Published

on

Music industry icon, Anderson Obiagwu AKA Big A, explores another side of his multi-layered personality, once again donning his creative hat, as he teams up with Afrobeats godfather and friend, 2Baba, for “Aristo”.

With the release of Aristo, Big A ticks the A&R box in his amazing Afrobeats journey coursing through stellar stints as tour/concert promoter, facility owner, label executive, media mogul and award ceremony executive producer.

It’s no longer news that Afrobeats has taken its pride of place in the music world, but besides the artistes who are the visible faces of this beautiful journey, there’s also the equally important behind-the-scenes support structure that have contributed to the beautiful story. One such personality is Big A.

As CEO of Big A Entertainment, publishers of African Music Magazine, organizers of AFRIMMA Awards, amongst other business interests, Big A is widely regarded as the foremost Afrobeats promoter in North America helping to grow the movement from the fringes to the mainstream of the touring space.

The single features guest vocals from Nigeria’s very own ‘mayor’, singer Mayorkun and South African artists, rapper Costa Titch and multi-award-winning singer Ch’cco.
