Tema-based duo, R2Bees have announced the postponement of their new album “Site 15” after signing a new deal with the Universal Music Group.
Omar Sterling (Pae Dae) shared the news on social media site, Twitter saying “We’ve just finalized a deal with Universal for our Album SITE 15, this has caused the album to be pushed back a few weeks.. We are sorry for the delay…”.
“They [Universal] have made us a very good offer which we think we should take. This is our 10 years anniversary and the album release should be huge. If we release it independently, it would not go as far as we want it. Ghana music has to go further”, Ike Otoo Arhin, manager for the group, explained further.
The terms of the contract are however unavailable as it is unknown if it also constitutes a management deal or just for distribution purposes.
The duo becomes the third Ghanaian act to be signed by the one of the world’s biggest music company after Cina Soul and Stonebwoy.
