Continuing to build up his Konvict Music brand, Akon has signed gospel rapper Mali Music to his imprint.
The new deal shows Akon's mission to expand his label into various music genres, which already include hip-hop, pop, and R&B music.
Mali Music spoke on his new opportunity with Akon and the effect of his music on his new boss.
"He's a mogul. He's done so much and it's just a blessing that he was affected and impacted by the ministry and by the songs."
Look out for Mali Music's Konvict album set to be released in the first quarter of 2012.
