Ayomileyi Hanniel Solomon, an Afropop singer better known as Reekado Banks, has launched his own record label.
The 25-year-old artiste made the announcement in an Instagram post on Sunday.
“Growing forward, Banks Music,” he wrote as the caption of the video unveiling the label.
The singer also said a creative agency known as Probot will be his new management company.
The ‘Katapot’ singer on Friday announced that he would be leaving Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records, five years after the label discovered him.
“Joining the @mavinrecords family was the best thing to have happened to me in the last decade. @donjazzy took me in and treated me like his own son. I’ll be eternally grateful to him for sacrifices he made towards the growth of my career,” he wrote in his exit note.
“Thank you all for all the times you’ve lifted me at my lowest moments, for the support, the amazing hits and most especially, the LOVE. Taking this bold step and moving on from Mavin Records onto bigger opportunities is something that, though not easy, is absolutely necessary because of my growth.
“I am very ecstatic about what the future holds and I cannot wait to share with everyone what new opportunities have come. Long Live Mavin Records.”
Banks began his career in 2008 and became a part of the Mavin family in 2014.
He won the Headies next rated award in 2015 and was the eighth Nigerian to become verified on Instagram.
