CEEK to roll out more virtual concerts with Ghanaian artists – KJ Spio

Published

on

CEEK, a platform that allows musicians and creatives to mainly monetize their work in the forms of virtual concerts, exclusive music videos, or even behind the scenes and interviews, has hinted at upcoming premium content from Ghanaian artists.

 

Creative Director of CEEK, KJ Spio has revealed that the platform is already set in motion projects with a least six Ghanaian artists.

 

“We have a lot of content planned and we have a lot of virtual concerts coming up. As we have established already with the likes of Sarkodie, we always pick the most unique locations and themes. We are actually curating specific and original content, where we will create original music, music videos, exclusively for the platform. We have about six Ghanaian artists we’ve already set in motion that will be seen in the first quarter of 2022. So, it’s very very exciting,” comments KJ Spio.

Ceek started about four years ago and the first few years were mainly about developing the concept and platform to what it is now. It’s been working with a wide range of artists from pop stars to afrobeats acts, rappers, to even reality stars as well. In Ghana, their biggest imprint yet has been the production of  Sarkodie’s epic ‘Black Love’ virtual concert held at the Independence Square, in Accra.

 

KJ Spio urged Ghanaians to sign up on CEEK for more exciting and exclusive multi-genre content from around the world.

 

“I think everyone should sign up! We have different content that caters to different people. What I have noticed so far is that for instance if Kotoko is playing a live match, we find their fans signing up to watch the match. So, I think it is a gradual process. We want to create stuff that would be exciting enough for people to sign up.”

 

KJ Spio is a leading artist manager and label executive who has gained international success with artists from across the globe such as; Cadet, Big Narstie, Sarkodie, Efya, and Blaq Jerzee. KJ’s strategic mindset has seen him nurture talent and build their global presence within the music, TV, sports, and entertainment spaces.

 

A creative in the truest sense KJ has led on creative direction (CEEK virtual concert series), exec production, and A&R (Sarkodie ‘No Pressure’). Utilizing his experience within the music industry KJ has led to developing label services and consultancy to support the next generation of creative talent. KJ managed leading UK artist Cadet who went on to sell millions of records and gain UK chart position with his hit single ‘Advice’. KJ’s business acumen and creative mindset have seen him partner with the likes of; NFL, Audiomack, IMG Talent, Reebok, Ditto, Moneygram, and Belaire to create iconic moments that connect with audiences worldwide.

 

From creative partnerships to global businesses – KJ’s resilience and passion drive him to continually break ceilings and take talents and brands to new heights.

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.
