Canadian Afrobeats/Hip Hop artist R.O.Z (Ross Nyantakiy) has signed a label licensing and distribution deal with Sony Music West Africa on behalf of EMB Inc. (Entertainment Money Business), the label founded by R.O.Z and his brothers in 2010. This comes on the heels of the artist/songwriter’s hit single and video, “Nothing New” Ft. Nigel Knight, produced by Tom French. The brothers have made EMB a thriving entertainment company with multiple artists, producers, and DJs on its roster.

The deal is the first of its kind for Sony Music West Africa with a North American Independent record label. With roots in Ghana, the Sony Music deal was a fit following the success of R.O.Z’s chart-topping single ‘Talking To Me’ which reached number 8 on Apple Music’s Top 100 Charts in Ghana. Always in creative mode, R.O.Z began to mix different styles of music. It began with his first album “Z International,” a mix of Hip-Hop/Afrobeats, and R&B. R.O.Z captured the music world’s attention.

“Nothing New” is proof that R.O.Z has secured a place in the music industry. The hit single, “Nothing New” is a blend of new school style and classic Hip-Hop. From music videos to performing on stage, R.O.Z gives his fans what they want every time. Having garnered much respect from fellow artists, it’s no surprise R.O.Z has performed with some of the best such as NAS, J Cole, French Montana, Big Sean, Fabolous, Pusha T, PARTYNEXTDOOR.

The talented Artist performed recently at the halftime show for a sold-out Winnipeg Sea Bears CEBL game at the Canada Life Centre and opened for Afrobeat Superstar Davido's "Timeless Tour" at the Budweiser Stage. The group is currently working on an album set to be released in 2024. R.O.Z continues to evolve and his star continues to rise.

“Nothing New" is available on all music platforms.
