Audu Maikori is a Nigerian lawyer, entrepreneur, social activist, public speaker, and creative industry expert. He is most recognized as the Executive Vice Chairman of the Chocolate City Group, the mother Company of the leading African record label Chocolate City Entertainment.

Yet, despite all these achievements, what put him on the map is not any of this but his 40 million naira lawsuit against the Kaduna state government.

In May 2017, Audu Maikori accused the Kaduna State Government of violating his human rights after being arrested for allegedly inciting the public during the Southern Kaduna crisis. Maikori was arrested and detained for 24 hours for posting a false story on social media about killing five College of Education students in Southern Kaduna. The label boss later apologized for posting the story, adding that his driver relayed it to him, saying his (driver) brother was among the victims.

After an ongoing lawsuit, the court ruled in his favor and ordered the Kaduna state government to pay N10.5m as damages. They ultimately decided to settle out of court. Nothing has been heard about the case since.

What Has Audu Maikori Been Up To?

Since then, Audu Maikori has moved on to bigger and better things in his career. In 2020, he received the Legacy Emerging Leadership Award from the Legacy Global Awards.

In January 2021, he became a Member of the Board of Advisors Esaiyo Inc, a platform that creates ‘social identities’ for objects and stores them on the blockchain.

In March of 2021, Audu Maikori added another feather to his cap as a Board Member of Limitless Studios, a global animation studio producing diverse and inclusive content for kids worldwide.

A year later, in March 2022, he Co-founded Pixel Ray Studios, a Film production and media content consultancy company.

In July this year, he was one of the speakers in the CIIF Creative Talks held online, where he and other speakers talked about the Business of festivals and Carnivals.

Aud Maikori’s Twitter account is mostly centered around the music industry and a few political tweets. He is also very active in Clubhouse, a social media platform where users communicate in audio in chat rooms. His humanitarian work as the fundraising manager for the Southern Kaduna Relief Group is still ongoing, just like his other projects. We will likely see more of the former music record label executive in the coming years or even months.
