MUSIC: Dotman, DJ Tough sign management deal with Labo Entertainment
Dotman and DJ Tough, two budding music stars, have signed a new deal with Labo Entertainment, a record label.
The record label broke the news in a recent statement. Labo Entertainment, run by Olabisi Akanbi, has worked with artistes like Konga, Sideone, Ecoman, and Smapee.
Dotman, whose hit ‘Akube’ continues to do numbers, came to the limelight in 2015 with ‘Yes Melo’ and ‘Fine Girl’.
The singer-rapper, who has been in the music business for over six years, has collaborated with top acts like Davido, 9ice, Mr Eazi, DJ Spinall, DJ Exclusive, DJ Kaywise and DJ Moh Green.
He has performed in various events which include those staged in the UK, Africa, Europe, and the US.
His latest releases ‘Enu Gbe‘ and ‘Feelings’ have also done numbers on social media and terrestrial platforms. Dotman’s new management deal comes ahead of his debut album titled ‘Hakuna Matata’ which will be released before the year runs out.
On his part, DJ Tough has also performed at so many high-standard shows both at home and in the diaspora.
Speaking on why Labo Entertainment signed the duo, Akanbi said: “We are excited to align ourselves with a very talented and creative artiste like Dotman who is one of the hottest young musicians in Nigeria.
“With the benefit of my experience in the game, I’m excited that we will make a big impact this time around.
“That’s what I want to achieve with the young and talented singer, Dotman. He has a hunger to go global and that’s something we both share in common.”
Commenting on his forthcoming debut album, Dotman said: “I’ve worked and waited a long time for this time to come. To say that I am happy is putting it mildly.
“Everything is aligning to make the release of my first album a success coming from my days as a rookie singer in University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG).
“With God and Labo Group behind me, I’m excited to hold my first baby in my hands and share this with world.”
