British Black Music

Kwaku is the founder of the BritishBlackmusic.com (BBM) and Black Music Congress (BMC), which is a forum for discussing black music issues, networking, and highlighting and providing pathways to music industry education. He's a music industry journalist, lecturer, and consultant. A former columnist for Billboard and DJ, and worker of the now defunct Black Music Industry Association, he began his career many moons ago running his own indie label and music publishing firm.

Having taught on music business courses in formal institutions, including University Of Westminster, City University London, City & Islington College, and Collage Arts, he now runs accessible music industry and event planning courses through BTWSC, a voluntary organisation that develops potential through use of the creative arts. He holds master degrees in Media, Music Business Management, and an LLM in Entertainment Law, plus BIIAB Award for Music Promoters (AMP). He has a keen interest in intellectual property issues - he's organised and chaired a number of music copyright seminars, has an eclectic taste in music, and speaks on black music sector issues on panels and in the media.
