The deal negotiated by EMPIRE Publishing & YBNL makes Fireboy the first Nigeria-based artist featured in the official FIFA 21 game soundtrack which is set for launch worldwide on the 9th of October 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Already, ‘Scatter‘ has accumulated 30+ Million streams across all streaming platforms. The song comes off his debut album, Laughter, Tears & Goosebumps.
Other Nigerians who feature on the Soundtrack are Rema with ‘Beamer‘ and ‘Location’ by Santan Dave, a British rapper of Nigerian descent. ‘Location‘ also features Grammy-nominated Nigerian superstar, Burna Boy.
Overall, it marks a great few years for African artists and ‘Afrobeats.’ A few years ago, Shaku Shaku featured as a celebration on the NBA 2K19 video game.
