Label owner Mushe said was first impressed by their music before deciding to sign them.
“The group approached me at the right time. We set down, I listened to their music and I was very impressed. I see a lot of potential in them and I am honoured to have my record label associated with such complementary talent” said Mushe.
Songs such as City Life, California featuring Mushe, Push Up and Madam are playing on radio stations like Omulunga, Energy and Fresh Fm. And NBC and One Africa play their music video for their track called Money.
“Our next album will be called Speechless and is expected to drop early September and next month we will drop a single called Move featuring Mushe. Our plan is to go international on this album with M-records,” said Fancy.
