Nigeria: Music Is More Than Just Talent - Roberto Aghemelo


Roberto Aghemelo is the Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of Roberto Music. The Edo state-born entrepreneur speaks on his investment in the entertainment industry, spotting talents among others.

Passion for entertainment

Entertainment has always been a part of my family. My grandfather popularly known as Yellow was a great traditional graffiti dancer in his youth. A kind of traditional dance known as 'Igbabonenlimin' ( clap of the spirit) . This dance took him and his group to America for a performances in the early 70s. My grandmother is also a great dancer, and till date, she can't hear a nice dance tune without giving rhythm to her legs.

So you see entertainment runs in my family.

Home to great talents

I know talent when I see a good one. However, music is more than just talent. There is always this extra thing, extra zeal, extra charisma.

By the grace of God, Roberto Music is here to be a home to great talents, great entertainment, good music, positive vibes and so much more.

Watch out for us. We have so much in store that will get unraveled one step at a time.


My number one advice is the golden rule LOVE. Spread love along everywhere you go. With love, the already established top artistes in Nigeria will be able to reach out to the upcoming ones and help them to have a good footage in the industry. After all, the upcoming artistes are the ones that will keep the legacy alive and improve on it.

Also we need more people to invest in the Nigeria Music Industry and give more hope to our youth and continue to improve on the already established structure.

We have a lot of rare raw talented artistes out there that have got that Extra Thing that just need a little financial push to shine.
