Hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa has signed a new publishing deal with Sony/ATV for the world outside North America. The deal covers his entire songwriting catalogue and future work.

Says Afrika Bambaataa himself: “I am excited to team up with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and look forward to the future of many more spectacular, creative, mind blowing, positive events to happen from being with a company like this”.

He went on: “With so many great artists they already represent throughout the world, I will be following the greatness of many Motown groups that Sony/ATV looks after as well as the great Sly And The Family Stone, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Temptations, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Michael Jackson and many more. Respect to all the hard workers and staff at Sony/ATV Music Publishing and let’s rejoice and give the world more peace, unity, love and having fun in music and dance”.

He does seem genuinely excited, doesn’t he? Almost thrilled. Sony/ATV Catalogue A&R Yasmin Lajoie added: “It’s such an honour to welcome Bam to the Sony/ATV family. We are looking forward to working with him, not only helping preserve his legacy by introducing his songs to a new generation of music lovers, but also setting up collaborations and assisting Bam with exciting new creative projects”.

I’m so happy that everyone is so happy.
