An agreement has been signed between Exotic Music Fiji (EMF) and the Voqa Ni Delaidokidoki Group (VNDG).

The agreement sees Exotic Music Fiji being given the exclusive rights to release all the group’s albums.

The VNDG released their seventh album this week with 500 CD copies being sold throughout all EMF outlets throughout the country.

EMF general manager, Avichal Prasad, said the CD has 12 Gospel songs.

“This is the biggest Gospel group in Fiji and after five years they have returned to the music scene and have chosen Exotic as the distributor of their albums,” he said.

“We thank the Dokidoki family for choosing to work with Exotic Music Fiji.”

Since the company’s established in 2015, Prasady says, they have worked with more than 300 artists- that is locally and abroad.

Prasad said they had opened their studio just to help out and promote local artists.

“People back in the rural areas can contact us if they need recording, and the company would come straight to their doorsteps.”

Prasad said their artists receive their royalty ( from the sales of their albums) every two months.

He said despite their hard work, piracy is something that is affecting not only their business but the music industry as well.

Prasad has urged people to keep on buying original CDs as to combat the increasing number of piracy.

“Many of our artists are not working and they’re supporting their family through the sales of their albums.”

EMF also do live recording of choirs, sigidrigi, Bhaijans, Kirtans, Logeets Qawali and the list goes on.

The EMF studio is based at Tebara Plaza in Nakasi and has 29 outlets throughout the country.

Kumar said artists or bands wanting to record an album should feel free contact them on their Facebook page Exotic Fiji Ltd/Exotic Music Fiji or by phone 3410300.
