Davido signs first female artist, Lola Rae

Pop singer, Davido, who has been in the news this year for a lot of good reasons, has put pen to paper with Afro Singer, Lola Rae, as the first female artist in his record label, Davido Music Worldwide (DMW).

A happy Davido took to his Twitter handle to share the news.

He wrote: LOLA RAE WELCOME TO DMW!!!!! 1ST LADY!!!!— Davido (@iam_Davido)

Lola Rae will be joining Dremo, Mayorkun, Ichaba and more recently, Dammy Krane who are also signed under the imprint, DMW.

Davido, who signed a deal with Sony Music earlier this year, floated his new imprint, DMW, to cater for his personal business away from HKN Music, a label he also co-own with his cousins, B-red and Sina Rambo.
