Johnny Wonder goes solo – ends 7 years partnership with 21st Hapilos
Music executive, Johnny Wonder releases statement on his recent departure from the 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution:
Contrary to the recent announcement of my termination as Executive Vice President of 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution, I would like to take the time and set the record and my name straight.
I, Johnny Wonder after spending 4 years of 24 hours a day, 7 days a week non stop work dedicated to building a company have made the sole decision to walk away from an environment that became otherwise toxic and unhealthy both professionally and personally.
For those of you who know my story, Reggae and Dancehall has been my life for several decades. From my humble beginnings at King Jammys to building the largest digital distributor of dancehall and reggae. It was a labor of love that has come at both great rewards and often controversy, but through it all it is my love for this music that has kept me going, thus for this reason I must address an otherwise personal matter.
Walking away from 21st Hapilos Digital Distribution was a hard decision to make, and I wish them the best on all their future endeavors. I, Johnny Wonder will continue on the path of bringing reggae and dancehall to the international forefront, and trod on the path of education and rewarding all facets of the genre, from engineers to artists, producers to music creators. My journey continues. I remain steadfast in my dedication to my longtime and loyal clients, they are my top priority, business continues bigger and better!
