American independent rights management and publishing company Kobalt has signed Omah Lay to a worldwide publishing deal.
This administration agreement consists of global synch and creative services for his catalog and his future songs.
Founded in 2000, Kobalt provides royalty income and activity to artists, allowing them to manage their rights and royalties directly. Omah Lay joins fellow Nigerian musicians Burna Boy and Mr Eazi who are already on the roster.
“From the minute I first heard Omah’s music, I was completely blown away. His hard work, great music, and star power have continued to expand, and Dominique, myself and the rest of the team can’t wait to roll up our sleeves and work on being his proactive publishing partner“, said Melissa Emert-Hutner, VP, Creative, Kobalt.
“I am very pleased that Omah has chosen to join Kobalt for his publishing,” said Dominique Keegan, VP, Creative, Kobalt. “Omah’s music, lyrics, and artistry prove he is one of the strongest voices in the afro-fusion and global music scenes. We are extremely proud to have him join our family.”
This is what Omah Lay’s manager, Valentine Ngaji, had to say about the deal:
“Omah is special, and special talents like him require special attention. Therefore, we can’t think of a better administrator to take care of his masterpieces than Kobalt. They are big fans of his works, and we are certain they are in good hands.”
