“This deal for Amaarae is one we can truly call an accomplishment,” said Immensum Music founder Koch Okoye. “I remember watching her first video for Fluid back in 2018 and being instantly blown away by the creative merger of her unique vocal ability and visual expression. We had hoped to work with her instantly and have followed her career progression closely ever since. We’re all very happy to finally be playing on the same team.”
