In a recent interview with 234Next, Chocolate City Group executives, Audu Maikori, Yahaya Maikori, and Paul Okeugo revealed that the label is in search of a Beyonce-calibre female singing star.
“Ideally, the new choc girl will be the complete package: physically appealing, good voice, stage presence, and able to speak intelligently when interviewed by the press,” NEXT reports them to have said.
The Chocolate City execs so far appear to be impressed by Kele Kele Love singer, Tiwa Savage. On her performance at the Crack Ya Ribs comedy show with Julius Agwu, Chocolate City boss Audu Maikori said “She was fantastic. She worked the crowd, danced, and was just captivating.”
The execs further revealed that “What has eluded every female musician in Nigeria thus far is a runaway club hit like Ice Prince’s Oleku, or his latest track, ‘Super Star’, or Mo’Hits’ ‘Give it to Me’.”
The label is currently on the look out for promising female talents that could hopefully become the next “Choc Chic.”
