Just last week, Davido had also announced the signing of indigenous rapper Idowest, expanding a label that already houses the likes of Davido himself, Mayorkun, Dremo, Peruzzi and Yonda, while hinting that he might also be adding a female artist soon.
Sauce Kid, whose real name is Babalola Falemi was recently released from a United States prison after serving two years for aggravated identity theft.
The rapper first came to reckoning with his breakout single, Omoge released in 2005, which featured legendary artist, Mike Okri.
Sauce Kid was to go on and enjoy a spell in the music scene following his return to the country delivering hit records like Yebariba, E don dey mad, Under G and Carolina.
His debut album, African American was released in 2010, followed by his Industreet in 2015 alongside his mixtapes, Money Long (2007) and Da Ripoff in 2011, but the gifted rapper has seen his career take a downturn with his alleged involvement in criminal activities carried out in the United States.
However, a source close to the artist informed us that following his return to social media, Sauce Kid had sent a Direct message (DM) to Davido, and it is believed that a discussion had taken place leading to a verbal agreement, which is now in place for the rapper to put pen to paper with the label.
