signs a worldwide distribution and promotion deal with The Black Star Line while safeguarding all his copyrights and royalties.
"I feel honored that Coptic and The Black Star Line were so interested in working with me. I have featured on 2 volumes of the Rising Stars of GH series produced by Coptic with records like 'I am the best' and 'Money', I'm guessing I made a good impression. I am thrilled and looking forward to collaborating with a label in the US because I feel my music has a global appeal and should cross borders, and Coptic is definitely 'The Guy' who has the experience and network to make it happen. I am glad that we were able to come to a mutual agreement.”
Coptic stressed that even though Joel will keep making records for his Ghanaian fans, he will be making different records for the US that are more suitable to what those fans are used to hearing.
ommented on the agreement saying it’s the “Best thing to happen since powdered Fufu”
