On Sunday, 15th May 2022, the African arm of the leading music distribution company and independent label, EMPIRE celebrated African excellence with their inaugural intimate series of spring events. Themed #EMPIREsundown, it was an incredible night to remember with DSP partners, media and key stakeholders in attendance to mark the official introduction of EMPIRE’s Africa roster and the company’s achievements since it launched operations in Africa in 2020.
Held at Black Pepper located in Pearl Towers B, Eko Atlantic City in Lagos, and themed ‘Made In Africa’, the event brimmed with good vibes and featured industry insiders/ VIPs, key stakeholders, and EMPIRE Africa’s artistes including Olamide, Fireboy DML, Bad Boy Timz, Kenny Ogungbe, Dayo Adeneye -D1, Dremo and Taooma. In richly displayed African fashion brands, this gathering of entertainment giants was full of glitz and glamour, bringing together industry heavyweights and well-wishers to celebrate with EMPIRE.
At its peak, the intimate mixer went up a notch with a toast at sunset by the EMPIRE executives, including Ghazi Shami (CEO), Nima Etminan (COO), Tina Davis (SVP, A&R), Bolaji Kareem (Regional Head for West Africa), and Ezegozie Eze (VP, Strategy & Market Development — Africa & Diaspora). The Empire Sundown Lagos is proudly sponsored by Hennessy.
Enjoy the fun moments from the event!
