Jamati Online readers are very familiar with Ameyaw Debrah. A gifted writer who has the knack of pulling the meat of the matter out of the entertainment story and bringing unknown tidbits of golden information to our attention, is on a serious roll. Eric Kwabena Matlock, a.k.a. Coptic, has appointed him to manage his businesses in Ghana and the rest of Africa. This speaks volumes to the obvious entertainment business savvy that Ameyaw possesses.
Coptic, through his Brooklyn Bridge Entertainment is currently working on a project called ‘The Black Star Line – Close To My Roots’, which basically aims to bring American rappers back to Africa, and close to their roots. The album is essentially his introduction of American/European artists to the great talent that is entrenched in the music scene in Africa. Coptic hopes to use the album as his inroad to the music scene in Africa and, with Ameyaw’s help, identify talent and work on contracts and production deals with the African artists.
Ameyaw will make sure that all of Coptic’s interests, including contracts and money, in Ghana/Africa are being handled properly. He is also in charge of getting new production work or remixes from top quality artists in Ghana and all over Africa and in all genres (not just limited to hip hop). The advantage for African artists is that they have someone on the ground with real access to one of the most significant producers in the international music industry today.
He will scout for new and up and coming talent that can be molded for Rebel Musik, Coptic’s African music production branch. He shall also monitor to ensure that song/publishing credits are listed properly on every record produced by Coptic, and coordinate all contracts between artists in Ghana/Africa and Coptic in the USA.
“In the short time that I have known Ameyaw Debrah, I know that he is someone that I can trust. I also know that he is a hardworking go-getter who will represent me very well in all aspects of my business, helping me take it to the next level”, comments Coptic.
Coptic is a producer renowned for his works with Bad Boy Entertainment and hits such as ‘I Need A Girl’ Feat Diddy, Loon & Usher, “Child Of The Ghetto” Feat G-Dep , “If I Should Die Before I Wake” Feat Notorious B.I.G, Black Rob, Ice Cube & Beanie Segal, “Living The Life” Feat Notorious B.I.G, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg & Faith Evans, among several others. His ‘The Black Star Line – Close To My Roots’ album already has a fine roster of African artists that have collaborated with several American acts with more to be added.
An excited Ameyaw stated, “I am really happy for the opportunity to work with such a great talent; not only to advance his business but also to help put Ghanaian/African artists on the international market. As someone with a huge presence on the World Wide Web, I have been doing that for a lot of Ghanaian and African artists, and I am hoping to take it a notch further with this new appointment. ”
Congratulations Ameyaw! Jamati Online is fiercely proud that one of its own is doing something significant to improve the exposure of real talent on the continent to the diaspora. We know you will do a phenomenal job.
