List Of Top 5 Nigerian Artists, Musicians Signed By Sony Music
Wizkid, born Ayo Balogun, joined the squad of Nigerian artistes under Sony Music’s management a couple of years ago. He was signed by RCA Records (a subsidiary label of Sony Music) some time in 2017. The deal is rumoured to be worth 7 figures, in dollars.
Davido signed a so-called “two-album” deal with Sony Music in 2016. The deal will see the music group handle the distribution of Davido’s next two albums. According to unconfirmed reports, the deal is worth millions of dollars.
Nigerian music legend, D’Banj, is one of the first set of Nigerian artistes to join Sony Music. D’Banj signed a record deal with Sony Music six years ago, in 2012. He was signed as part of a partnership deal with his record label, DB Records.
Tekno, who recently launched his own record label, is one of the top Nigerian music artistes under Sony Music. He put pen paper some time in January 2017, in a deal worth around $4 million. Although not much is known about the details of the deal, it is surely a big achievement for the young singer.
