“I am thrilled and excited about our new partnership with powerhouse H.wood media, based in Los Angeles. As we embark on this collaborative journey, I am truly excited about the endless possibilities that lie ahead,” Okechukwu said in a statement. “I find Jeremy, John and Brian very inspiring and supportive. It’s a great pleasure to be working with partners that move so efficiently.”

Added Terzian, “H.wood media is about telling the stories behind the personalities who shape culture and Skepta is undeniably the perfect subject for us. His emotional and inspiring journey will resonate with audiences around the world and we are honored he entrusted us to tell his story and work with us on future storytelling.”

Skepta, a recipient of the prestigious Mercury Prize, made his first foray into the film world earlier this year with his short “Tribal Mark.” In an interview with Variety, the rapper said he would love to make a feature-length film one day: “Even if you listen to my albums, I always have skits, so I feel like I’ve always had doing a movie in my mind somewhere.”
