May7ven Signs Music Deal with Skata Records Entertainment UK – Record Label Agreements


Nigerian Entertainment Today (NET) reports  May7ven, British-Nigerian songstress, allegedly just inked a record label deal with Skata Records Entertainment (SRE). Who is SRE? I have never heard of them so I do not know. However, who they are is not per se relevant to you. What is relevant to you is, as an artist or a record label, is what you should know about record label agreements, if you will sign or have an artistsign one. Here is an excerpt from NET on May7ven.

“May7ven also disclosed to Nigerian Entertainment Today that she recently signed with a UK-based record label SRE (Skata Records Entertainement) and she is currently working on her album. ‘I’m daily writing and recording. I’ve done remixes with Wizkid, Dotstar, Iceprince, Dr. SID and others. My videos will be out by the end of September’, May7ven disclosed.” –NET
