Akon signs Wizkid, 2face, Psquare to Konvict Music
Speculation had been going around for a while now but just yesterday Saturday, December 17, 2011 Senegalese-American singer Akon revealed that he has signed Nigerian pop acts Wizkid, 2face, and twin duo Psquare to his Konvict Music label.
Akon revealed this to pressmen at Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha’s CLUB 10 where the unveiling of energy drink Citron took place. Akon is a brand ambassador for the drink.
It can be recalled that the singer had featured on a remix of Wizkid’s ‘Don’t dull’ and was seen with 2face back in June in Atlanta, Georgia.
Akon shared the news on twitter. In Nigeria with my brothers about to take over Africa with @2faceidibia and @wizkidayo big up to P-square
Faze was reportedly signed to Akon's Konvict few years ago and met akon in Ghana at a meeting where Akon publicly announced him as his new artiste but later denied the fact that they signed any deal.
Details of the deals are still sketchy as the Grammy Award winning act didn’t go into details but made it known that the signing had been done earlier.
