Samklef will be releasing a new single under KonLive Record Label.

The Nigerian producer and singer was signed by the African-American pop singer, entrepreneur and label executive, Akon.

This follows the 'Lonely' crooner's signing of Nigerian cinematographer and video director Patrick Elis earlier in the year.

"Samklef was signed to KonLive because he is the best all-around entertainer from Nigeria," said Akon who tops the 2017 list of richest African musicians according to Forbes Africa.

"Everything Samklef touches turns to gold and I expect his first single, “Philo” to quickly climb the charts once it is released in 2017" Akon said in an interview.

"Life on the Nigerian streets amidst the harsh survival conditions of the typical African ghetto made me business savvy and a realist," 

"The opportunity to be part of Akon's camp and learn from the greatest in the music and business world is an honor" Samklef revealed.

Samklef has worked with a range of Nigerian artists contributing significantly to Wizkid's debut album "Superstar". He has also worked with other acts like Skales, Durella, Ice Prince and Olamide.

Samklef who has two albums, a debut titled ''Noni'' (2010) and "Nonilising" - an International edition (2011).
