Nigerian-born music artist Samklef, whose real name is
Samuel Oguachuba, signed with mega superstar Akon for a multi-record
deal with KonLive Records.
“Samklef was signed to KonLive because he is the best all-around
entertainer from Nigeria,” said Akon who tops the 2017 list of richest
African musicians according to Forbes Africa and known for launching the
careers of superstars Lady Gaga and T-Pain. “Everything Samklef touches
turns to gold and I expect his first single, “Philo” to quickly climb
the charts once it is released in 2017.”
Samklef, a multi-talented music artist, producer, DJ and video
director hails from Imo State, but was born and bred in Lagos – Nigeria.
“Life on the Nigerian streets amidst the harsh survival conditions of
the typical African ghetto made me business savvy and a realist,” said
Samklef. “The opportunity to be part of Akon’s camp and learn from the
greatest in the music and business world is an honor.”
Before he took the leap of faith to leave his home country and head
to the USA, Samklef worked as a music producer, with some of the biggest
in Nigeria’s music industry including Sunny Neji, Ruggedman, Durella,
Simi, Wizkid, Skales, D’Prince, Jahdiel, Ice Prince, Olamide, and Vector
to mention a few. “I was one of the producer’s behind RCA record label
Wizkid’s path to success,” he said. Samklef produced 6 records on
Wizkid’s successful debut album, “Superstar,” that sky rocketed him to
international success.

“My team was very impressed with Samklef’s professionalism. He has
worked with Sound Factory, Flow Records, Smashers Records, Back 2 Black,
Mindfalls, Exp & i360 and S.O & U.,” said Rozina Negusei, CEO
of En-Treeg Records and Akon’s wife. “He a certified hitmaker, has great
stage presence and is a master at engaging any music-loving crowd.”
Samklef’s debut album titled, “NONI” was released in 2010 followed by
an international edition titled, “NONILIZING”, released in January
2011. He spans several years in the entertainment industry and the
outcome is vast experience, which can only be garnered by working with
some of the best hands in every field. His influences include
international producers and artists – Timbaland and Kanye West, as well
as his industry colleagues – Don Jazzy and Tuface.

During the BET Africa events for the 2017 BET Awards Week, Samklef
performed his international hit, “Molowo Noni,” to a standing-only-room
crowd at the Sayers Club in Hollywood, California.
The diverse Samklef is also an entrepreneur and motivational speaker.
“I want to inspire others to achieve their dreams,” he said. “If I can
make it out of the poorest conditions from Lagos, Nigeria, with hard
work and dedication anyone can!”
Samklef is signed by Akon’s KonLive Distribution and KES
Entertainment Record Label, a joint venture partnership with KonLive,
En-Treeg and Simcol Entertainment. Simon Guobadia is the chairman/CEO of
Simcol Entertainment. The purpose of the partnership is to advance the
careers of African and Caribbean talent.
DeMarco is managed by Rozina Negusei of En-Treeg Records in a 360 deal.
