Aderonke Ariyo who goes by her stage name, DJ Soupamodel, has been selected as a governor for the 2016 Grammy awards.

Every year, The Recording Academy selects a group of artistes and producers who will be responsible for deciding how the Grammy Awards will run. And this year, Ronke sits on the Washington DC chapter of the board.

Ronke has worked with local and international artistes including Tiwa Savage, Jason Derulo and was a Grammy DJ in 2013.

Currently, she is the CEO of a music publishing and licensing company, Music BLVD. It’s impressive that African women in the entertainment industry are finally getting acknowledged especially in the international scenes.

A massive congratulations to Ronke!
