SOUTH BRISBANE, QLD, AUSTRALIA, April 6, 2012 /Stanford Who’s Who/– Mr. Ade Kukoyi, President of the Australia-Nigeria Business Council, is honored by Stanford Who’s Who today for his contributions to the performing arts and advocacy for protecting the Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property within the music industry.
Amongst his greatest achievements as co-Founder and Executive Director of Daki Budtcha Records, Mr. Kukoyi was responsible for establishing the firm as a growing independent recording and publishing company. His personal effort as an opportunist, and focused direction also laid the groundwork for Daki Budtcha’s expansion into the indigenous awareness and customary law arena. Regarded as a pioneer in this emerging area of law, Mr. Kukoyi is the co-author of “Going Digital 2000: Legal Issues for e-Commerce, Software and the Internet”.
Aside from his achievements as MD of Daki Budtcha, Mr. Kukoyi is also revered for his work as the Principal Advisor of the Turrbal People of Brisbane and Ningy Ningy People of the Redcliffe, Deception Bay area, roles that he has occupied since the 1990’s. Mr. Kukoyi’s primary intent as advisor remains embedded in finding the equilibrium between the cultural integrity of Daki Budtcha and its subsequent responsibility in the community. As such, Mr. Kukoyi and one of his most prized clients Maroochy Barambah, have catalyzed an increase in the involvement of both the Turrbal and Ningy Ningy Associations in versatile projects within their home homelands and between Brisbane.
Mr. Ade Kukoyi’s experience in the performing arts is further mentionable for his award as Associate Producer of “Black River”, the international award-winning opera film, starring Maroochy Barambah, and as the Producer and Director of the Goodwill Concert, which was held at the United Nations in honor of the International Year for the Worlds Indigenous People.
