R2Bees ink deal with Universal Music, third Ghanaian artistes ever to do so!
It seems like they have been around for an eternity, ten years to be precise, but SITE 15 is actually their third studio project. The iconic duo just made the album bigger by inking a deal with Universal Music. The deal will see SITE 15 reach a much bigger audience especially outside Ghana. Thus it is not surprising the release date for the album has been shifted back. Universal probably want to do some hyping of their own for their latest artistes.
“They [Universal] have made us a very good offer which we think we should take,” explains Ike Otoo Arhin, Manager for the group. ”This is our 10 years anniversary and the album release should be huge. If we release it independently, it would not go as far as we want it. Ghana music has to go further.”

R2Bees easily rank among the top music acts in Ghana, those who have been active for a decade or more and amongst the current crop as well, they have put in a lot of effort and you cannot fault their dedication. Hard work does eventually pay.
