TECH. AND CREATIVES
The music community group is for those involved in the performance, production and the business of Music. We learn the rudiments of being good stewards of our musical gifts, by examining global best practice in the way we approach the craft. We also learn the intricate balance between being artsy but also remaining profitable and engaged. We emphasise the importance of being broadminded and collaborative so that we can spread the tentacles of our influence. Those who grew up in church music often have some impressions about Music that might not necessarily hold up to actual realities. We engage in intense and frank discussions that help broaden one another’s perspective. Finally, we study how to get your music before the audience, by showing that the future is in music streaming.
Femi Jacobs is widely known as a decorated Nigerian leading actor. His role in the 2013 breakthrough romantic comedy film – The Meeting cemented his place amongst Nollywood’s better-known leading faces. It also earned him his first pan-African accolade as Best Actor in Comedy in the 2015 edition of the prestigious African Magic Viewers Choice Awards.
Femi’s film credits have since gone diverse, ranging from the hilarious TAXI DRIVER (filmed entirely in one of Nigeria’s major languages, Yoruba), to Nigeria’s first four man cast film, THE VISIT. He’s also the author of a “Rise, Cultivate The Grits For Greatness”
