One step at a time, Burna Boy is gradually getting the recognition he deserves as he signs a music publishing deal with Universal Music, USA.
The deal will give him the privilege to manage his songs and ensure he receives all the royalties from the back end as he is entitled to.
According to a press statement released on Wednesday, June 20 by his management team;
”Burna Boy, whose ‘Life on the Outside’ tour in the USA is still on-going, has signed a Publishing deal with Universal Music USA.
The artiste signed a music publishing deal, which will give him the privilege to manage his songs and ensure he receives all the royalties from the back end as he is entitled to.
This deal will also seek and issue licenses for Burna’s work. This is, of course, in addition to administrative duties, tracking, exploitation of copyrights, and collection of monies generated from the exploitation of those copyrights.”
Burna Boy also recently made the headlines when his song ‘Ye‘ made the search results on streaming platforms for Kanye West’s latest album which was coincidentally named after Burna Boy’s song and the feedback from those who stumbled upon his work have majorly been impressive. Well, you can’t derive less satisfaction from an Oluwa Burna’s track, can you?
