Kuami Eugene has announced he is joining a new record label, Empire – an American music company that launched operations in Africa early this year.
On Twitter, the young Ghanaian singer revealed that he had joined Empire, which is currently home to globally renowned African artiste colleagues, Asake, Black Sherif, Fire Boy, Kizz Daniel, and label mate KiDi.
Empire is an American distribution company and Record label, with its headquarters in San Francisco.
Kuami Eugene, who until now was solely signed to Lynx Entertainment, is one of Ghana’s most successful young artists. He was recently congratulated by Ckay for the role he played in the latter’s ‘Love Wantiti Remix’, which won an award in the pop category at the BMI LONDON Awards 2022.
The announcement comes two days after Kuami Eugene hinted in a now-deleted tweet that several attempts to stay at Lynx Entertainment – the Richie Mensah-led record label that broke him out – have proven futile.
It’s unclear if his move to Empire is a confirmation of the outcry in his deleted tweet, but it appears this new feat is a label collaboration between Lynx Entertainment and Empire.
The singer is currently touring New Zealand and other neighbouring countries and appears to have a new EP in the works.
