Wins for Sony Music at the A&R and Women in Music Awards
Sony Music had successes this week at the A&R Awards and the Music Week Women in Music Awards, ceremonies that honour brilliant executives working in the UK music business.
The A&R Awards in association with Abbey Road Studios saw Kilo Jalloh, Moe Bah and Mel Ijieh of 5K Records win A&R of the Year in the Contemporary Black Music category. 5K has had an incredible 2023, with People – the debut UK hit by 5K signing Libianca – turning into something of a phenomenon throughout the year. Another 5K success story has been King Promise, the superstar from Ghana who had one of the songs of the summer with Terminator.
The Music Week Women in Music Awards – staged with The Association of Independent Music and UK Music – welcomed Daisy Greenhead, Director of Communications, to the esteemed Roll of Honour.
Daisy has been instrumental in redefining corporate communications at Sony Music UK by pushing boundaries, inspiring the company to become more forward-thinking and progressive, while maintaining a diverse and inclusive position. Initiatives such as Premium Days, working with Mind, and her involvement in the rehabilitation programme Key4Life point to Daisy’s interest in broader social causes. She holds a leadership position in the ‘What If’ internal employee resource group and is dedicated to advancing the cause of women, playing an active role in driving forward Sony Music’s policies on premature babies, paternity leave, and childcare funding.
Many congratulations to Kilo Jalloh, Moe Bah, Mel Ijieh, and Daisy Greenhead on these fantastic achievements.
