Akon signs Olamide to Konvict Music

American singer/songwriter and entrepreneur, Akon, has announced the signing of Nigerian indigenous rapper, Olamide, to Konvict Music Worldwide.

The Senegalese-born superstar announced this during an interview on the Breakfast Club where he said he and Olamide had already begun working together.

The surprise signing comes after Akon stated that Nigerian music artistes don’t honour record deals.

According to him, what is done in Nigeria is just a gentleman’s agreement with no papers signed.

He also revealed that he once signed Wizkid and Davido, but due to the way Nigerian artiste honour deals, nothing much could be gotten out of their agreement.

Meanwhile, the revelation by Akon is yet to be confirmed by Olamide who has his own record label named YBNL Records.

It remains to be seen how the Oil and Gas singer manages both ends.
