Talented Nigerian, singer, songwriter, DJ, producer and video director Samuel Oguachuba, popularly known as Samklef, has signed a multi-record deal with Akon‘s KonLive Records.
The ace music producer turned singer Samklef has signed a multi-deal with Akon’s KonLive Distribution and KES Entertainment Records, a joint venture partnership with KonLive, En-Treeg and Simcol Entertainment. Simon Guobadia is the chairman/CEO of Simcol Entertainment. The purpose of the partnership is to advance the careers of African and Caribbean talent.
“ Samklef was signed to KonLive because he is the best all-around entertainer from Nigeria,” said Akon who tops the 2017 list of richest African musicians according to Forbes Africa and known for launching the careers of superstars Lady Gaga and T-Pain. “Everything Samklef touches turns to gold and I expect his first single, “Philo” to quickly climb the charts once it is released in 2017.”
He’s what Samklef said about the deal “Life on the Nigerian streets amidst the harsh survival conditions of the typical African ghetto made me business savvy and a realist,” said Samklef. “The opportunity to be part of Akon’s camp and learn from the greatest in the music and business world is an honor.”
