MKO

As a singer-songwriter, art enthusiast, and presenter, MKO is the true definition of multi-hyphenate. Back in 2021, he made his mark with Diverse – the first AfroPop album to be released in the region. Having made waves in the music scene, MKO went on to found Art Fusion Night which brings together artists of different disciplines to share their work. Now, boasting success in various industries, MKO has been enlisted by Chivas to help showcase emerging talent through its “Regals Blends and Beats” podcast as well as other campaigns.

SherryX

Though her career on the decks started out in Turkey, DJ and producer SherryX has grown to be a regular fixture in Dubai’s nightlife circuit. Headlining clubs, yacht parties, and even arena showcases, she’s known to spin a classic set of contemporary tech house, never failing to attract a packed-out crowd.

Monday Agono Matteyu

From gracing high fashion catwalks to being crowned Mr. Nigeria in 2015, Monday Matteyu’s career is one to be proud of. Most recently, he has worked closely with Dubai Fashion Week and a number of well-known brands, creating content and using his platform to showcase the vibrant creative landscape in the Middle East – hoping to push forward the region’s fashion industry.

Eric Akoa

Similar to Matteyu, Eric Akoa has nurtured a successful career in front of the lens as a model for various campaigns, lookbooks, and adverts. Today, however, he juggles a variety of fashion and lifestyle jobs with coaching the next generation of aspiring models.
