Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, producer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist, Akon, is one of the world’s most influential voices in music. Today, Akon and his team announced the partnership between his record label, Konvict Kulture, and NJ based distributor, Vydia, who offers labels, managers, and artists the infrastructure and technology to power their business. Empowering the team at Konvict Kulture, the Vydia team will provide the technology and label services to Konvict Kulture’s future roster as well as current developing artists he has signed to the label (Young Flock, Teemanay, AMIRROR).
“Vydia is ahead of the game when it comes to music distribution. They continue to develop their technology to match the needs of independent labels, managers, & artists, and I am excited to partner with them for the relaunch of my label Konvict Kulture” – AKON
The official partnership with Vydia is a long time coming as the two have partnered on several projects in the past – most recently, the distribution of Akon’s mixtape, Ain’t No Peace.
“Not only is Akon an incredible artist and thought leader in the industry, he has proven his commitment to his label and his community and we are looking forward to continue to empower all of his initiatives through his own music and through Konvict Kulture” says Vydia co-founder/CEO, Roy LaManna
