Superstar American rapper, Jay-Z’s management group, Roc Nations Sports has signed highly rated Nigerian youngster, Samuel Chukwueze.
The deal is yet another testament to the great strides taken by Nigerians across two of the nation’s most loved trades, sports and entertainment.
With Beyonce’s Lionking: #TheGift Album having a strong Nigerian presence after Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, Mr. Eazi, Yemi Alade and Burna Boy all enjoyed rave reviews for their features, the globally-acclaimed songstress’ husband and her partner in stardom, Jay Z has spotted the future in a young player, considered one of the brightest spots of a new generation of Nigerian and African footballers.
The Villareal winger’s consistently spectacular performances for the Yellow Submarines in the 2018/2019 season have not gone unnoticed, expectedly, with a better package for his career, always looking to come in a short time. Anyone who saw Chukwueze take Real Madrid and Barcelona defences to the cleaners in successive games will definitely keep an eye on him.
The Roc Nations Sports have Manchester United attacker, Romelu Lukaku, Borussia Dortmund’s Axel Witsel, boxer, Andre Ward and LA Clippers’ Angel Delgado on its list, however, its latest entrant, Chukwueze may spark the biggest excitement yet, amongst the lot.

Chukwueze’s Roc Nations Sports inclusion must have stemmed out of the envisioning that goes into his gentle and steady rise into an internationally marketable product.
While the Diamond Academy product may need much more spectacles at the highest level to cement his name on the minds of people for a longer period of time, he is taking the right steps and the last, but far from the least, may be truly the rock he deserves to stand upon.
