Joeboy Floats New Record Label In Partnership With Warner Music

Renowned Afrobeats artist Joseph Akinfenwa-Donus, also referred to as Joeboy, has achieved a noteworthy milestone in his remarkable five-year career by inking a dual contract with Warner Music, a global music powerhouse that represents notable artists such as Ed Sheeran, Cardi B, Burna Boy, and Ckay.

Under the terms of the dual deal Joeboy will become the next African flagship artist for Warner Music in addition to starting his own entertainment outfit, Young Legend.

This move sees Joeboy exit Empawa after 5 successful years where he released 2 EPs (Love & Light and Body, Soul & Spirit) , 2 albums (Somewhere Between Beauty & Magic and Body & Soul) and a plethora of hit singles & features amassing over 2 Billion streams across major DSPs.

Under the new Young Legend label, Joeboy will act as the CEO while Deola Jaiyesimi will serve as the Head of label with the task of churning out the next set of Afrobeats superstars on a global stage.

As he transforms his own musical stature from a continental superstar to a worldwide behemoth, Joeboy is following in the footsteps of superstars like Olamide, Don Jazzy, and his previous label boss, Mr. Eazi, by using his social currency and commercial savvy to throw light on this generation.
