UK-Based entertainment marketer and promoter, Soslimm Entertainment, has signed on the duo of young, talented Lewes Goon Boi and Beejay Smallz for a two-year recording deal.
Speaking at the signing ceremony in Lagos, last week, the CEO of Soslimm Entertainment, Mr. Olumide Fadayo, said the two acts are bunch of talent that should be marketed and promoted.
He noted that he listened to the acts’ songs and was carried away by the quality and wondered why they had not been discovered before now.
According to him, “we have a lot to offer the Nigerian entertainment industry. We are not going to be just a record label owner versus artistes, but a family.”
Fadayo stated that the recording company would attend to issues of accommodation and mobility that will enhance their productivity. According to him, the two-year contract would cover digital sales, recording, marketing, merchandise, performances, endorsement among others, adding that the two musicians are by law, representatives of the company. He disclosed that the sharing ratio of their earnings during the period would be 60-40 to company and act respectively.
“Soslimm was established in London in 2009 to promote African music and culture. It has keen interest in hardworking youths and ready to turn the face of entertainment industry,” he added.
Soslimm Manager, Mr. Omonije Samuel Ayomide, said the signing ceremony has been a happy moment for the family, saying he will do his best to perform his obligation as manager, as well as make the new acts come under A1label.
