SKOLARY: CEO, Gra Gra Records
“As Ghana entertainment industry gains the attention of Africa and the world at large with the likes of Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Samini, Mzvee, Shatta Wale and the likes, it’s imperative that we contribute our quota in aiding budding talents – as well as established talents in reaching the climax of their career.” Ebodili Chijiokwu Simeon, the Chief Executive Officer of Gra Gra Records & Entertainment made this statement to selected entertainment writers in Accra while unveiling his plans to invest into the already booming entertainment industry.
Ebodili who’s popularly known in the entertainment circles as Skolary also made known his plan to sign three established artists to give other record labels a run for their money, as he’s set to redefine how high valued artists are to be treated and nurtured into a world class status. He also reaffirm that part of his record label goals is to reduce the rate at which artists with raw talents are neglected.
“At Gra Gra Records, we are determined to fine tune and position them as a high valued talent, same way Wizkid, John Legend, Becca and the likes were spotted and nurtured by BankyW, Kanye West, Kiki Banson and the likes, respectively.” In their effort to test the waters and strategically position itself in the pool of sharks already in the industry,
Gra Gra Records & Entertainment has – in the last six months – teamed up with King Jay Entertainment in promoting SwagKid, one of Ghana’s promising up and coming artist.
“We also want Ghanaians to know that aside bringing healthy competition on board in artistes’ promotion, we are also delving into events management as to encourage excellent delivery in all spheres of event,” he noted.
