He's currently the MD/CEO Tadok Productions an outstanding entertainment and hospitality company who have caved a nitch for himself in the world of entertainment industry in Nigeria. 
Kindly see extract from his interview below. 

Q: Why start big with your music factory when you could start small and grow with your artistes?
A: When I started Tadok, I was paying for studio sessions for my artistes in small studios. But after doing an in-depth research about studio ownership, South-South artistes and the Nigerian artistes making waves in the music industry, I discovered that a standard professional studio that would have been able to help our artistes compete favorably with other artistes outside was missing in the region. Most of the artistes in the area still mime their own songs even when given an opportunity to play  with   their own instruments. It is usually marred with a lot of flaws because they do not have places for rehearsals or professional studios to build their talent.
Q: Why the passion for promoting South-South artistes?
A: That desire has been in motion since 2003. Most artistes in the area aren’t refined and that has contributed largely to their inability to compete favourably with other artistes from Lagos especially. This is why I am exploring every opportunity to ensure that these artistes can compete favourably with any artiste in the world, by building what has never been seen in the region; what will make them become stars globally.
Q: What other thing did you observe lacking in the music from the South-South artistes?
A: I made several trips to night clubs, churches and other places within and outside the country.  I discovered that even in big night clubs, songs of Port Harcourt based artistes like Timaya, Duncan Mighty, whose music are considered good, were missing from the list of songs on heavy rotation. The discovery that these artistes were not appreciated outside their base was not encouraging at all, only  Lagos -based artistes songs were most prevalent and that meant that there was something wrong. In the South-South, they have a single pattern of beat possibly because most of the producers in the area were trained by the same set of people. And that is one of the reasons why Tadok decided to hire a good music producer in Lagos and equip him with all he needed to work with. I wanted him to infuse the Lagos beat into the South-South beat and create something exotic.  Equipment alone will not make good music, but a good music producer using these good equipment will be able to make the difference.
Q: There are other things involved in making good music. What marketing scheme do you have in place for these artistes?
A: We have a partnership with Ben TV UK to help promote these artistes. I have been in talks with some American record labels to see how we can export our music to the global scene.  We are still discussing other ways of promotion with partners.
