Kennis Music signs two US acts in two months
Popular music label, Kennis Music says it’s planning to sign a second American artiste.
The label is looking to add producer/artiste H.A.K to its’ crew, after recently signing B Howard.
Kennis Music C.E.O, Kenny Ogungbe, during an interview with our correspondent, expressed his excitement over Howard’s signing, adding that it has been in the works for a long time, but was finalised a month ago.
He further revealed that the deal is an indefinite one, and will expire when both parties agree, a strategy which, according to him, will help curb negative speculations as experienced with previous artistes. Howard B, he says, will record, produce and feature with other Kennis music acts while his deal with the label is active.
Explaining the label’s decision, he said ‘Over the years, we have promoted foreign artistes and we just thought that with our leading position in the industry, we don’t like to make noise anymore, we like our works to make the noise for us and Howard B is a big fish, a multi platinum producer in the US market.’
Ogungbe says plans are in place to bring on board American artiste, Hussain Abdullah Karim, otherwise known as H.A.K, adding that he was on the production team for Capital F.E.M.I and Joe-El’s albums.
The music label, owned by Kenny Ogungbe, has been instrumental to the success of some of Nigeria’s most remarkable pop stars, including The Remedies, Paul IK Dairo, 2face Idibia, Tony Tetuila, Eedris Abdul Kareem, Wale Thompson and presently, Goldie, Jaywon, Capital F.E.M.I, K.S.B and others.
