Meet The Pakistani Managing Social Media Marketing of Akon’s ‘Millionaire Dance’ Show

Meet Hamza Ayub, a graduate of Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) who ended up managing the social media marketing for universally acclaimed singer Akon.

After graduating from LUMS Pakistan, Hamza went to China and started pursuing his masters at the Peking University. Being an entrepreneur, he had always wanted to start up his own thing. And because his university was based in Shenzhen (the silicon valley of China), this was a perfect opportunity for him.

During his stay in China, Hamza started a small company InnoMagi which provided commercials for other local startups in the area. Being a filmmaker by trade, this was a dream come true for the youngster.

But that isn’t all, one day he ended up filming the Richard Chiang, CEO of KonLive, Akon’s company in China. The SEO noticed him and asked him about his work. It was then when he revealed that he was making commercials for small companies and promoted them through social media marketing.

This caught the interest of Richard Chiang and he offered him a contract to manage the YouTube page of Akon’s upcoming show Millionaire Dance.

Millionaire Dance will allow Hamza to capture China through the eyes of big name celebrities like Akon himself, B. Howard (son of Micheal Jackson), Justin Timberlake and Afrojack.
