The deal also cements Wisdom as the senior or consultant of Joluv Arts due to his well renowned writing and pr skills. Wisdom will be part of a team that will administer the branding and new direction of Joluv Arts image and activities which is focused on self reliance as the label owns it’s own studio, outdoor show sound system, media house, visual production house and more.
