Samkay Records is one of the leading record labels in Africa with a core competence in nurturing talents into legends. Our core values “Don’t give up on yourself” has been a propeller for grooming raw talents into legends.
Samkay Records was founded in Ibadan in 2021, by its founder and C.E.O Samson “Samkay” with the signing of its very first talent Zhips . The brand’s corporate synergy and professionalism wheeled his music career into limelight and fame with singles that broke through the shores of the continent which include; “Destination”, “Grateful”, “Call On Me” and “Omo Tena”. Zhips had numerous prestigious award nominations and wins under his belt during his time with the label.
As a record label with a passion to create a positive impact on society, we harness opportunities for talents with high potential to exhibit their prowess. This led to the signing of the other artiste: Olamikesh, who have all departed the label. Our value-driven policies and focus on youth empowerment through music, gave room to our recent signing Olamikesh, a young talented and versatile artiste with obvious potential. The label will continue to push into new frontiers and create music that will stand the test of time with Olamikesh and more artists to come.
