Whitney Asomani and Tashi Demi (pictured, L-R) have launched the Twenty:Two marketing and creative agency.
As exclusively revealed in the latest issue of Music Week, the pair are aiming to “reform conventional marketing methods”.
“Twenty:Two prides itself on delivering an agency that actively represents the modern landscape in providing indispensable access to independent marketeers with the mileage and experience in successful international and domestic campaigns,” said a statement.
The two respected executives met at Sony Music in 2018 after taking up positions within Since ‘93 within RCA, where they worked across talent included Aitch, Loski, Travis Scott, Future, NSG, EYK, Brockhampton, Scribz Riley and Lolo Zouai.
A BRIT School and UAL alumni, Asomani worked in celebrity and event PR before going into a six-year stint within music teams at broadcast networks ITV & BT Sport. She has focused on working with artists from a marketing and management perspective.
Asomani has worked with the likes of Burna Boy, M.O, Sugababes, NSG, Brockhampton and a string of chart successes from the Since ’93/RCA roster.
She said: “My priorities are black music and culture and creating access into the field for less privileged individuals.”
