King Joseph Management Unveils New Act “DG” In #ProjectDGComeback

One of the fastest-growing talents management firms, King Joseph Management

(a division of KING JOSEPH SUCCESS WORLD, which also has a renowned media platform: Success MEDIA, Africa; a record label: LlcoolJ Entertainment World; a fashion and style: Nija Craziest Style etc under her empire umbrella), has again signed a management deal with a new talented and marketable act, DG. The name DG sounds new to some ears though, he’s definitely not new in the music industry, as he has worked with lots of great producers such as, Nelson Brown, Willz, Olumix, OJB Jezreel and Ploop.

#ProjectDGComeback is a project being spearhead by his new management to bring him back to the music industry in a new dimension. The effort (#ProjectDGComeback) was kick-started in April and his new double singles titled, Your Love and Skonto (both produced by Hanzy and co-produced by DJ Smith) are to be officially released this month.

The songs according to music analysts have been acclaimed as lyrically mind-blowing. DG, they say is a sensational, very humble and mature artist. His unique style, they say, stands him out among other fast-rising acts and has what it takes to become one of the most sought after artistes around.

The Founder and CEO of this promising outfit, Mr Adewale Joseph Olabode Udoh, who’s popularly known in the entertainment industry as King Joseph describes the Artiste “DG” as;

“one artiste who the world in a very short while will come to recognized and respect his songs, style (which is unique) and great personality. And these double hitz singles that are about to be premiered in just two weeks time from now, will force so many good music Lovers to always want to listen to on replay.”

The artiste, who originally hails from Anambra State, was born and bred in Yaba, Lagos. He presently teaches at FPARC Academy, Ikorodu. Over the years, he has released singles such as, Nancy, in 2012 (prod by Olumix), Bantina, in 2013 (produced by Willz) and In Your Eyes, also released in 2013 (prod by Nelson Brown).

No record deal? Then, you are to make it work yourself with us (Success MEDIA, Africa @Strategist_KJ / King Joseph Management @KingJoseph_1 ). Let’s help you with digital distribution deal …

What is digital music distribution?
Digital sales make up 31 percent of the $16.6 billion (£10bn) global recorded-music market. But forget record labels; you need a distributor to build relationships with retailers such as iTunes or streaming services such as Spotify. The artists here have benefitted hugely from digital distribution.

CD Baby
Since launching in 1998, this US company has paid more than $200 million (£129m) to artists. $50.55 to upload an album is reasonable, but the ambitious might chafe at the nine per cent commission on digital sales. Sales reports are downloaded as a spreadsheet, which can be unwieldy, but elsewhere the system is solid. Advice is abundant and it will sell CD and vinyl on your behalf for a simple $4 (£2.60) per unit.

Ditto Music:
Despite contradictory information, clunky design and broken links, this is a powerful service. More than a dozen bolt-on options are available,  but they are expensive. However, you can choose which shops your music will reach and this is the only service on test with a dedicated UK office.

For $8.99 (£5.15), Mondo Tunes claims to send your songs to more than 750 digital stores worldwide, using the same channel as high profile mega-artists such as Lady Gaga. It’s the cheapest option on test, but the user guide is baffling and statistics are only released in quarterly reports.

For $21.95 per month you get two free album releases per year and access to promo tools (although similar plugins are free elsewhere). The monthly fee seems high, but the detailed stats add value.

Solid but expensive – after the first year, costs rise from $34.99 to $54.99 per album – Tunecore links to stores including iTunes and to Spotify. Useful weekly trend-reports with fan locations help with tour planning.
