During a recent interview with Kieno Kammies on Cape Talk, the 24-year-old muso revealed that he has signed a record deal with Warner Music Group's Elektra France.
“There were a lot of international record labels that wanted to take care of my career for me going forward. I chose Elektra France because they understand the music that I’m doing.
