Norway based Kenyan rapper Stella Mwangi, STL, has signed a management deal with African full-service artist and celebrity talent management company Tsunami MGMT.
Tsunami MGMT, which is under The Rockstar Group of companies, penned an exclusive management deal with Mwangi that will also include a content development deal with its broadcast and multi-platform content companies ‘Rockstar Television’ and ‘Rockstar Radio’.
“Stella is a real tsunami of talent as her stellar success in Hollywood and the USA is already a testament to,” said Jandre Louw, the Founder & President of Tsunami MGMT and President of The Rockstar Group.
“Stella’s amazing musical talent, combined with her superstar image, explosive attitude and relentless drive for success paths the way for complete crossover audience appeal and success beyond any borders and we are thrilled to embark on this journey with her.”
Mwangi has enjoyed huge success abroad in the past few years following her self-titled EP released in 2016.
After years and years of pushing, her music finally penetrated Hollywood and major chart countdowns in Europe. She also, in the process, got a chance to work with several topnotch fashion designers.
Her music, for instance, was used as the theme record for the Tommy Hilfiger runway fashion shows for an entire year as well as featuring in digital campaigns and promotions of the Tommy Now Fall Winter 2017 collection.
Speaking on the new deal, Mwangi promised better content and increased penetration in Africa.
“I’m really excited in joining the Rockstar and Tsunami fam starting with a whole new exciting chapter in rolling out both loads of new music and in addition an increased pan African focus! Africa I’m coming… get ready!” she said.
So far, Mwangi’s work has been featured in films such as American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile and Save the Last Dance 2, CSI: NY and Scrubs, Rough Night and Bad Moms Christmas, hit television such as Insecure, Being MaryJane, Rosewood and the video game sensation Just Dance 2019.
