I am so excited about this news and it honestly could not have happened to a more deserving guy! The singer has been travelling back and forth to the United States over the past few months after dropping his fantastic new single ‘Into The Wild’ writing and recording new music and it’s caught the attention of Mr. Epic himself – LA Reid.

LA heard the track soon after it launched here in South Africa and instantly caught his attention and after months of negotiating, the label head officially signed him onto Epic Records. Epic is home to the likes of Ciara, Fifth Harmony, Avril Lavigne, The Fray, Nicole Scherzinger and local group The Kongos.

Connell signed a four album deal in person with LA recently and the news is finally out. Again, I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving than this awesome friend of mine! May he keep on winning! Check out a clip of him announcing the news below.
