Also speaking on the deal, WMG Executive VP Eastern Europe, Middle East and Africa Alfonso Perez Soto, said:

The music scene in Nigeria is so rich and diverse that it’s important that we develop bespoke entrepreneurial strategies. At the same time, we’ll keep in mind the lessons learned from other emerging markets, for instance Latin America where we successfully broke local artists globally.

We have great affinity with Chocolate City’s creative and ambitious approach and we’re excited about Warner’s role in bringing to life their vision of taking their music worldwide.

The new deal does not change Chocolate City Music’s leadership as co-founders Maikori and Paul Okeugo, along with executive VPS Jude (M.I.) Abaga and Aibee Abidoye, will continue to lead the company.
