Veteran Industry Executive Greg “Uncle G” Lyons continues expanding the Uncle G Records roster with Gospel artist Niyoki inking a deal to release her third studio album. Niyoki is excited to be on board with the Uncle G Records team, which previously announced Alexis Spight as the first recording artist to join the label.
“I laugh when my little sis Alexis Spight calls me the ‘Genesis’ in her Kirk Franklin impersonation voice, but she is oh so accurate,” said Niyoki. “Uncle G and I have major history. I was the first gospel act that he managed. He has gone on to do some amazing things while I took a much needed break from the industry to reset some matters in my personal life. We are now full circle and have found each other again. God’s timing is perfect, and I couldn’t be more pleased!Lyons is excited to add Niyoki to the Uncle G Records roster and recalls the days they hit the road promoting Niyoki’s music jumpstarting her Gospel music career.
“It’s good to be re-united with Niyoki who was my very first Gospel project that I worked,” said Lyons. “Her first solo gospel project had huge success, and her single “He’s Here” remained at the top 5 of Billboard Gospel Charts for months. I got her video to be the first Christian/Inspirational video played on MTV. We hit the road running in a RV wrapped with her photos, which made an impact and got us noticed by the Gospel community. Uncle G Records looks forward to launching Niyoki’s new music with that same momentum and continuing building her brand. Be on the lookout for her new single to hit radio sometime in October.”
