My life, the past few months, has been nothing short of crazy!!! Nevertheless, I remain blessed and it is still all good.
So, check this out folks. I HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING the works of my AML Interns Ms. Udeme Uwan and Ms. Ollachi Holman. I find myself spending Monday through Thursday reviewing, fact checking, editing etc. their works to make sure they bring you all the BEST! So my Friday is really MINE. Lol! Indeed, I hope you all are enjoying their contributions to AML. I encourage you to reach out to them on their twitter handles, facebook and also comment on their posts to encourage them. These are your future entertainment lawyers so be nice to them, now. 🙂
Alright, today is my day. I want to wish you all a fantastic Friday and leave you with the inspiring story of Efe Omoregbe, one of the most respected music executive and manager in Nigeria’s entertainment industry.
Interviewed by Nkiru Asika’s Enterprise Creative, who is also making it happen on all levels, Omoregbe shares his journey: how it all started, how success really began when he took music as a business, not just passion and more. I like his discussions on having to self educate (both intellectually and hands on) to gain the basic competency he needed to do the job. He also gives, in real terms, a historic overview of Nigeria’s music industry when the large Western labels exited the country.
It’s real talk. It’s interesting and inspiring.
AML people, industry, YOU ALL KEEP PUSHING. For every AML creative i.e. music/fashion/film and of course legal entrepreneurs out there, I salute you. I see you. PUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUSH! It only gets better.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND CATCH YOU ALL SOON, WITH OUR ROCKING INTERNS BUT OF COURSE!
