Konvict Muzik is a record label founded by Melvin Brown and R&B singer Akon.[1] Other than Akon, popular artists such as T-Pain, Ya Boy, Kat DeLuna, American Yard and French Montana have signed in the past or are still present on the label. At the beginning of most Konvict Muzik artists' songs there is the sound of the clank of a jail cell, followed by Akon uttering "Konvict". Akon started his own label after the success of his debut album. T-Pain released three albums under the label, two of them achieving gold status.[citation needed] Akon recently[when?] signed a deal with Columbia Records and Epic Records for new artists signed to Konvict.[citation needed]

Akon recently[when?] signed Nigerian artistes: P-Square, Tuface, and Wizkid as representatives of his record label Konvict Muzik in Africa. He revealed this in December 2011 in Lagos at the unveiling of Citron energy drink, which took place in footballer Jay Jay Okocha's club Number 10.[2]
