After losing two artists Brymo and Jesse Jagz this year, record label Chocolate City just strengthened its team with the signing of Femi Anikulapo Kuti which is quite unexpected.
The record label, founded in 2005 by lawyer/entrepreneur Audu Maikori along with Paul Okeugo and Yahaya Maikori has artistes like M.I, Ice Prince, DJ Caise, Nosa, Victoria Kimani and more signed on to their management platform.
While M.I and Ice Prince are known for their rap game, 52-year-old Femi Kuti is known for his afrobeat style that follows the style of his father, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.
Chocolate City has never worked with any Afrobeat artist.
Femi tweeted about the management deal on his Twitter page.
