After the most recently concluded Famous5ve event, which hosted Multiple Award Winning American Artist – Sho Baraka on June 4th 2017, Verse5ve is on a roll as it announced operations of their new label – Agency5ve – today. Agency5ve, which is set to release its first product in the next few days, will majorly deal with all its artists’ brand management; marketing; music publishing; touring & merchandising; major partnerships and new business ventures for the brands on its roaster.
Agency5ve will officially be home to newly signed multi-talented rapper/artist Muhanjii in label. Muhanjii is a former member of The T412 Rap group and recently featured on Verse5ve’s recent Famouse5ve’s Open Mic Session(Class of 2017) Powered by Boom Play Music and Ghetto Radio 89.5 begins his solo career on a high with an untitled project already in the works and everyone literally waiting to hear and see him maximize this major career move.
Asked on why Agency 5ve settled on Muhanjii as the first artist under the Label, “Muhanjii has the thrill, Zeal and Energy new artists should have. I believe he can be a game changer in the Kenyan Christian Hip-Hop Industry and if everything works as planned he might actually just cross the East African borders” – Co – Founder Johnson Juma mentioned. Agency 5ve is the first label of its kind in Kenya that targets to grow the local Christian Hip-Hop scene. It might just grow to become a global phenomenon and join the leagues of Reach Records and Humble Beast.
Label Executive Dennis Karenge and Co-Founder Albert Zakayo highlighted the label’s desire to maximise on the advancement of digital media and technology in the music industry. “Our mission is to put Kenyan Christian Hip Hop music on the map as a premium region in African scene.” – Label Executive – Dennis Karenge commented. With their A – List team already executing major moves ahead of Muhanjii’s first single release scheduled for next week, Agency5ve cannot wait to see the success of this relationship and looks forward to the addition of other new and fresh artists to add to its roaster as time goes by.
