Sam has also being co–signed by several industry heavyweights such as AQ, MI Abaga, Paybac Iboro and PayperCorleone to name a few.
MY TURN is the first official single off Sam’s forthcoming album.

The chorus has a unique feel as the delivery is accentuated by back-up singers making it sound like a choir.
