You’ve Been Asking For More Music. We’ve Heard You,
And We Want To Deliver. We WILL Deliver! But

We Need Your Support

The Music Business Academy (MBA) for Africa, founded and curated by renowned talent manager and entertainment business executive Godwin Tom, is on a mission to build a more informed and empowered workforce for Africa’s music and entertainment industry.

One of the ways it achieves this is by letting the students – like us – take over operations of the academy, and apply everything we’ve been learning to record and release two EPs in two months! We formed a simulated record label to work with actual, emerging artistes and help propel their careers forward.

Our first release...


Our first release, the “Heart On A Sleeve” EP has been warmly received by listeners from Nigeria, Ghana, the US, the UK, Canada, Turkey and several more countries. In large part, this is due to the incredible emerging artistes, songwriters, and producers who created each of the 5 tracks. They all made it to the final round of MBA’s Talent Project this year, and worked together to perfect every aspect of the EP. 

We’ve been consistently promoting Heart On A Sleeve, including a private premiere on September 17th before it’s worldwide release on the 22nd. Streaming numbers and sales have been steadily increasing since then, thanks to you – our fans, followers, and supporters. We appreciate you more than you know!

That's why we're excited about our second release!

Our Second Release

Our second release is another 5-track EP due to drop on November 19th. You’ve been asking for it and waiting on it, so we’re focused on making it even better than the first – both lyrically and sonically. Since we are students operating a simulated record label, the revenue from “Heart On A Sleeve” belongs to its creative copyright holders – the singers, writers and producers – not us. MBA For Africa 2021 students keep no portion of it, so we can’t use any of that money to help cover the expenses for this new release.

The funds we’ve been able to generate from personal and other contributions only take us part of the way. Now, we need your help to cross the finish line.
