After some time away from the music scene, singer and producer, Samuel Oguachuba popularly known as Samklef has released a new music video titled “Philo”.
“Philo” is Samklef’s first single since being signed onto Akon’s Record Label some weeks back.
The song showcases the singer’s musical dexterity and versatility as well as his ability to make hit records on demand.

He earned international notoriety and success after producing 6 songs on Wizkid’s hit album “Superstar” which was released in 2011.
Some months back during some of his travels to the USA, he caught the attention of mega superstar, Akon with his years of experience professionalism and talent. Akon then signed him to Konlive Distribution and KES Entertainment Record Label, a joint venture partnership with Konlive, En-Treeg and Simcel Entertainment.
With this, Samklef has joined the number of Nigerian artistes like Wizkid, Dbanj, Tiwa Savage, Davido and Tekno who are doing Nigeria proud musically outside the shores of the country and have inked deals with international recording companies.
