The masterful production of ‘Ameno Amapiano (Remix)’ is a perfect combination of a house-driven bop, Amapiano vibes and gospel-evoking backing vocals. The Ghanaian-Atlanta-based hitmaker is a one-stop destination for immense record production, vocals, songwriting, and composing. Now armed with the new long-term deal with Sony, the world will get to experience more of Nektunez’s genius.

We are very proud and very excited to have agreed on a long term working relationship with Ghanaian born and US-based producer artist NEKTUNEZ!! His infectious productions combine Afrobeats with modern electronic elements, which make his music attractive to a global audience. We are looking forward to breaking the first African born producer artist on a global level! “ said Sony, executive president of A&R – Wolfgang Boss.
