The C.E.O.

As his level of expertise soared and the quality of his production improved, Richie transformed his home studio to the now existing record company, Lynx Entertainment. This happened in 2006. Signing himself on as the first artiste on the record label, he then proceeded to convince talented musicians who he thought he could work with to join up in his dream of establishing the most successful record label in Africa.

OJ Blaq and Asem were the next to sign on and from then till 2009, Irene Logan, Eazzy and Zigi all joined what Richie likes to call the ‘Lynx Family.’ The artistes on the record label have had critical and commercial success with songs such as ‘Frema’, ‘Pigaro’, ‘Runaway’, ‘Wengeze’, ‘No More Kpayor’, ‘You Say Wey Tin’ and ‘One Gal’ with the label winning the ‘Record label of the Year’ award at the Ghana Music Awards in 2009.

In 2010, the artistes on the Lynx Entertainment record label - Richie, ASEM, OJ Blaq, Eazzy and Zigi collaborated on Africa’s Moment, which was featured on Hello Afrika, Sony Music’s release in conjunction with the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The song was also featured in the Vodafone advert which staged the first ever flash mob in West Africa. Lynx Entertainment released ‘Back 2 Zero’ in July 2011.

The album featured all the artistes on the record label as well as several renowned Ghanaian musicians such as Gyedu Blay-Ambolley, Tinny, V.I.P, Okyeame Kwame, Efya, Trigmatic, Sonni Balli, EL, Jael Wiafe, Ayigbe Edem and Iwan. He signed a distribution deal with Rockstar 4000 in 2010 to have his music distributed worldwide by the Sony Music Group who administers the affairs of some of the biggest names in music.
