Nigeria's Sammie Okposo Signs Historic Deal With US Record Label Tate Music Group

Sammie Okposo, Nigeria’s gospel recording artist, takes Nigerian gospel music stateside with his inking of a music record label deal with Oklahoma’s Tate Music Group (TMG) Records. LadybrilleNigeria confirmed the signed deal with TMG late last week.

The artist in a release to the press explains the label will reveal on August 15, 2011 details of the record deal to the media and why they signed him to TMG. As part of the signing, according to Okposo’s camp, TMG plans to release Okposo’s new album, ‘The Statement,’ to the international market. The album will be re-produced by Kevin Bond, a ten time Grammy Award Winner, without losing Okposo’s Nigerian authenticity. Talks are also currently ongoing with management of several American gospel artists for collaborations with Okposo on some tracks on the album. Artists include Chevelle Franklyn, Mary Mary, Israel Houghton, Kirk Franklin and Deitrick Haddon.

“The deal to release my album internationally and find it in every music store across the world is a welcome development but it doesn’t mean my previous albums were not sold outside Nigeria. Just that it was on a small scale. We believe the new deal will open more doors and boost our image internationally. It is long overdue”, said Okposo about signing the historic deal.

LadybrilleNigeria.com congratulates Sammie Okposo in signing the gospel deal. Okposo joins Nigeria’s D’Banj in inking a deal with reputable labels. Last month, D’Banj signed a music deal with Kanye West’s GOOD Music Label.
