She has a mix tape titled ‘Bella the EP’ to her credit and is set to add more to it by getting signed to the label. “With the success we have made with Ycee, we see the need at this period to put out more talents; we are dynamic and can absorb artistes of different genres who make good music. We feel this is the right time to do that because we believe our newly signed artistes will bring a lot of accolades to the label and give Nigerians more good music” Mr. Arokodare concluded.
