UK-based group, Team Salut are firming up their dream to expand their music from Europe to Africa and other parts of the world by aligning with the Temple Management Company (TMC).
In West Africa and other parts of the continent, the three-man music group made up of talented producers are known for their 2016 smash hit song ‘Dance For Me’ with Mr Eazi and Eugy which clocked over 50 million online streams.
During their recent visit to Nigeria, the group collaborated with several Nigerian artists including Ycee, 9ice, Iyanya, LAX, Korede Bello and Jeff Akoh among others.
Team Salut comprises Mr Wood, GKP and Side Chain Manny – three self-taught multi-instrumentalists who met in London and fused their roots across Africa’s West Coast, from Ghana to Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
While announcing their latest move via social media, Team Salut said, “We are pleased to announce that we are now officially part of Temple Management and will now kick into gear our #SalutSeason world domination. All African affairs will be handled by the dons at the Temple company.”
Speaking, Mark Redguard, Head of Entertainment, TMC noted the alignment was made possible with a synergy between UK-based Talent Management Agency, First Access Entertainment who manages Team Salut and pan-African entertainment powerhouse, Temple Management Company.
“We welcome Team Salut into our vast pool of talents and human resources. We look forward to helping them realize their dreams via our verticals in East, South and West Africa,” said Redguard.
