Bu Thiam Appointed Vice President at Columbia Records


Rapper Akon's little brother Bu has been appointed Executive Vice President at Columbia Records...

From Variety
Abou “Bu” Thiam has been appointed executive vice president at Columbia Records. Reporting into chairman and CEO Ron Perry, Bu’s position will straddle A&R and strategic initiatives across all genres for the label that’s home to Lil Nas X, Harry Styles, Adele, the Kid Laroi and many others.
Thiam has been working closely with Perry and Columbia via a joint venture, Buvision, where he signed the artists KayCyy and Rican. “We all know breaking a new artist is very difficult, and to see the Columbia team be so committed in the early stages of KayCyy’s career — from marketing, strategic branding, his EP rollout etc. — was very impressive,” says Thiam. “Columbia’s culture is breaking New artists — like Fivio, Lil Nas X, Polo G, the Kid Laroi — and Ron is a true music man at heart, you don’t see that type of artist development anymore.”

I wonder how many black cows, goats and chicken they had a sacrifice to obtain that? I guess they found a credible babalow and iyanifa in that shady ass Ifa tradition.

I'm sure it's a figurehead role to reward him for some shady shit he did behind the scenes. Most of these CEOs and executives are just titles with no real power or backing behind them. If anything, we're in store for more racially ambiguous women mimicking African and Black American culture. Because the true goal is to make the transition of black American culture into something that's racially ambiguous, and rooted in eurocentric beauty.

Damn. @9:33 Don't forget the "sexual" civil rights movement and the demasculinization of the black man. Right in your face, training the youth, No shame.
