Rapper Sarkodie could join the likes of DJ Khaled, Kanye West, Rihanna, Vic Mensa, Willow Smith, Meek Mill, Shakira, T.I, Big Sean, Angie Martinez and J. Cole at Jay Z’s Roc Nation label should talks with the label’s executive Briant ‘Bee-High’ Biggs go through successfully.
Biggs, who is also Jay Z’s cousin, revealed in an interview with US celebrity blogger, Makho Ndlovu, that he is ‘already talking’ to the 31-year-old rapper.
When asked about his next move after signing Nigeria’s Tiwa Savage, Biggs said “We are going country by country. I’m already talking to Sarkodie in Ghana to do something with him.”
He added “I got something in Gambia, Gabon and Senegal. We have it all spread out. Even in South Africa, I am grabbing one artist out of there.”
According to Biggs, his decision to collaborate with African artistes was influenced by the need to distribute contents properly in the United States.
“To give them proper distribution in the States and make sure that they are getting proper publishing dollars and royalties. So by using our platform that we already built, we are giving them access to everything we have at our office to help them do the same. Build their brands and their companies like we did ours,” he said.
Roc Nation was founded in 2008 and has offices in New York City, London and Los Angeles.
It houses a record label, talent agency, touring and concert production company, music, film, and television production company as well as a music publishing house.
