Mike Edwards, finalist of the just concluded Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show, has signed on to Empire Mates Entertainment (EME), a talent management company co-founded by Banky W, Nigerian musician and politician.

Banky W took to his social media pages on Friday to break the news and announce that henceforth, EME will be managing the official affairs of the reality TV star.

“ManlikeMike – @aireyys is unquestionably one of the most focused housemates EVER in the history of #bigbrothernaija. Even BEFORE he got on the show, he was an ambitious and accomplished athlete and Businessman – with his stellar line of Beard Oil, Caps and @aireyyscigars (first black-owned cigar company in the UK),” he wrote.

“Proud of the classy way he carried himself during the show, and excited to be partnering with him and his incredible wife @itspsd on their vision and plans going forward. Glad to announce that Mike has signed to @theofficialeme_’s management division. Welcome, Mike and Perry to the family!!! Thank you for trusting us.

The deal was struck a few days after the 2019 BBNaija first runner up hinted that he would not honour any invitation that excludes Perri, his wife.

The management deal also comes at a time when Tacha Akide, a fellow housemate, announced Tunji ‘TeeBillz’ Balogun as her new manager.

With the deal, Mike is expected to joins the likes of Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, DJ Xclusive, Toolz and others managed by the agency.

EME was founded by Banky W and Tunde Demuren in 2002.

But in February 2018, the talented songwriter reformed the record label to a talent management company focused on creative marketing, advertising, PR and brand events.
