… as MD for Francophone Africa
In a new expansion drive to actualize its pan-African goals, foremost creative agency, Temple Management Company,TMC, has appointed international Artiste and Repertoire (A&R) executive, Hadja Kobele Keita, as Managing Director for its Francophone region.
Under her new role, Ms. Keita will oversee the aggressive expansion of the pan-African creative powerhouse in French-speaking Africa working with individual talents as well as organizations from the region to actualize the goal of TMC.
At a private ceremony in Lagos at the organisation’s corporate headquarters, Ms. Keita was unveiled by Mr. Idris Olorunnimbe, Group Chief Executive, in company of other members of the group’s senior management of the fast-growing organization.
Temple Francophone is expected to coordinate with the main office based in Lagos, but will have a headquarters in Abidjan. The organization also operates an East Africa regional office in Nairobi, Kenya.
According to Mr. Olorunnimbe, the new move has again reaffirmed TMC as a truly global brand. “When we started this journey over a year ago, our intentions were clear – to fill a void as a global creative brand based in Africa. Our target is to be a bridge builder between international investors and African talents across different categories. The launch of Temple Francophone is one of the pieces in the jigsaw puzzle to actualize that,” the TMC head-honcho explained.
Until her new appointment, the Howard University trained showbiz personality was Head of Public Relations and Special Projects, Universal Music. She brings in a lot of experience as a seasoned talent scout, versatile promoter with vast international influence in the area of media and public relations.
