After the singer left the label, he convinced the label that the next artiste the label could bank on was Lace. The Benin Republic never knew he would become a star suddenly. But Danku with his personal effort made him a star. Lace under Danku leadership, released 'Se Bi Wo'. This was the cynosure of all eyes in the entertainment industry.
