Lynx Entertainment all stars namely Richie, Asem, Eazzy & OJ Blaq has been signed on to the Rockstar 4000 Music Entertainment. Another Ghanaian also signed on the African continent's first Pan African 360 Music & Entertainment Company and Record Label is Samini, the Pan African Superstar and Multiple Awards Winning Afro Reggae artist.

The deal will see these young stars from Accra, Ghana in an historic, exclusive worldwide digital distribution deal, having their music made available commercially to a global audience of millions.

The deal with Rockstar 4000 begins this month with a song by the Ghanaian artists featuring on the highly anticipated 'Hello Afrika�album released by Sony Music. The album hit the shelves on May 31st, and is an accessibly-priced, double-disc that provides a platform for close to 40 artists from across the African continent and the Diaspora to express their passion and support for the first FIFA World Cup staged on African soil.

The song 'Africa's Moment' is a superb multi-artist collaboration performed by Richie, Asem, Zigi, Eazzy and OJ Blaq. The recording by the all star line-up leads a call across the continent and around the world inspiring millions of fans to rise up in support of Ghana's highly rated national football team, the Black Stars.

Jandre Louw, the CEO & Founder of Rockstar 4000 said “With Rockstar 4000 recently signing up Richie, Asem, Zigi, Eazzy and OJ Blaq to our family we are very excited by the individual talent and the collaboration on the “Africa's Moment” song truly speaks to the inspirations behind the world's greatest game of football and underlines the potential and talent vested in these stars of music from West Africa. The potential of the shores their music can reach is a hugely exciting prospect”.

Over the last few years Samini has grown immensely in his music and he's one of the best live performers on the continent today, as evident by his array of international awards including MTV Africa Music Awards, MOBO, multiple Ghana Music Awards and International Reggae and World Music Awards. This new partnership will see Samini fans around the world now for the first time truly having instant access to his music on demand”.
