“They [Universal] have made us a very good offer which we think we should take,” explains Ike Otoo Arhin, Manager for the group. ”This is our 10 years anniversary and the album release should be huge. If we release it independently, it would not go as far as we want it. Ghana music has to go further.”
Universal will handle marketing, promotion and distribution of the album new by the duo.
They become the third Ghanaian act to be signed by the world’s biggest music company after Cina Soul and Stonebwoy.
