Dan Dalton, the longtime manager of International Reggae artiste Damian “Junior Gong” Marley has singed a deal with Roc Nation and his Dalton Entertainment Group.
“I first met [Roc Nation CEO] Jay Brown and [Roc Nation founder] Jay-Z in 2004 when Damian was shopping for a record deal,” Dalton told Billboard Magazine. “Jay and Jay Z were at Def Jam, and it was an exciting time with Damian’s ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ being a summer anthem. We really vibed with them and liked their take on the music business, and very much value their opinions.”
Could this mean the ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ singer will soon sign to the label? He would join top acts such as Bajan pop star Rihanna, J. Cole, Big Sean, Meek Mill and Shakira.
