Jacksonville University alumna Shadae Myers and current senior film student, Brianna Williams, are currently teaming up with CW17 for a new music video countdown show, “Music 4 U.”

Music 4 U (M4U) premieres on the CW17 network on Sunday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m.

Show creator and M4U host Kojo will interview local artists, entertainers and personalities in the Jacksonville community. The half-hour show includes “The Hot List” which includes a Top 5 countdown of music videos chosen by viewers who vote weekly via the M4U website.

M4U also features a fashion segment hosted by “Mz London” also known as JU alum, Shadae Myers.

The premiere episodes will include interviews with guests such as Jacksonville Jaguars’ lineman Jeremy Mincey, Billboard Top 100 charting artist J.Dash and many more.

Kojo, a Kentucky native, came to Jacksonville with a passion for music and a love for the city. After encountering a few setbacks in his own music career he developed the vision for a show that would provide exposure for local artists.

The show’s goal is to create opportunities so that artists will stay in Jacksonville rather than move to Atlanta, New York or Los Angeles to pursue their careers.

“We’re giving Jacksonville something it’s never seen before,” said Kojo. “We not only want to showcase local talent, we want to attract talent to the city and spotlight Jacksonville as a thriving hub for pursuing a music career.”
