Just yesterday Saturday, December 17, 2011, Senegalese-American recording artiste Akon yesterday continued the Ye trend by officially signing some of Nigeria’s most popular artistes which includes Africa’s number one duo P-SQuare, 2Face Idibia and Wizkid to his Konvict Music label. The announcement took place at Jay Jay Okocha’s night spot club 10 along with the revelation of Citron, an energy drink.
Akon also did tweet “In Nigeria with my brothers about to take over Africa with @2faceidibia and @wizkidayo big up to P-Square”

It can be recalled that the singer had featured on a remix of Wizkid’s ‘Don’t dull’ and was seen with 2face back in June in Atlanta, Georgia.
Banky also hinted at the big news as he tweeted ‘But!!!!! Last night was kinda epic. Bigups to the EMEazzyyy + Konvict Music runz. Shoutout to everyone that saw the evidence ’; adding ‘Last night was KINDA heavy… Thank u to everybody that believed in and supported what we’ve been tryna do… Na God dey do am… God bless U real good!!!’.
Details of the deals are still sketchy as the Grammy Award winning act didn’t go into details but made it known that the signing had been done earlier.
