Published

on

Coelle LDN presents Accra’s first Artist Development Bootcamp for musicians and creatives aged 16 to 35. Each attendee will be able to learn key information and industry secrets from top industry celebrity moguls during the month-long Bootcamp event, as well as gain new opportunities to succeed! with an exclusive opportunity to co-write a song with a Ghanaian top artist in a filmed studio session, a 6-12-month management contract, radio spins and interview slots on the prestigious radio station YFM, an extensive PR package, Boomplay playlisting, and much more.

In addition to personalized hands-on training and unique networking opportunities, Class of 40: Bootcamp will offer virtual classes that will allow artists and creatives from Ghana, Africa, and the United Kingdom to advance their careers! The month-long Bootcamp will begin with a launch party on July 29th, 2022, and will include 1-hour classes covering all key industry pillars such as management, press/PR, legal, radio/DJ, image & style, and producer & artist access from Monday – Friday at iSpace Foundation in Accra, Ghana, beginning August 1st.

Coco Arya, the founder of Class of 40: Bootcamp, recognized a market gap while working in the Ghanaian and UK music industries. ‘’ This gap is artist development, creating something that would directly help the artists with knowledge that they would have to battle the elements and finances to obtain while also giving them hope through the opportunity to create a song with a well-known Ghanaian artist, a 6-month management/project management contract, a 3-month PR deal for the song created, playlisting push, radio play, and interview time. Most labels and investors expect the musician to already have the full package, but there are generations of artists who, if given the knowledge and opportunity, would be as well. This, in turn, causes a ripple effect, allowing the Ghanaian music scene to thrive”.

Coelle LDN, founded in 2019, has carved out a niche in the music industry with services such as Artist Management, Press & PR, Music event curation, and Artist Development in the UK and Ghana.

Press and media are invited to attend the initiative’s launch on July 29, 2022. Be on the lookout for more announcements!

“Until His VGMA Plaque Got Missing, I Didn’t Know Ras Kuuku” : Joe Mettle

Published

on

Despite the perceived popularity of reggae-dancehall artist Ras Kuuku in Ghana, gospel artist Joe Mettle has revealed that he never knew him.

According to him, he only got an idea of whom Ras Kuuku was after news broke about his missing Vodafone Ghana Music Awards plaque in 2020.

In a conversation with Andy Dosty, Joe Mettle who won the VGMA Artist of the year award in 2017, stated that he never knew Ras Kuuku and wouldn’t have known him if his plaque had not reportedly gone missing.

“I didn’t know Ras Kuuku until his award got missing.”

Ras Kuuku’s plaque going missing was big news considering the fact that it was the first time such news was being reported.

Subsequently, it was found.

Since then, Ras Kuuku and Joe Mettle have been having a back and forth. When Joe Mettle was nominated for the Reggae-Dancehall category for the previous VGMAs, Ras Kuuku went mad.

He stated that the gospel artist did not qualify to be in such a category. In response, Joe Mettle had said that Ras Kuuku would get over it after a while.

“if he were also nominated, they would do the same to him, so it’s a regular thing, and I wouldn’t expect less.

“The point is, no matter who appears in the category, there have been years where people are said not to deserve to be in a particular category; every year, it does come up, so I don’t feel like this is new in terms of how some people feel.”

Why Pete Davidson Decided To Appear On Season 2 Of ‘The Kardashians’

Published

on

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian, 41, and Pete Davidson, 28, are completely head over heels for each other. Possibly one of the biggest moves they could make aside from moving in together, which they have discussed, or getting hitched, is appearing on Hulu’s The Kardashians together. According to an insider close to the Kardashian family, the latter will happen in the show’s second season. “In the end, Pete knows that this level of exposure for his career cannot be bad. He controls the narrative in this instance, and he is only showing a loving side of himself that is authentic. He felt like, after all the mention of him in Season 1, he can’t just ghost out and always be this entity,” a source EXCLUSIVELY shared with HollywoodLife. “He is having fun doing this with her and they all know it is only going to make fans that much more interested in watching. It is a win-win situation.” They added that “Kim was absolutely on board with Pete agreeing” to be on the show. 

The source also noted that Pete chose to be on the show and did not feel pressured to sign up, and a second insider close to the couple echoed the same sentiment. “Kim would never force Pete to do anything he doesn’t want to do. She took the same stance with Kanye [West] because she knew he didn’t want any part of being on the show,” they divulged to HL EXCLUSIVELY. “Being on the show was something Kim discussed with Pete but she never tried to persuade him or put any pressure on him at all. She really left that decision completely up to Pete.” The source also said Pete’s agreement to appear on The Kardashians was not a “decision he took lightly,” as he understands “putting your relationship out there in such a public way leaves it open for even more scrutiny.”

In April, a source close to the KarJenners confirmed Kim wanted her beau to be on the show, but wasn’t going to force anything on Pete. “Kim knows that Pete is not fully on board with appearing in season two and she also knows what people are saying about it to him,” the insider revealed to HollywoodLife. “Kim is leaving this decision up to Pete and continues to take the same stance on this; she’s not going to try and persuade him either way.”

Netflix Lays Off An Additional 300 Employees In New Round Of Job Cuts

Published

on

Popular video streaming platform, Netflix has once again shown the exit door to an additional 300 employees in the second round of layoffs

According to Variety, the cuts are across multiple business functions in the company, with the bulk of the jobs lost in the US.

The cuts amounted to about 4% of the streaming giant’s workforce with US employees affected the most. This came after the company cut 150 jobs last month.

“While we continue to invest significantly in the business, we made these adjustments so that our costs are growing in line with our slower revenue growth,” Netflix said in a statement.

Back in February, Netflix said it had lost 200,000 subscribers globally at the start of 2022, and projected a decline of 2 million users in the upcoming quarter.

The company blamed the drop on a range of factors, including increased competition, the economy, the war in Ukraine, and the large number of people who share their accounts with non-paying households.

A spokesman for Netflix said its diverse, audience-focused channels such as Con Todo and Strong Black Lead are a priority for the company and that they are “investing heavily in them”.

“We’re committed to inclusion on-screen, behind the camera and in our workforce,” he said. “We are making changes to how we support our publishing efforts, including bringing some of this important work in-house.”

To offset subscriber losses, Netflix is also considering adding advertising to the service in return for a lower-priced subscription in addition to cutting costs, a move it had long resisted.

On Thursday, June 23, Netflix’s chief executive Ted Sarandos said the company is in talks with several companies for advertising partnerships.

Media reports from earlier this week said it was in discussions with Alphabet’s Google and Comcast’s NBCUniversal for potential marketing tie-ups.

“We’re talking to all of them right now,” Sarandos said at the Cannes Lions conference when asked which company Netflix was looking to partner with.
