Dwayne Bravo signs music deal with Los Angeles music group Venus

first_imgTrinidad and Tobago cricket all-rounder, Dwayne Bravo, has signed a music deal with Los Angeles-based entertainment company Venus Music Group. Bravo’s latest venture follows years of dabbling in music as a hobby, as well as after a global launch of his popular Indo-Anglo fusion called Chalo Chalo. Venus Music Group represents international superstars like Gladys Knight, Lisa Nichols and Sonu Nigam. “This new synergy now gives me the chance to make the DJ Bravo name a bigger brand and I’m excited for the great and exciting things ahead. Venus was the right choice for me, especially with their reach in Asia, where I have a great fan base, and in the US, where I am keen on entering,” said Bravo, who captained the Trinidad and Tobago Red Steel to victory in the just completed Caribbean Premier League. “People take me seriously on the cricket pitch and I want to be taken as seriously on a stage or on a microphone. Cricket is my business and I intend to take the same approach to music and entertainment.” Venus Music Group CEO Shehan Rajaratnam says he is “excited to welcome Dwayne Bravo into the Venus Entertainment Group family”. Bravo’s team also includes public relations company PearTree Consulting, headed by Nyssa Pierre, and entertainment lawyer Carla Paris, both of Trinidad and Tobago. “Bravo has a global fan base that loves him and supports him when he plays anywhere in the world, especially in the South-east Asian territories. We are excited to facilitate and take Bravo’s passion for music to his fans and, in the process, establish and grow his brand and brand equity,” said Rajaratnam. “Sport and music go hand in hand and are as entertaining as much as they are viable businesses, and there is no one who can successfully represent the two as much as Dwayne Bravo can.” Bravo took home the coveted Purple Cap award for the most wickets taken in the India Premier League this season and became the first cricketer ever to be nominated in any category at the prestigious ESPY Awards.last_img read more

New-look Liverpool! Four EXCITING LFC line ups with big money new signings courtesy of Sterling deal

first_img 5 2. Liverpool’s defence was shambolic at times last season and the versatile figures of Marc Bartra and Toby Alderweireld would open up a range of options for Rodgers. Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling seems destined for an acrimonious departure from Anfield this summer.The 20-year-old forward is adamant that he isn’t a money grabber, but will do his bank balance no harm if he does complete a move to Manchester City.Manuel Pellegrini’s side lodged a new and improved £40 million offer for Sterling earlier today, but it still might not be enough to get their man.The Merseysiders could opt to hold out for an even bigger fee, although plenty of their fans will be hopeful that Brendan Rodgers takes the money and scarpers.But how should the squad be strengthened if the Reds receive a healthy windfall for their prize asset? Which areas of the side are in need of attention?A more fitting question would be which areas do not need to be reinforced? The answer is none. New additions are required all over the park.How can the Reds spend their Raheem Sterling money?Given that it now seems as though Sterling will be sold for a minimum of £40 million, Liverpool are set to receive a healthy transfer pot, once Queens Park Rangers’ share of the sum has been divvied up.Yet, of the hordes of targets that Liverpool have been linked with only one, two, or perhaps three, will arrive. talkSPORT has assessed how the Merseysiders could line up once they have spent their Raheem Sterling money, below…1. Roberto Firmino’s trickery would help to ease the loss of the spark that Sterling provides in attack while Nathaniel Clyne could ensure the unpopular Glen Johnson is instantly forgotten. 5 3. But what if Liverpool put all of their eggs into one man’s basket? Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke has a huge release clause, but his signature could be a masterstroke if the Belgian forged a partnership with Daniel Sturridge. 5 4. Finally, a marquee signing could lift the entire mood at the club. Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, who has attracted interest from Chelsea, is a superb talent and could be the X factor that Liverpool have lacked since Luis Suarez’s departure.
