RCA Records confirm Wizkid’s multi-album worldwide deal signing

Mar 01, 2017 |

Nigerian singer/songwriter WizKid has found a new home, as reported by BillBoard. As previously heard on Drake’s Hot 100-topping hit “One Dance” (which he co-wrote and co-produced), the Afrobeats star 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.”

RCA Records chairman and CEO Peter Edge added: “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.”
