LOS ANGELES, CA, August 03, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Afro Icons, a division of Iconic Media Company, today announced the planned launch of their Iconic Records Label to be headquartered in Accra, Ghana and Johannesburg, South Africa, later this fall.

“Partnering with Iconic Records and the team at Afro Icons presents an exciting and unique opportunity to explore new ideas for marketing and promoting an Afrobeats record,” adds Zanzeke Makela, head of Marketing at Iconic Media Company. “It shows a real commitment on the part of Afro Icons towards the artist community, and it will serve as a model for future Afrobeats music releases.
