According to Independent.co.uk, the Ghanaian-British twin brothers come on board with a wealth of music industry experience behind them.
Alex Boateng joins the venture after 10 years at Universal Music UK, where he recently headed up Island Records’ first Urban Division, leading campaigns for artists including Drake, Dizzee Rascal, The Weeknd and Nicky Minaj.
Alec Boateng, on the other hand, spent the past seven years at Warner Music, and was previously the co-head of A&R at Atlantic.
He is also a seasoned radio presenter, hosting BBC 1Xtra’s breakfast show for several years as well as specialist shows that promoted new British music.
A report by nme.com indicates that the new label marks a significant partnership with Def Jam, which has played a huge role in shaping the popularity of hip-hop across the globe for 35 years.
In another interesting report by YEN.com.gh, Nhyira Agyei Osei, a gentleman who graduated from the University of Ghana with first-class has become a chartered accountant.
In a one-on-one chat with YEN.com.gh's Edward Asare, Nhyira confirms he graduated from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ghana without stepping in class for two years.
After completing his national service, Nhyira studied for the Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICA) exams by himself while working full time and has successfully become an associate member within two years.
Meanwhile, 19-year-old Ghanaian celebrity TikToker, Jackline Mensah, has gotten back her lost account which had a following of millions of people.
A quick search conducted by YEN.com.gh shows that, after days of showing zero followers and getting all her videos wiped out completely, everything has been sent back to exactly how it was.
It is not particularly clear what circumstances led to the restoration but it is thought that TikTok discovered that there must have been a mishap and fixed it.
