Master Series: Nana Yaw Wiredu to hold masterclass for entertainment executives

The Founder and Creative Director of Oneplay Africa is running a free online music master class aimed at helping the next generation of music and entertainment executives in Ghana.

According to him, most entertainment platforms, (traditional and digital media) are focused on the trends but no one is taking the time to assist the next generation of music and entertainment executives to understand the business side of our industry.

Talking about the inspiration behind the Master Series, NanaYaw Wiredu said with over a decade of experience in the industry that cuts across all sectors such as publishing, blogging, PR, events management, artiste management, and talent PR, he sees this as his contribution to the development of our industry.

“I have been fortunate to work as a newspaper publisher with 18newspaper while in tertiary school. As a blogger I was called NanaYaw18.com, a publicist for Empire Entertainment, Hype Records, Ticketdoug, PR for keyboardist Kwame Yeboah and the Ohia Beye Ya band, Guru, Ruff N Smooth, Edem, Highly Spiritual , Kwabena Kwabena, Abeam Danso, Yaa Yaa, Mike of Mentor fame, DKB the comedian, Lexis Bill of Joy FM, the late Vybrant Faya, and many others,” he said.

He has also managed artistes such as Nana Yaa, D-Flex, Mzbel, just to list a few. As an event organiser, he has worked on Ghana Muslim Achievers awards, Bisa Kdei’s ‘Thanksgiving’ album launch, Mimi of Big Brother Africa’s album launch, Mzbel at 10 concerts, Ghana Meets Naija, Afronation Ghana, Bavaria Big in Ghana, Ghana spectacular for the Golden Tulip Hotel, and MuseBOQ parties, among others.

Nana Yaw also served as a Social Media Manager and producer for Vibe FM, TV 3’s Xlive, Lifestyle TV, and other online shows.

He further stated that most people shelve the technicalities in music while having discussions because it is difficult but it is easy to understand when done right hence as a former member of the Tigo music team that introduced Deezer to Ghana, I think I have gone through the mill to be able to guide young people in that direction.

The online series runs on Oneplay Africa pages on social media and Nana Yaw’s personal handle @iamnanayaw18 for free, he ended.
