UMPG SIGNS KONDZILLA
9/3/19

UMPG has announced an exclusive, worldwide admin agreement with Brazilian executive and creator Konrad Dantas, and his entertainment company KondZilla.

A music and audiovisual success story, KondZilla is best known for bringing Brazilian funk into global mainstream culture. Initially launched as a YouTube channel in 2012, today KondZilla is a major entity whose holdings include KondZilla Films (music video production), KondZilla Records (label and publishing), KondZilla Licensing and KondZilla.com (lifestyle content website).

The company’s catalog spans nearly 600 titles across more than 50 artists. Surpassing a billion streams collectively, some of KondZilla’s biggest songs include “O Grave Bater”, “Encaixa” and “Rabiola” by MC Kevinho; “Oh quem voltou” by Dani Russo; “Pega a Receita” by MC Dede & MC Kevinho; “Solteiro até morrer” by MC Kekel; and “Abusadamente” by MC Gusta & MC DG.

“Konrad Dantas is a true force of nature. His passion and commitment to his dream were much bigger than the difficult circumstances he was born and raised in, and he has since created an Empire that shared Brazilian funk music throughout the world,” said Marcelo Falcão, Managing Director of UMPG Brazil.

Said Dantas: “I’m very happy to be part of the UMPG family, one of the world’s leading music publishing companies that will certainly contribute to KondZilla’s Publishing growth in the world.”
