The contemporary Nigerian music industry has a host of players and actors who might not be familiar to the average man on the street but have played a key role in laying some of the building blocks that have gone towards the industry’s growth. Godwin Tom is one of those actors. Tom through his iManage Africa company currently manages the likes of Show Dem Camp, Beverly Naya, Wande Coal, Lola Rae and Ice Prince. Before this, his claim to fame stems from managing M.I. Abaga during his break out before subsequently managing Wizkid.
To mark the commemoration of his 10 year anniversary in the music business, Tom is embarking on a year long campaign with the goal of “creating platforms that inform, educate and create opportunities for African talents and creative entrepreneurs and businesses.” The 10 Years A Learner campaign will kick off today with a live podcast episode with M.I. Abaga at the Silverbird Galleria, the scene of the duo’s first meeting. To attend, RSVP here
