It’s not a tired down deal.” The ‘Ojuelegba’ hitmaker recently signed a 7-figure deal with Sony Music, American label and company owned by Sony through Sony Entertainment. The company will handle distribution of his works in the United States of America, a deal likely to benefit to the acts signed to his label
