Nigeria: Sammie Okposo Invades Africa With New Album

Few weeks after the release of his fifth studio album, the management of multiple awards winning singer and Globacom ambassador, Sammie Okposo is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that the singer's album is well distributed across African countries.

This is aside the international deal signed with Oklahoma based record company, TMG Records to distribute the singer's album across America, Europe and Asian countries.

Okposo's album which is being distributed in Nigeria by Tjoe distributions is moving units as we scooped the singer has been smiling to the bank ever since its release. The management of Zamar Entertainment, Okposo's record label is however partnering with a variety of distributors across different countries in Africa.

Currently, the album is being distributed in Ghana by Vineyard Productions who we gathered is one of Ghanaians most respected distributors. The deals with other distributors from Kenya, South-Africa, Cameroon and few other African countries are also in their last stages.

The album is made up of 15 tracks to kick start The Statement Series. Other tracks on the album will be on The Statement Series 2 and 3 albums. The management of the artiste said the decision to reduce the number of tracks on the album is to enable the fans of the artiste to listen, enjoy and digest the music.

The buzz created by Okposo's album release concert especially via the new media, radio stations, TV stations and cinemas made it one of the most anticipated albums of 2012.

Okposo who put pen to paper with Oklahoma based TMG (Tate Music Group) Records last year as the first black artiste on the label says the album is a must have by all music lovers.
