The past few years have seen various African artists signing multi-million dollar deals with various record labels across the US and Europe. The list is endless from Kanye signing D’Banji, Akon linking up with P-Square, Wiz Kid and 2face and also Xtatic from Kenya signing to Sony. This are just a few examples, but the list is endless. I don’t wanna seem like a hater but until I knew all the fine print in those contracts I thought it was always a good look to sign to a major. Now, I know better. Maybe one day I’ll talk in depth about the subject.
One of the African artists who signed to a major is Nigerian Peter Ibrahim “Parker” Ighile who’s currently signed to Nicki Minaj’s label. He’s no stranger within the London urban music circle as half of the British production duo Parker and James. His production credits include Nicki Minaj feat Parker- Hell Yeah, Rihanna- “What Now”, Jessie J- Do it Like a Dude, Angel- Wonderful, Chip- Oopsie Daisy.

I was skeptical at first but after a few listens, I can attest that hopefully Parker will rise and become one of the best in this crowded field. “So beautiful” is a catchy banger which is simple put slowly grows on ya.
