Hakeem Ellis

Ghana’s entertainment industry is happy to welcome Hakeem Ellis, CEO of Sultan Group of companies into Africa’s fast developing showbiz sector. The US-based Ghanaian investor has formalized his entry by opening a fresh record label, a movie production hub and an artist promotion and event agency known as Hekell Entertainment.

The record label has already signed underground artists that they are helping to climb up to the top.

Investment in showbiz is a daring one that requires a higher dose of passion than just calculated vision to make instant income; — the lack of industrial structures to give the fraternity an assured financial return of capital investment gives it opaque overview, especially to the business collegiate.

Our entertainment industry needs cash, so bad. However, we have failed to attract serious investment that will turn the industry to good in the medium-long term.

But Hakeem Ellis has the passion and the thrive to put a long term investment portfolio into the industry. He has signed juicy endorsement deals with many bloggers and entertainment journalists in efforts to strengthen that section of the industry.

The boss of Hakell Entertainment is making sure young artists don’t just follow the dream of pursuing music but also get the necessary education.

Mr Hakeem Ellis

In a heartfelt letter to budding female artistes Chikel Baibe, who just completed her senior high exams, the CEO of Sultan Group really touched on our emotional chords, so we decided to pen this for posterity. Read his letter below and share your thoughts.

One faithful day Chikel Baibe reached out to me. She told me her story and I was so inspired by the things she had overcome, her love for God, dedication, and the will to not be derailed no matter how people talked about her and took jabs at her looks. She reminded me of myself! She made me better! So after thoughtful deliberation and love for 🇬🇭 music, I decided to establish a record label to help individuals with similar drive and talent. Please help me congratulate this beautiful and talented young lady for finishing high school. The journey is bright!! 🎼🎥🇬🇭. THE TRANSFORMATION will be witnessed by the world and her powerful talent will be appreciated… #Chikelbaibe to the Globe 🌍 #🇬🇭withyou @hakell_entertainment @zealgovernor @chikelbaibe @sultan_drinks_ghana

Kelvyn Boy Throws Fresh Shots At Stonebwoy

Published

on

Afrobeat artiste and a former signee of Stonebwoy’s Burninton Music Group(BMG) has taken to social media to throw fresh shots at the Dancehall artiste and his team.

Kelvynboy months ago got his contract with BMG terminated citing reasons of been disrespectful to his boss Stonebwoy and other team members.

Things haven’t been good between both parties after they broke up leading to the two parties throwing shades at each other at any given chance.

For sometime now, they have stopped shading each other and we thought they might have secretly handled and settled their differences behind closed doors but were making a mistake.

In new post from Kelvynboy on social media suggests he has taken a swipe at his former boss again.

In one tweet sighted on his handle, Kelvin asked, “Your chairman be smart ?”. This some followers believe is a clear punch to Dancehall artiste Stonebwoy.

See screenshot below:

That didn’t end there as Kelvynboy in another tweet stated that they are still wondering how he is succeeding when they all thought he was going to crash after leaving the label.

He posted: “Niggas don’t understand why I still Dey succeed.. I’m not from this world just know that”.

His final post reads: “Follow who know road my guy”, he tweeted.
