Those who keep their ears close to the ground must have already heard about this dude.
And those who are up and about should have encountered him already – young, stylish and driven, Eric Idiahi is the man behind Spinlet – the digital music distribution company that’s the new bride of musicians.
With Spinlet already working with 2face Idibia, Banky W, Wizkid, Eldee, MI, Ice Prince, and many more, Eric has his eyes set on solving the distribution problem in Nigeria, while helping curb piracy and helping artistes and their labels make more money.
He’s started well already – breaking download and sales records with the EME all-stars album, sponsoring Ice Prince’s collaboration with Gyptian, sponsoring 2face, Ice Prince, Naeto C and others to the globally-famous SXSW in Austin, Texas and supporting dozens of local Nigerian artistes with recording, promo and other facilities.
Eric, who is very much married, is a music fan who is building a movement out of his love for the art. What most people don’t know is that he’s also the co-founder of Verod Capital, one of Nigeria’s leading investment firms, based in Lagos, Nigeria
