The General, in his speech, said that he was highly honoured to have been invited to officiate as the Guest of Honour.
He admonished the management of MMMY Music to be cautious of pitfalls inherent in music business.
He cautioned, “My advice is that you cultivate a good and professional relationship with the team of people such as lawyers, business managers, publicists, sponsors, photographers, social media and others, whom you have to work with, to succeed in the industry.”
Baron Chymoni in an exclusive interview with E24-7 Magazine said, “MMMY Music goes beyond your typical label as it works closely with a major US/UK based record label.
“There is also in the making, dedicated singles by the Artists that are to be released on 29 August as a remembrance of the day when the Statute of the Nelson ‘Tata’ Rolihlahla Madiba Mandela was unveiled in the City of London alongside the statues of other important figures associated with the fight for freedom.
We plan to churn out fresh and unique materials that will leave listeners in awe. The Music Videos of the Artistes’ respective singles as well as their group video will be released on 6 August 2016.”
He added, “It’s in our power to empower more youths. In view of that, by this time next year, we would be unveiling another set of artistes. That would not be easy but we know that with the bunch of people around us, it shall be okay.”
