Samba Peuzzi and Buvision
At the end of ‘22, Samba joined forces and signed to BuVision, founded by CEO Abou “Bu” Thiam, who is also from Senegal, in a joint venture with Reptyle Music, One God and G Production.
Bu Thiam is the former manager of Kanye West and Chris Brown and discovered 2x Grammy winner and pioneer of AutoTune, T-pain.
“After working with major artists like Kanye West, Jay Z and Rihanna, I felt like it was time to focus on the biggest music genre taking over the world, Afro beats. It is a honor to contribute to this genre by signing my brother Samba Peuzzi, who is also from my hometown, Senegal. And funny enough, Samba’s music, which incorporates a lot of African percussion, reminds me of my dad, Mor Thiam, who was one of the biggest drummers in the world, so this is full circle for me.” – Bu
