Legend Entertainment

Thanks to David for providing this information:

Legend Entertainment is a rapidly expanding entertainment company operating through various divisions of entertainment. Examples of these divisions range from online Facebook competitions through to independently hosting unique events. The company was founded by Mr David Mwere after dedicating one year self-studying and researching the music industry plus getting motivation from close friends. His studies led him to a more broad and exciting affair, a full entertainment package.  After starting Legend Entertainment, fate had found David when crossing paths with an undiscovered talented young rapper Armaan Khera. Armaan, already working on his debut mixtape with D.M.E, joined forces with David in 2012 to ensure a successful release. Through connections with close friends, David assembled a team of six trustworthy members to commit personal time in preparing a suitable image for the company he had been dreaming about creating. Legend Entertainment had been born. The team consisted of David, Armaan Khera, Corey Snow, Jasper Connery, Daniel Nixon, and Hugh Tucker. From here, the workload exploded. Immediately kicking the company off with promotional work for Facebook, the Legend Model competition was established attracting 20 entries from all over New Zealand. This led to the team gaining valuable connections with companies such as Embassy Theatre, Star Now and KCT Street Wear who at the time had over 45,000 likes for their Facebook page. Witnessing David’s increasing accomplishments, a close friend agreed to invest in the company. David usually says he owes it it all to his friend for believing in him.

With the company on the rise, Legend Entertainment decided to aim high and with intense negotiation, won the rights to become the official Wellington promoters for international hip hop artist B.o.B. Legend saw their dedication moving forward but his instincts knew each expansion had to overcome the last. A senior team member Corey Snow, had been living in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom for the past few months and the pair agreed a UK subsidiary company was inevitable. Corey was appointed head of Legend Entertainment UK and kicked things off with a boom establishing good connections in the night club scene. Throughout the months, extra hands were called upon and crucial team members officially joined the force, Yaroslav Khmel, Mohitesh Sharma, Tom Clark and Courtney Phelps. Recent success for the motivated group include gaining the rights to host Miss Bikini Wellington NZ, a successful concert and a deal to hold hosting regular nights and concerts at the grand.

After almost some hard work, Legend Entertainment organised an official party on the night of homegrown for the Illegal Musik Record Label where numerous New Zealand celebrities like J Williams, P Money, David Dallas, Tomorrow People, Brooke Duff and Che Fu attended. The event was successful and established a good connection with Legend Entertainment and The Grand, a unique centrally located venue in CBD. There is also the continued growth with developing artist such as Alexis Cartwright who will be debuting on David’s very own extended playlist Futuristic featuring his close friends Daniel and Jasper under their imprint label “Family Buisness.’ David has announced that he will be stepping down and passing the Manager title over to his right hand man Yaroslav so he can focus on building the music side of things where his true passion lies. He will however remain as CEO. Legend Entertainment has designed promotional unique packages that a few venues in Wellington are interested in using. These packages will provide venues a whole new approach on increasing business through social media marketing and viral campaigns. Legend Entertainment will be hosting weekly nights and some Saturday nights at The Grand, Courtney Place in association with AGWA alcohol brand in most cases. Their aim is to slowly build every division of the company to finally create a full entertainment package. Legend Entertainment will aim at releasing an EP and a few singles this year while organisng a concert every month, every concert shall be bigger than the previous one. The Legend Prestige Card will be the company's newest venture - this will be a loyalty card that can be used in different night clubs and events. Look out for their next event - Easter DJ bASH Weds 27th of March featuring MayaVanya- two floors of entertainment and a garden bar.  “We are hard working, motivated and believe with creativity we can hold our competitive advantage in the industry" David M.

Summery New Video for Dulciana and Little Lapin

TVNZ series Agent Anna’s catchy theme song Above The Clouds was written and produced by Ben King and features the dulcet tones of Little Lapin.

This summery single now has it's own beautiful new music video.

Created by the talented stop motion filmmakers Bayly and Moore, this breezy production features the carefree Little Lapin (aka Lucy Cioffi) driving around the picturesque rural and coastal roads of her hometown, Raglan. A perfect accompaniment to the sunny optimism of the song.
