Universal Music Africa, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, and Youssou N’Dour through the company “Youssou N’Dour & TBI Publishing S.A.” are pleased to announce the conclusion of an exclusive partnership agreement.
An emblematic figure of the Senegalese musical landscape, Youssou N’Dour’s global career has made him one of the most famous voices in Africa.
When asked about his collaboration with Universal Music Africa, Youssou N’Dour said, “From Africa to the World… Let’s go Universal…”.
Regarding the partnership between Youssou N’Dour and Universal Music Africa, Universal Music Africa managing director Franck Kacou said: “It is an honor, a great pride for Universal Music Africa to have the confidence of this monument of African music. Youssou N’Dour has crossed several eras, each time with an impressive relevance and timeless songs. His signature is a strong symbol of the dimension we have taken as an artists’ house these past couple of years, and I am convinced that Youssou N’Dour’s next releases with UMA will complete his already long list of international successes, at the service of the continent.”
The partnership between the great artist that is Youssou N’Dour and the number 1 in the world music industry has a nice surprise for us with the release of a new album on November the 12th 2021.
