The new artiste, Dapo, was discovered in the last season of the music reality show, Project Fame, where Praiz served as a judge.
The award-winning R&B talent said he was not leaving X3M Records as his management company was still under X3M.
Praiz said, “Dapo is a very talented artiste. Remember, I am a product of a reality show and as such, I know a good talent when I see one.
“I am still with X3M music. This kind of arrangement is just as Eminem’s Shady Records is under Interscope. This is my label and it’s warehoused under X3M Music. My boss, Steve Babeko, has always wanted me to have my imprint and he’s very eager to see me grow. He supports my dream to grow from being just an artiste to being a businessman. I am blessed to have someone like that who wants to see you grow regardless,” he said.
Meanwhile, the new kid on the block, Dapo, is a firebrand in the afropop genre and he seems set to make a mark in the music scene.
Born Oladapo Arogundade, the young artiste had released a single, Vibe, featuring Monae. His upcoming single, Necessary, will hit the airwaves soon.
