Nigerian music act,Skales lands 200 million naira record deal



   Good times are here for Nigerian artiste,Skales.First a record label, then a couple of chart topping singles,then along came a new record label, a new car and he's preparing to drop his debut album in November 2014.

What can we say?Skales has begun living the dream.Here is the story of his new mouth watering record deal with Baseline Records.
The first advantage of his deal is the fact that despite being signed on to Baseline, led by industry veterans Howie T and Dipo Abdul, Skales gets to still maintain control and leadership of his own label OHK records. 
Do you know his Baseline record deal is worth nearly N200m. An industry source revealed the terms of the deal,ensuring the artiste gets a brand new car, a house, cash advance, and upkeep allowance, all totalling about N200m.
It's the most expensive recording deal in the industry, and a huge surprise, considering the hard times labels and marketers are facing, and the flight of investment from labels.
The label did not confirm the figures, with Howie,one of the people in charge of the record label saying 'I cannot give you any specific figure because we don't want other artistes to start running to us, however what I can tell you is that the deal is worth hundreds of millions. It includes his new car, new house and total lifestyle package. We are changing his whole lifestyle'

'Skales will be at the NEA awards in New York at the end of the month, after that he's going to London for a concert, and then to Canada on a tour, [then] he'll drop his album in November. So you see it's a total package, we don't want to create any form of distraction by revealing any figures, but trust me it's a huge deal, it's about the biggest deal in the industry at the moment.'

Big up,Skales,every dog sure has his day and this is just the 'Baseline'..I meant the beginning.
