Through her social media pages, Mdee made the revelation over the weekend saying she was excited to be the first artiste to land such a deal in Africa.
Kama ilivyo ada tunaanza kwa kumshukuru Mungu kwa baraka zake na kibali chake cha kutufikisha siku njema ya leo . Nimeona nitumie fursa hii wapendwa mashabiki zangu mwanzoni mwa mwaka huu nilipitia changamoto nyingi sana, lakini kwa neema za Mungu nilitoka mahali pale na sio kuona baraka tu bali na maajabu mengi yaliyotokea kwenye maisha yangu. Ikiwemo kuwa mmoja wa familia ya Universal music group in a unique signing joint between #Universalmusicgermany #airforce1 #Universalmusicgroup”.
(I will begin by thanking God for his blessings that has brought us this far, Let me take this opportrunity to say that in the beginning of the year I passed through many challenges but through God’s grace I pulled through and emerged victorious and blessed with one of the blessings being joining the Universal Music Group in a unique signing joint between Universal Music group Germany ,Airforce 1 and Universal Music group) Mdee wrote.
Na hii ni mara ya kwanza kwa msanii wa Afrika kupata dili la aina hii yenye mkwanja mrefu sanaaaa. Hii ni habari njema kwa mashabiki zangu na ndio kwanza tumeanza mambo makubwa zaidi yanakuja. Kumbuka kila mwisho wa Jumapili ndio mwanzo wa Jumatatu usiogope kuanza upya”.
(It is the first time for an artiste from Africa to land such a deal with this amount of cash .This is good news to you my fans and greater things are on the way.Remember every end of a Sunday is the beginning of a Monday.) Mdee added.
