The entertainment industry is a tough jungle. For many years, black artists have fought for the recognition they deserve. Today, Elite Empire Group is furthering the cause by elevating black talents on a global scale through its new avenue made exclusively for artists of color: the Melanin House of Kingz, under Elite Empire Group.
Elite Empire Group is known for providing opportunities for artists and assisting them in landing marketing and endorsement deals. Additionally, the company has positively impacted its community through outreaches and charitable tie-ins. Elite Empire Group delivers unparalleled media relations and brand strategies for its clients, allowing them to eclipse their competition in their industries.
In line with its goal to bring artists at the forefront of their game, Elite Empire Group launched the new Melanin House of Kingz, dedicated solely to serve black artists and bring them under the spotlight across the globe. The house will be located in the heart of Los Angeles, fostering black talents from all over the country, including social media influencers, actors, and musicians.
Among the artists under the New Melanin House of Kingz are the social media sensation Greg Metelus, social media influencers Keyon Holiday and Ric Alston, as well as the upcoming music artist Malik Gardner aka Leekoway. The house will also work with Khari “Mr. Waistline Wednesday” Herbert Jr. and Mar’Kel Epps, aka SK Kel.
Elite Empire Group was founded by Brandon “B.Lee” Buckley. The CEO, social media influencer, and public relations manager always had a passion for helping artists like himself rise above others. Besides Elite Empire, the CEO built a non-profit organization called HUB for the inner-city youth, which encourages them to pursue their dreams. With his new initiative, the New Melanin House of Kingz, Brandon aims to fill the gap that separates promising black talents from the rest of the world.
“Having a house full of black talent is something the industry is missing. The Melanin House of Kingz is what the industry is waiting for,” said the CEO. Indeed, the new house is a testament that the black community holds a lot of promise in achieving great things in the entertainment industry.
Asked what motivated him to pursue such a venture, Brandon shared that Empire Elite Group and the Melanin House of Kingz were inspired by the men in his family before him who strived to put black culture forward.
The CEO grew up in a circle of black entrepreneurs who were deeply rooted and proud of their culture. He wants to embody the same kind of spirit today. Besides his family, the CEO was also motivated by the achievements of other entrepreneurs such as P. Diddy Combs, Drake, and Sean “Jay-Z” Carter.
As a firm supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Brandon aims for the Melanin House of Kingz & The Melanin House Brand to serve his community and uplift its hidden gems of talents, waiting to be amplified to the rest of the world.
