Empire Mates Entertainment has signed a major deal with Akon’s Konvict
Music to release and produce Wizkid’s album worldwide.
The Banky W led record label today
announced that paperwork has been signed and that there is now a confirmed
joint partnership between EME and Konvict music.

Although Wiz is the first beneficiary of the
arrangement, the deal also makes provision for EME to launch any of its
follow up acts on the same platform

According to Banky W who’s the chairman of EME “*EME is now Konvicts’s
official rep in Africa and will run the African arm of Konvict’s operation
including offices, management, studios, A&R, production and provisions of
more artistes to launch under this partnership” *
He continues *”Wiz is the first act to be launched under this agreement,
but EME will continue to build acts that achieve enough buzz to also launch
on the same platform”*

Since debuting in 2008, Empire Mates Entertainment has revolutionized a
fast rising industry by crafting songs that people identify with using
creative ways to market and monetize their brands; while working to build
and expose local talents.

The label is currently putting finishing touches to a much anticipated EME
album *’Empire state of mind* as well as a major tour of the US and UK.

An excited Akon twitted ‘*Its official, Konvict/ EME is now the official
label for Wiz Kid worldwide. Wow! Hope you ready?*’
