Nigerian rap queen, Bukola Folayan, popularly known as BOUQUI, has been signed by One of America’s leading recording labels and home to many US top gospel artistes, Xist Music USA. This came a few months after she recorded ‘Celebrate’ with Grammy nominee Da T.R.U.T.H who is also signed to Xist.
Xist Music can boast of gospel acts like DA T.R.U.T.H, The Ambassador, Jahaziel, Sean Simmonds, Yaves and N.F. BOUQUI is now part of the great team as the first female and first African on the label.
Sources say it’s a bumper package for BOUQUI as the deal includes international recordings with all Xist Music artistes and other relevant artistes in the world, and an intensive distribution of BOUQUI’s album and materials in the USA and the UK.
That’s not all; the deal will also see BOUQUI become President of Xist Africa, in a new partnership with her recording label outfit “Bouqui’s Place Entertainment”, and a way of joining forces with Xist Music USA to expand the scope of the business in Nigeria and Africa.
An excited BOUQUI described the deal as “another milestone reached in the history of the Nigerian music industry and hoped that the deal will throw more doors open in the Gospel hip hop scene internationally with Xist Music Africa setting up in Nigeria.”
