Sony Music Africa are bringing their A-Game! After signing Tanzanian star Alikiba yesterday, the label today announced that they have singed Mobi Dixon to their House Afrika division. Although being in the industry for 16 years, the producer dropped his debut album ‘Tribal Soul’ back in 2014. The new deal will see the producer releasing his highly-anticipated sophmore album.
Spiro Damaskinos, A&R and Electronic Music Director for Sony Music Entertainment Africa said of the signing: “We are very excited to have Mobi Dixon on board, he is an excellent producer with a great vision. We believe that together we can take Mobi’s ‘tribal soul’ sound and brand to a higher level not only is South Africa but across the African continent and into the International arena.”
Mobi Dixon commented: “I am super excited to embark on this journey to the next level of my career with Sony and House Afrika. House Afrika has always been close to my heart and for over a decade has produced some of the music which has inspired me to become the producer I am today. I have recently been getting some international traction and with this relationship I believe we can grow the brand in Africa and abroad. Really looking forward to that.”
I’m excited to see what Mobi Dixon cooks up in studio. If it’s anything like his first album, we’re in for a treat!
