Deejay Aidonia has signed a management as well as an endorsement contract with American businessman Corey Todd. Todd, who is a former business partner of Vybz Kartel, said that Aidonia will play a key role in the marketing and promotion of two new products which will hit the marketplace in the next six months.

"We're forming a business and musical organisation with Beenie Man, Aidonia and Jahvinci, with Notnice and Askel as the in-house producers, and we're gonna lock down Jamaica," Todd said in a release.

"This is an inclusive organisation and we will be working with other great dancehall and reggae artistes to create music that can crossover
in the US market on a regular basis. We need to pool our talents and resources so that we can generate enough capital to reinvest in this industry so that we can better compete in the international marketplace and we are willing to work with almost everyone to make that happen," the release continued.

"Aidonia is one of the top young talents in Jamaica with a strong underground following, and we believe that we can get him to be the next superstar emerging out of Jamaica. We have two new products, not just rum, that will be hitting the marketplace soon and Aidonia is going to play a key role in marketing and endorsing these products. I will also assume management duties of Aidonia and Lav will remain as his road manager."

Todd already manages the artiste known as Jahvinci, a former member of Vybz Kartel's Portmore Empire.

"Jahvinci will also be endorsing products in the future once he continues to build his career with great songs. Anytime I say that a product is coming out, it will be coming out unlike some other people who just put out releases for a hype but fail to followup," he said.

Aidonia has grown into a powerful artiste in his own right with recent hits such as Ukku Bit, Lolly, Hundred Stab and We Run Uptown.

"I believe that this will be a great partnership because Corey has proven that he has the ability to market and promote dancehall artistes
and get them to a higher level. This is a competitive industry and it takes more than just talent and hard work to make it to the next level so with the
addition of Corey to our management structure, the ting tun up, the ting buck," Aidonia said.
