(Los Angeles, California – September 21st, 2021) – Long-time music executive Alonzo Robinson has a history of finding and signing talent. With over 20 years in the music game, he co-founded ASCAP's "Create Music Series" while working with some of the biggest names in music. He was honored at The West Coast Hip Hop Awards (2012) and celebrated in Urban Network Magazine (2007) as a "Top PRO Executive". He joins the BTOPENT team and will consult and refer groups for distribution under his Renegade Runn Entertainment umbrella. His vast knowledge of marketing, promotion, and brand awareness will add value to an already strong team.
Alonzo's or "Zo" as he is affectionately called has long ties with Big Top Entertainment that run over 14 years. He was the first person to recognize BTOPENT's CEO, and producer Curtis Johnson back when he and COO Jay Johnson were shopping material. He was so impressed with what he heard that he would arrange an impromptu meeting with then, Underdog Entertainment President and current Grammy President, Harvey Mason Sr, as well as Executive VP of Rondor/Universal Kevin Hall. "Jay and I never forgot the impression Alonzo made on us years ago, and are honored to come full circle with adding his talent to our organization", states Curtis Johnson. To add more intrigue, Alonzo also introduced Curtis and Jay to current BTOPENT's President, Bobby Robinson. With two Johnson's and two Robinson's, this was a match waiting to happen.
