MTN Hitmaker 6 contestant, Bright Owusu Anti, known in showbiz circles as B-ryt, has signed a three-year deal with American based Ghanaian record label, Brilla Squad Entertainment.

Country rep of Brilla Squad Entertainment group, Zakaria Owusu Frimpong said after years of investing in musicians from around the world, the label, set up by three young men; Akwesi Frimpong, Eric Frimpong and Bright Asante thought it necessary to invest and support a Ghanaian artiste and the mantle fell on B-ryt.
“We selected B-ryt out of the lot because of his versatility, dedication, persistence and hard work. He has a lot of potential to fly the flag of Ghana high o then international stage and with the backing we are ready to provide, he’s in for great projects.
“We urge Ghanaians to support and watch out for B-ryt because he is a staunch proponent of Highlife and that is necessary since our new folks are doing foreign genres and killing what we have,” he said.
The new deal will see Brilla Squad Entertainment handle the distribution and sales of B-ryt’s works and also see to his personal welfare.
To prove that he was up for the new task, B.ryt used the occasion to entertain guests with renditions of songs from highlife legends like Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba and Nana Acheampong.

“I just don’t do Highlife but soul, Afropop, Lover’s Rock and Hiplife and that versatility is my strength. I learnt a lot as a contestant on MTN Hitmaker and the grooming and lessons should be a guide,” he said.
