A NEW Jersey-based record label, Shanachie Entertainment has signed Nigerian-born Afrobeats hit-maker, Rayce, who has not only scored such hits as “Roll,” “WetinDey,” “Jack Sparrow” and “21 Love”, but also, has collaborated with major Afrobeats stars as Davido and D’banj.
As a singer, producer and songwriter, Rayce brings triple-threat talent to his productions. Under a deal made with Rayce’s Nigerian label, Jebon International, Shanachie will be releasing Rayce’s debut US single soon with a full album to follow.
“Afrobeats is the most exciting new music we’ve heard in a while,” says Shanachie General Manager, Randall Grass. “Rayce is a superstar who has already proven that he can make hits. We think he is an ideally talented artist to introduce this music to America. Because we have a history with African music, Caribbean music and RnB, as well as working with such great artistes as Angie Stone, Fela, Bunny Wailer, Dave Hollister and many more, we feel we are ideally positioned to break this music in the States.
“Rayce is one of the best quality and multi-talented Nigerian Afrobeats artists,” comments Jebon Records International General Manager “Ebony Black.” I have great expertise in cross-over music. I believe Rayce will make a big wave in America when he is promoted properly. I am very happy for you and on behalf of our team here we appreciate Shanachie Entertainment U.S.A for this wonderful opportunity.”
