Kaduna born, Terry Tha Rapman recently concluded paperwork with one of Nigeria’s leading multi-media companies, Dudu Toonz Studios. The award winning artist who dropped his sophomore album ‘Boyz Are Not Smiling’ late last year signed a deal which makes him the company’s official spokesperson and ambassador in the music industry.
The one year deal will see Terry on several Dudu Toonz publicity materials such as jingles, viral videos, wallpapers, animated videos etc. In return the company will shoot Terry Tha Rapman’s next three singles from his Boyz Are Not Smiling Album. Already one of the videos, ‘Been There Before’ has been shot and is currently in post-production.
According to the rapper, ‘Dudu Toonz is the best multi-media effects company in Nigeria and I am elated that I was chosen to be their ambassador and representative in the music industry. In Dudu Toonz they create the unbelievable and I am happy to be on board with them’. Dudu Toonz is an innovative multi-media studio with high profile clients in the corporate and entertainment sector. It has been behind the branding of the prestigious Hip Hop World Awards since 2009 and now seeks to fully integrate itself within the music industry. Their partnership with a talented artist such as Terry Tha Rapman is a step towards their goal of becoming a dominant force in the music video business in a couple of years.
Recently Terry Tha Rapman was nominated in the Best Rap Act at this year’s NEA Awards and his official slogan ‘Boyz Are Not Smiling’ has been recognized as an official term for hustling in the urban dictionary.
