CW17 Premieres New Music Video Countdown Show
Music 4 U Airs April 7
(Jacksonville, FL) – As summer approaches, Jacksonville residents will have a hot new
TV show on the air showcasing a blend of music, art, and fashion.
The music video countdown show Music 4 U (M4U) premieres on CW17 networks on
Sunday, April 7, 2013 at 7:30 p.m.
Each week, the show’s creator and host, “Kojo”, will interview positive artists,
entertainers and personalities in the Jacksonville community and across Northeast
Florida. The half-hour show includes “The Hot List”, a Top 5 countdown of music videos
chosen by viewers who vote weekly via the M4U website.
M4U also features a fashion segment hosted by “Mz London”, whose British accent adds
international appeal to every chic trend she shares.
The premiere season will include interviews with guests such as Jacksonville Jaguars’
lineman Jeremy Mincey, Billboard Top 100 charting artist J.Dash, and many more.
“Kojo”, a Kentucky native, came to Jacksonville with a passion for music, and a love for
the city. After encountering a few setbacks in his own music career, he developed the
vision for a show that would provide exposure for local artists. The show’s goal is to
create opportunities so that artists stay in Jacksonville rather than move to Atlanta, New
York, or LA to pursue their careers.
“We’re giving Jacksonville something it’s never seen before. We not only want to
showcase local talent--we want to attract talent to the city and spotlight Jacksonville as a
thriving hub for pursuing a music career.” Kojo says.
