Nigeria music label, Empire Mates Entertainment, has announced the launch of its highly anticipated all-star album titled ‘Empire Mates State of Mind.’
The 22 track LP boasts of some of Nigeria’s finest artists such as Banky W, Wizkid, and Skales.
EME’s first lady, Niyola, also featured in the compilation album which the label’s CEO, Banky W, described as “the hottest and best music” to their teeming fans.
“We consider it a privilege for us to do this for our fans and we’ve worked with some of the finest artists, DJs, producers, directors in Nigeria and beyond on this album,” said Banky W during a media event in Lagos, on Friday.
The album also features guest appearances from award winning Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth; Shaydee; Ghana based rapper, XO Senavoe; US based singer, Rotimi; and a host of others.
