He may not have claimed a clean sweep this year, but as reported by billboard.com, Machel Montano and Universal Music France affiliate AZ have signed a licensing/publishing contract on the 27th of March. Mr Montano will also be co-managed by the company’s management arm, the Olympia Agency. Agents Marie Audigier and Jean Michel Gibert, will manage Mr Montano in the Europe and French West Indies regions.
Machel Montano’s 2012 hit and winning Groovy Soca song Mr Fete, drew the attentions of Marie Audigier, who brought his music to AZ managing director Julien Creuzard. Creuzard was , reportedly, equally impressed with the 38 year old Soca Star’s music.
The first track from the AZ deal is said to be a remake of Mr Fete, featuring local artist Matt Houston, an R&B singer.
