New local show focuses on positive music

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 and BOUNCE 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," Kojo says. "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.”
