New & Improved: I Rep Lib Broaden Its Platform

                                                                    By Berenice Mulubah


"I’m a family man, I have a wonder wife, job and I have a huge passion for Liberian entertainment." Lincoln TheLegend Ward/CEO Irep Lib 


Without a doubt, I rep Lib is a strong supporter of Liberian entertainment growing industry. It is a platform that allows anyone to find information about Liberian entertainers. 
Designed and developed by I Rep Lib CEO, TheLegend talks about his vision for I Rep Lib, starting from its genesis, "I’ve always been fascinated with computers. My love for computer drew me to the idea of building a platform for Liberians to mingle.  I was inspired by a website called Black Planet, something like facebook, but at the time, I wasn't too inclined. I came up with a site, The Liberian Umbrella. Over time, the site started to grow.  I also have a passion for music.  I decided to combined my two passions, music and computers and came up with an upgrade, Lib Africa, a platform for Liberians to mingle and listen to music. I didn't have a lot of music at the time. There wasn't a lot of Liberian musicians on the scene.  A friend of mine, Jerome, went to Liberia and brought a lot of Liberian music that I uploaded to the site.  Jodi was the first Liberian musician who contacted with his song, then Black Diamond, Georgee B, Sundaydar Dearboy and the rest started coming around.  Over the years, Liberia Africa audience grew.  To foster the growth of the site, I renamed it 'I Rep Lib'. The name was changed in 2007."
                                                                                      

What should we expect from the upgraded site: A place to find all things Liberian entertainment, not just limited to music and movies. I'm trying to make I rep Lib a source where people can find information on all of Liberian entertainment, that’s why I am working on a new site, I’m going to focus on fashion, entertainment news, literature and more. I’m reaching out to lot of people to post their work.  I’m getting bloggers in Liberia to provide entertainment news.  My main goal is to provide a platform that outsider can find Liberian entertainment.  And it is working so far, I’ve been getting some emails from outsiders looking for Liberian to interview. That's the vision, one-stop-shop Liberian entertainment platform.

                                                                                 

How can the entertainers make this process easier for you: I need more people to work with me. I can post their work and give them credit.  Some are already doing that, there are some artists that I reach out to and I get redirected, but I can’t find their work.  I need them to be cooperative and send their work.  I’m having a difficult time to get them to do that, others are trying to work with me.  Sam Junior reached out to me about Lib record polls.  Lib record polls is a site only for DJs.  You have to register and get approved, to access the music.  Junda Morris, Yeatoe and few others reached out to me. I’m available, even if it is the same thing I’m doing, I’m willing to work with others and I hope people will see that and open up more.  At the end of the day, the common goal is putting Liberian Entertainment industry at the top.

Liberia: Stunna In Negotiation For $1Million Deal With Universal Music

The rumor is true.  Speaking with Liberian musician Stunna management this morning, it has being confirmed that Stunna and his team are negotiating with Universal Music to take on the artist.  His team did not confirmed the exact amount, because negotiation is still in process, but it has been said that $1million was the first offer.  The global company's main rival is Temple Music, home to Nigeria's Iyana, who has worked with the Liberian artist in the past. But with Universal reportedly offering more than $1m for a six-year contract, it seem like Stunna is leaning towards Universal Music.
