Veteran Nigerian Hip-Hop artiste, Gilbert Bani, popularly known as A-Q, has part ways with Chocolate City to start a new journey. The God’s Engineering star A-Q is starting up a music incubator for African artists in a strategic joint-venture partnership with Africa’s largest music distribution platform, Africori Music Group.
In the next 18 months, A-Q will be working together with Africori to discover and funding artistes’ careers across Sub-Saharan Africa.
“I had a wholesome experience at Chocolate City, and I’m happy to have been part of the label’s journey to profitability”, A-Q says.
“I’m even more excited about my new business venture with Africori; I’m very passionate about discovering and nurturing talent. We are confident that the music incubator is what African artistes need right now. We all know access to funds is very limited for young acts across the continent’, A-Q adds.
Founder and CEO of Africori, Yoel Kenan says “I am very excited to be partnering with A-Q on discovering and nurturing a new wave of talented and soon to be very successful artists from the continent”.
Thank you Chocolate City for the opportunity to build something great. This next phase with Africori will not be easy but walking in purpose makes it worth the while. I’m always looking for new talents to work with (hit me up) 👉🏾https://t.co/oDuiVfGYy1 pic.twitter.com/qtr2kk078I
