tekno signed a deal with Sony earlier this year.
“We are thrilled to welcome Wizkid to the RCA Records family. He has become a superstar in the African music scene and will be a game-changer in bringing African music to the world. We are extremely excited to have him as a part of RCA and are eager for the journey ahead.” RCA Records chairman and CEO Peter Edge added
Wizkid who has just released his new single ‘Sweet Love’ has joined a list of fellow African artistes to get an international deal following suit the likes of Davido and Tekno.
