Emerging music sensation Burna Boy and his record label AristoKrat Records are N10m richer after selling the marketing rights to his debut album Leaving an Impact For Eternity (L.I.F.E).

According to reports, the label sold the rights to a popular Alaba music and movie marketer Uba Pacific. The marketer was initially hesitant about investing such a huge amount on a new artiste but his fears were later doused.

The album made a record sale of 40,000 units on the day of its release, and the amount paid for the rights ($62,000, its equivalent) is 'wholesome,' going by the standards of the Nigerian music market and the activities pirates - a devil which most artistes dread and haven't been able to find a solution to.
