As we start a new month, it gives us great pleasure to officially welcome June Gachui to Team Fezah! June is the embodiment of creative entrepreneurship and talent. She’s a Jazz & Soul musician, an actress, a dancer, amazing MC, and an awesome individual all round. She previously served as the General Manager of the Kenya Association of Music Producers (KAMP), and currently runs a Nairobi-based consultancy boutique known as JGIP CONSULTANTS which offers Intellectual Property (IP) services to a wide range of entrepreneurs in the creative industry. June holds a masters (LLM) in Intellectual Property Law from the George Washington University Law School, in Washington, D.C.
“Kenya has been very challenging for us. Getting the right team on ground has been much harder than we anticipated. Given the lack of an in-country team, we focused on giving our Kenyan artists exposure in Uganda. We’ve consistently driven airplay of their music here in Kampala, and have built a Jazz & Soul stage (called The Fezah Friday Live Edition) that now has a Kenyan slot once a quarter. We are glad to finally be making good progress on the in-country team.” – Elijah Kitaka, Fezah CEO
Fezah is a mobile app for talent booking and market intelligence, available on both Android and iOS. The app allows artists to accept and process bookings online from talent bookers around the world, and links musicians to a growing set of stages that are choosing to book through Fezah for their shows, enabling artists to apply to these stages in a single click. Fezah’s market intelligence suite notifies musicians and advertisers every time their music or ad is played on radio in real-time. On the app, musicians and advertisers also get detailed reports and competitor analysis.
June Gachui joins Fezah as Country Director for Kenya. We are optimistic that with her leadership, we’ll be able to deliver more value for the artists within Kenya, as well as facilitate more exchanges between Kenya and Uganda.
Help us give June a warm Fezah welcome!
