Obiukwu Chinedu John aka Nedjon is one passionate individual about all things music. He is a proven songwriter in his native home town of Lagos, Nigeria. He has a diverse and wide skill set that he calls on regularly when acting as Business Development Manager for Ordior Africa. He helps develop new markets, including: new content development, A & R for new artists, digital marketing skills, managing a wide and varied roster, and the communication issues that occur on a daily basis.

He is enthusiastic and decisive, he’s the extra-mile runner, and he believes that excellence has no finish line. He is an example of a passionate leader with high marketing and people skills, courage and thoughts driven by possibility. He is creative, self-starting, and a trust worthy individual. He has been with Ordior since 2016. In this short time, he has developed strong partnerships locally in Africa and in the UK, USA and Australia, all to develop new markets and opportunities for Ordior. He is also an invaluable asset to our partner company Blue Pie, contributing significantly to the African artist and label rosters.

Over the past several years, Nedjon developed a persistent spirit believing that for a fulfilled life style, it is important we live life deliberately because nothing “just happens”. He has a degree in statistics from the prestigious Abia State University Uturu Nigeria. He is excellent with numbers, and managing Ordior’s business development needs, as well as the various financial reporting needs for Blue Pie’s African roster.

In a few short years with Blue Pie and Ordior, he has built a strong catalogue of artists. He has worked with such leading artists including the legendary 2baba, Mr P, Omawumi, Timaya, Cobhams, Sean Tizzle, MusikGenie, Coson, Mavins Record, One House Music and Sound, List Entertainment and many more. This is not only important for expanding Blue Pie’s repertoire, but also allowing Ordior to protect the rights of more musicians across the world- fulfilling our mission on a grander scale.

Nedjon’s recording credits are just as amazing, including working and recording with greats like OJB JAZEREEL, UGLY, MAYTRONOMY, RUFF COIN (NWA ABA) & D’ZARA on his first Album titled ‘’NO KOLO’’. This led to working on two beautiful, recent, single tracks to his credit (‘’I DO’’, ‘’You Be God’’) in 2018.  Not one to stand still, he is also featured in the Nigeria TV Series “Tinsel”, and “Yours Faithfully”.

Nedjon works with the Business Development Director for Africa, Mr Jude Cheidu Ugbaja, as well as the Blue Pie & Ordior Boards, to expand and grow new markets in Africa. He oversees a large roster of artists and labels for West Africa. In recent times has been responsible for some of the biggest artists in Africa, signing with both Blue Pie Records and DJ Central Records. He has been a definitive asset to Ordior over the years, and without him we wouldn’t have grown internationally at the rate which we have.
