Min­eral Boss Records’ CEO car­ries on hus­band’s legacy

The Star (Jamaica) - - Front Page -

Within the last two and half years af­ter the pass­ing of her hus­band/busi­ness part­ner Cleon ‘Corey’ Jones, Min­eral Boss Records (MBR) CEO Tawanna Jones has been try­ing to put her best foot for­ward with their record la­bel.

She ad­mit­ted that it hasn’t been an easy road mov­ing for­ward alone.

“Mov­ing for­ward without my sec­ond skin and my part­ner in ev­ery­thing is very hard. We had plans and goals to ac­com­plish to­gether. Lately, he has been in my dreams and my thoughts push­ing me to do what we had set off to do in the mu­sic in­dus­try,” said Jones.

CAR­RY­ING ON LEGACY

With the aim to still bring great­ness and carry on the legacy of her late hus­band and busi­ness part­ner, Jones picked up where they left off, or­gan­is­ing stage shows and pro­vid­ing a plat­form for upand-com­ing artistes to show­case their tal­ent without com­pet­ing against each other.

“I have an event called BreakThru Sun­days live on my In­sta­gram page. We go live from in­side my club and al­low tal­ents to show us what they have in store. It’s not a com­pe­ti­tion, it’s more like a tal­ent show­case.

Other pro­duc­ers and I will record as many as we can and will pro­vide spots for them to open up events for main acts hosted at my club,” said Jones.

MBR also inked a man­age­ment con­tract with tal­ented artiste Sus­pense, Mag­num Queen of

Dance­hall for 2017, and is get­ting ready to drop her new rhythm ti­tled Lottery Win­ner, as well as loads of singles from well-es­tab­lished artistes.

“I feel so good and en­cour­aged to carry on the legacy of Min­eral Boss Records for my hus­band and I; my dream is to see my hus­band’s work live on for­ever,” said Jones
