Popular award-winning R&B talent Praiz Adejo has signed an ex-Project Fame finalist Oladapo Arogundade better known as Dapo to X3M Music.
The singer whose management company is also under X3M Music, discovered Dapo in the last season of the music reality show, Project Fame, during which he served as a judge.
Praiz, second runner-up of the first ever Project Fame West Africa, took to his Instagram account on Saturday to announce the signing of Dapo, who emerged fifth in season nine of the competition.
He wrote: “I just signed my first artiste, Congratulations @dapo_official on your signing! Right from project fame till date I always knew u had the passion, determination, hustle spirit and talent.
“Never let that change. Today I want to welcome you to my Team. Congratulations.”
Speaking on the latest development, the Headies-winning R&B singer said he is not leaving X3M Records as his management company is still under X3M.
His words: “Dapo is a very talented artiste who I discovered during the last edition of Project Fame where I was a judge. Remember I am a product of reality show 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.”
