We are used to seeing Nigerian artistes metamorphose from being just music creatives to becoming label execs and entertainment entrepreneurs. Quite a number have thrived in the business, running successful labels, breaking out young talents to household names. Also a couple others have failed at it, but one things for sure, that won’t deter more from towing the path.
One artiste who is joining the list of artiste cum label owner is afrobeats artiste, Maleek Berry.
Berry set up his independent imprint Berry’s Room a while back, while still signed to Atlantic Records UK, with only him as an artiste on the roaster. But the talented singer and producer is ready to sign artistes to his imprint this year 2020.
He revealed this motive on twitter, on a reply to a twitter user, @pellyvibes who obviously an upcoming artistes quizzed the “Been Calling” crooner on reasons why he doesn’t sign artistes before beckoning on Maleek Berry to offer opportunities to the upcomers. Maleek Berry replied, “Launching Berry’s Room properly this year. Holdtight”.
Maleek Berry has come a long way from being the mastermind behind the boards on big hits, to being the face on big stages wrecking microphones, it would be a pleasure of many to see the music business side of the talented creative.
