But due to some constraints, we are unveiling these two acts for now — Jimoh Wasiu, a songwriter and record producer, and Ejiro popularly known in Warri as Ejaiz to the world.”
“We are thrilled to welcome them to Daffang Entertainment family. They have all it takes to develop and become superstars in the African music scene, and will be game-changers in dominating and bringing African music to the world. We are extremely excited to have them as a part of the team and eager for the journey ahead,” he added.
For Wasiu, an Ajegunle based act, Daffeng Entertainment has everything an artiste want to progress, particularly good management. “I believe with the management structure and style in place at the outfit I can go anywhere with them.”
Asked what he is bringing to the industry, he said, “I’m bringing good songs,” stressing that the songs that currently pervade the industry are not appealing but appalling. “So I’m bringing into the industry good melodies,” he stated.
On his part, Warri based singer, Ejaiz explained that his joining of Daffang Entertainment is based on the premise that everything is being done in a family-like way.“At Daffang Entertainment, we do things together like a family; we work together, and that is what prompted me to join them. I believe with the company, we will push the further the frontiers of afrobeat to the world,” he said.Buttressing the point, Ibrahim explained that there is an evolution in the music industry, stressing that we all grew up listening to good music, but globally there is a change.
“We all grew up listening to good sounds but some of those artistes that churned out those good sound are no longer giving us such sounds. As a talent management company, what we do is to have an artiste that would last over long period of time. A number of people started with 2Face Idibia but they are no longer relevant in the industry,” stated.
