8 December 2016 Entertainment
Bozoma Saint John the Ghanaian – American music executive was recently named by Billboard magazine as the world’s most powerful woman in music.
The 39-year-old Boss Lady is currently the head of global consumer marketing for iTunes and Apple Music.
Her story is one of perseverance and hard work. She moved to America when she was 13 and has over the years continuously carved a niche for herself – showing what it is to be a hard working black woman in a multi-faceted music industry.
Here’s what Billboard wrote about her:
“She joined the company through Beats, which Apple acquired three months after she started working there in 2014. Says Jimmy Iovine, who hired her: “She’s a force of nature. She walks it. She talks it. She knows what’s going on, whether it’s fashion, music, sports… That’s what attracted me to her. I didn’t need a technology person; I needed someone to sell a streaming service. And if she could sell me, she could sell anybody.”
