FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Fashion Media Icon Rocco Leo Gaglioti Honored as ‘Ladybrille Man’

Sacramento, CA (April 7th, 2015)— Ladybrille Magazine, a digital platform celebrating brilliant women entrepreneurs and leaders and the pioneer voice for African fashion in the West, honors fashion media icon Rocco Leo Gaglioti in a special feature as ‘Ladybrille Man.’

“Rocco is a strong pillar in the fashion community,” said Uduak Oduok Founder of Ladybrille Magazine. “His work has had significant positive impact on the fashion community globally. We are pleased to honor him for his selfless and tireless contributions to fashion.”

“I’m really excited and honored to be featured as ‘Ladybrille Man,’” said Rocco. “Thank you for celebrating me.”

Rocco Gaglioti is a self-made triple threat -- creator, producer and host. He founded the televised on-line fashion magazine,, which almost overnight has become ranked as one of the top ten out of the 150 million fashion; and celebrity sites around the world. He hit the ground running in 2004 with his very first interview on the red carpet with Anna Nicole Smith. Not bad for a rookie. And the fact that she tried to make out with him didn't even scare him away from pursuing his lifelong dream of working in the fashion industry.

Even though he makes it look easy, Rocco came from humble, though very loving beginnings. He learned to communicate with his hands through sign language before he could even speak because of his mother, who was born deaf. This naturally gave him a lifelong appreciation for the underdog, along with the advantage of a much more enhanced "sixth sense."

Rocco’s special feature can be found on the magazine’s website at |

The Africa Music Law Show: Meet @MaleekBerry Rising Super Producer for @Wizkidayo, @Iyanya & @FuseOdg

Maleek Berry is one of the UK and Africa’s rising music super producers. He has produced for Africa’s biggest music stars such as Wizkid (The Matter), Wande Coal (Baby Hello), Davido (Carolina), Sinzu (Carolina), Iyanya (Finito), the UK’s Fuse ODG (Ye Play) and America’s Wale (Allelu).

He is currently signed to Wizkid’s Starboy Entertainment record label. He joins host Ms. Uduak on the 40th episode of The Africa Music Law Show to discuss the business of music production, his personal background, breaking into the music industry and much more. It’s a must listen and must share interview with great insights for artists, producers and entrepreneurs.
The Africa Music Law show is the premiere music business and entertainment law show empowering the African artist, and the creative industry at large. The show made iTunes Top 4 in its ‘New & Noteworthy’ category in 2014. Countries represented are Nigeria (26%), USA (23%), UK (15%), UAE (7%), and Other (29%).

On how music producers work in Nigeria: I am not going to talk bad about the industry. But one thing I will say is that the industry is not built for producers at all, it is built against us. For example, a producer from Maryland in Lagos wants to produce for an artists like Wizkid, Davido or anybody. Maybe they pay 250k…the producer does that, they get paid and that’s it. There is no backend. The artists goes off and does 101 shows and gets paid but thy have only had to pay 250,000Naira for a beat.

On his relationship with Davido: We are cool. We are good. When the whole situation happened with him and Wizkid, when they weren’t really talking. I just really tried to maintain neutral and I just didn’t get involved. Obviously now they are cool. I hate drama. I am just the opposite kind of person and I just don’t want to get involved in anything like that.

Advice to artists: The fame is cool. But get into the music, learn an instrument that is going to set you apart from everyone else. Believe in yourself, be prayerful, stay away from trying to fill gaps with things like drugs. When people say, “man I need to get high to make a hit,” NO! It’s inside you. Everything you need is inside you.

Advice to Producers: Producers we are all artists. Embrace your talent. Don’t hide it. Don’t waste it. Don’t sit on it and brand yourself. That is the way producers are going to be able to survive in this industry. Build face value.
