Hip-hop sensation Nicki Minaj is expanding her empire with the launch of her own record label. On a recent episode of her “Queen Radio” podcast, the 40-year-old announced the exciting news, expressing her belief in loyalty and her desire to help undiscovered talent shine.
While the official name of the label has not yet been disclosed, Minaj revealed that she has already signed several artists, including Nana Fofie, Tate Kobang, Rico Danna, and London Hill. Fofie, a Dutch-Ghanaian artist known for her YouTube mashups, joined Minaj on “Queen Radio” to celebrate the announcement.
During the episode, Minaj praised Fofie’s singing voice as “effortless” and spoke highly of her rising star. With the launch of her record label, Minaj aims to find and develop the next big superstar and provide them with a platform to showcase their talent.
Nana Fofie, whose real name is Nana Yaa Fofie, gained popularity for her mash-up covers of hit songs like “Mad Over You” by Runtown and “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran. Her unique style of blending Afrobeats, reggae, and R&B has earned her a loyal following on social media.
Fans of Nana Fofie have expressed their excitement over the news, with many saying that it is a major milestone for African music. The signing of Nana Fofie to Nicki Minaj’s label is seen as a recognition of the talent and potential of African artists, particularly those who are making waves on social media.
This is not the first time Nicki Minaj has shown interest in African music. In 2017, she collaborated with Nigerian artist, Wizkid, on the hit song “Baba Nla (Final Remix)”. The song was a massive success, with fans in Africa and around the world embracing the collaboration.
The signing of Nana Fofie is expected to further boost the popularity of African music on the global stage. It is also a testament to the growing influence of African artists in the music industry.
This move is not surprising given Minaj’s long history of supporting and promoting other artists. As a pioneer in the hip-hop industry, Minaj has always been vocal about the importance of uplifting new talent and supporting the music community.
Fans of Minaj and these rising artists can look forward to seeing what new music and talent will emerge from this exciting new venture.
