Help support my Booster Campaign to obtain legal representation @ http://www.booster.com/undercoloroflaw

 

WHO WOULD YOU TURN TO?

Each of these individuals and members of certain groups have assisted directly or indirectly in the deprivation of rights,through or by either inaction or actions (up to and including acts listed; intimidation, violation of civil rights, corruption, encouraged public persecution, the raping of women and children. Because of their acts, inaction or misrepresentation of events or refusal to follow or uphold the law!

 

The police and officials have not responded to or addressed multiple complaints and allegations from the daughter of slain Police Office, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski because whoever is behind this is in position to hide the truth.

 
All violations from and including; civil rights violations, mail tampering, intimidation, rape and murder have been ignored.

**This is one long list that consist of very prominent attorney’s, groups and organizations. **
 
I can understand why it is so important for this information to remain hidden. If this was to be released, it would reflect poorly on each entity. It is probably because these are the same entities that are supposed to uphold and protect the rights of the people; yet, they were unwilling to enforce the laws.

Possibly Jay Sloane has some involvement due to past association.

Las Vegas F.B.I., D.O.J., U.S. Postmaster, and more were contacted with supporting documents but ignored the blatant violations of rights.

FACT: Some of these individuals were associated with or represented other groups who attempted to use these atrocities  for their own purposes and/or monetary gain. These groups are known for supporting the degradation of women.

Because these groups could not profit, I have been led to believe that they are threatening all other groups or individuals from assisting.
 

WHY IS IT THAT ALL OF THE MEN INVOLVED ARE ALLOWED TO PROFIT AND LIVE UNSCATHED AFTER THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO WHAT HAS LED TO CONTINUED VIOLATIONS?

Don’t hide behind your money, positions and friends! Be the men that you were when you made the decisions to place blame, steal, ignore, etc…

Why hide? Go ahead and let everyone see you help hold down individuals while you and the public screws them out of their dignity, rob them of their rights, etc… I would like to hear what reasons it is that you provide your family to explain your actions.

But I have to tell my loved ones to be careful and don’t send that child to public school because ‘my public’ harasses me with homeless jokes, rape jokes, etc…

AM I SUPPOSED TO RUN TO ANY ONE OF THESE INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS AFTER THEY HAVE PROFITED FROM THESE ATROCITIES OR WORSE PLACING BLAME FOR THEIR LOSSES?

What if you were posted up, displayed and misrepresented without your knowledge or consent?

How would you react if you lived in a world where ANYONE could do ANYTHING to you for decades and no one would interfere or stop them because the ‘system’ is profiting from stealing your life?

No one has ever said anything to me regarding why I have to be subjected to having no rights to Life, Liberty and Justice!

Well this is being done openly from Michigan to Atlanta and currently here in Las Vegas, NV. Yeah, I can’t wait to hear this…

With all of the Puppet Masters – WHO WOULD YOU TO TURN TO?

E.O.A.A WEEKLY: Friday, November 28, 2014, Written by Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace

WHO WOULD YOU TO TURN TO?

IN ADDITION TO OFFICIALS IGNORING BLATANT CRIMINAL ACTS,

I HAVE HAD TO FIGHT EVERYONE WHILE VIOLENCE CONTINUES 
I HAVE HAD TO LISTEN TO MY 40+ MUSICAL LYRICS AND MELODIES ON THE RADIO FOR DECADES WITHOUT RECEIVING ANY ROYALTIES! OFFICIALS ON ONE SIDE WHILE THESE ENTITIES ON THE OTHER…!
The only game being played in 
 

MUSIC BUSINESS: ‘Puppet Masters’ and ‘Musical Chairs’ 

Let’s explain how the music industry plays Musical Chairs. I had to see who was running the label back when I was under contract. I had to know who profited from this mess.
Of course, these individuals listed below were definitely involved and/or aware of publishing contracts,  song submissions, ‘gutted’ musical works and actions which led to multiple Copyright Infringements:
 
Richard Blackstone    
 
Richard Blackstone
Dave Renzer

These were some of the same people who shortly after profiting, began transferring me back and forth over the phone (keeping me on speakerphone) while rejoicing, mocking and laughing about Zomba being Number 1.


Follow The Money!!!

 

        Paul Katz 
 
Paul Katz was C.C.’d on my Co-Publishing contract advance:





 

 


Moving On Up The Line
The owner’s of the company were  –
 Clive Ian Calder
 
 
 
After an unspecified “ethical disagreement,” Calder bought 
Simon’s stake in Zomba and became the sole owner in 1990.

 

I was signed to Zomba in 1993 and I think I have an idea of what was 
meant by ‘ethical disagreement.

 

In the late nineties, Jive expanded its success to include teen pop 
phenomenons such as Backstreet Boys, ‘N Sync and Britney 
 
Spears, all of which topped the charts. In 2002 he sold Zomba for 
 
US$2.74 billion to the German-based media group Bertelsmann.
 
Though he was offered a position with BMG, he instead chose to 
 
stay on temporarily as an advisor during the integration period, 
 
but left the business in 2003. The Jive Records brand was 
 
discontinued in October 2011, with their artists being moved 
 
to RCA Records.
 
AND
 
Ralph Simon
 
Simon co-founded the independent Zomba Group of music 
companies (now a subsidiary of Sony Music Entertainment) 
with Clive Calder in the 1970s. In the mid-90s, he was 
Executive Vice President of Capitol Records and Blue Note 
Records in Hollywood and started EMI Music’s global New 
Media division.
On May 20, 1996, I filed a lawsuit against BMI, Zomba and Jive because of their lack of 
response to my request as to how BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive have released 
songs which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights. I submitted these lyrics and melodies to Zomba. Although people are moved like musical chairs, it is easy to see how moving employees back and forth from BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive may have gained access to  songs which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights. I sent these lyrics to Zomba; which they deny receiving. 
Conveniently their denials were received in envelopes marked ‘Comics’.

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE A GAME TO YOU?

I assure you that this is no game. Here I am twenty plus years later…still fighting for scraps and being stripped of everything from housing to basic necessities for decades.

This is not a matter of not having Copyrights!!!
This is not a matter of not seeking or having Legal Representation!!!
This is not an issue of signing away percentages because it was only
a Single 50/50 Co-Publishing Agreement with Zomba, a Major Music Publishing!
NO MANAGEMENT AGREEMENTS OR CONTRACTS!
Not only did this Major Music publisher Neglect to Protect their own 
Writer but Failed to Pursue Interest in Copyright Infringements
associated to hundreds of millions of dollars…
Why do you think that a company that has a (50) Fifty Percent Interest in Musical Works would actually refuse to pursue claims which were supported by factual documentation, split-sheets,
certified mail receipts and certified, sealed copyrights?
Why is it while you attempt to pursue your claims and allegations, you are met with Violence, Harassment, Accusations and Coincidental Hardships? 

I may not have the money to advertise, promote and market like I need to but this is unacceptable! I don’t want to hear no words. There is no excuse for this mess to continue. I never plotted to hurt anyone and this should have been resolved decades ago. I am an unaligned female without connections but nobody should be able to deprive anyone of the rights and ability to receive or pursue proper resolution.

THIS ENTIRE PROCESS IS SHADY, UNETHICAL, EXTREMELY QUESTIONABLE AND ILLEGAL…

Nobody asked or explained  anything to me Before or After I began to be victimized;

privately or publicly! I never plotted to hurt anyone and this should have been resolved decades ago.

I, Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace am an unaligned female without connections but nobody should be able to deprive anyone of the rights and ability to receive or pursue proper resolution REGARDLESS OF SEX, RACE OR FAMILY BACKGROUND.

WHO WOULD YOU BE ABLE TO TURN TO?

There are always tragic incidents that are seemingly close to times where I have felt pressure to ‘stop,’  ‘let go’ or received strong messages to just stop pursuing my plight for justice. It is if others are being hurt in an effort to persuade others to help harm me and my family. Of course bad things happen but there are an increasing amount of coincidences.
There is another instance where it was as if there may have been some interest in finally resolving this nightmare or people were doing the same things that have been done for decades; wherein, numbers are referenced but they are soon followed by violence or jokes and mocking.
In order for you to see it for what it actually is, you must consider the facts presented.
Considering all of the important and well connected individuals involved in assisting with these atrocities for financial gain, am I supposed to run to any one of these people listed for help. If they are in a position to assist, maybe they should have acted BEFORE the raping of women and children, pillaging, cover-ups, corruption, robbing and murders.

Background

My father, Robert Heard allegedly killed a Detroit Police Office, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski.
Although my in-laws were directly related to the chief of police of Detroit, I never put it together that maybe this was questionable being that my estranged father was serving a life sentence.
I was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses (Kingdom Hall out of Brooklyn, NY) so I was already raised isolated and separate from others. I wrote to music track initially provide by Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus. Lee Marcus brother was a MI police officer. My in-laws relocated for a period in GA.
The police departments spanning from GA were acting under color of law when they willfully executed a false report to secure a warrant. This illegally obtained warrant has been used to take housing and was used as means to hinder employment and take jobs.
MI – Judge Bernard Friedman, ignored severity of obstruction of justice, murders, rapes, corruption. This judge literally blamed actual violent events as if it was just a side effect from a cystectomy and as if it was not even happening. The search warrant says different.
GA – Judge William Duffey, (judges switched after Request for summary judgement entered by plaintiff. Judge ignored clerk’s misconduct.
F.B.I. Local Offices contacted but ignored severity of obstruction of justice, murders, rapes, intimidation, civil rights violated, corruption that has been allowed to continue for decades.
D.O.J. contacted multiple times throughout the entire 2-3 decades of major violations but ignored.
Officials across state lines are supporting this modern day enslavement by willfully and deliberately ignoring multiple severe criminal acts and have committed acts themselves.
My mother raised us as Jehovah’s Witnesses (located out of Brooklyn, NY).
My father, Robert Heard was sentence to a Life sentence for allegedly killing a police officer.
My best friend’s father was a police officer by the name.
My then husband was related to then Chief of Police, Benny Napoleon.
I’m sure that these officials have presented all kinds of reasons to justify violations but never once has anyone even approached me or said anything and when I approached any of these agencies (including, the DOJ who represents the government) or any police agencies (FBI, etc.)…no one acknowledges valid claims.
Due to major officials (judges, police entities, etc…) and other parties involvement…civil rights violations, use of violence and repeated instances where obstruction of justice, the statute of limitations are not applicable are being ignored and implemented in an attempt to cover atrocities for decades.
I am not sure if you can help because my allegations are against major entities. I am going to the F.B.I. tomorrow but I thought that I would reach out once more for some kind of legal advice.
Due to major officials (judges, police entities, etc…) and other parties involvement…civil rights violations, use of violence and repeated instances where obstruction of justice, the statute of limitations are not applicable are being ignored and implemented in an attempt to cover atrocities for decades.
This case involves multiple major entities and some ‘acting under color of law.’
For decades and repeatedly, I have been placed in situations where it is implied that this heinous situation will be addressed but it never comes. Only continued mail tampering, email interruption, misrepresentation and blocks that are keeping me subjected, alienated and uninformed, these crimes and violations of my privacy continues.
I still have not heard from the human rights committee… not even a confirmation email.
I NEVER GAVE PERMISSION FOR THIS BECAUSE I WAS
NEVER ASKED! 
As
a teenager, I began a telephone relationship with Jay Sloane, a DJ at a local
radio station.
I
signed a recording deal with a Sanchez as a part of a female group (never
developed into anything).
As
a young adult (prior to marriage), I also had unpleasant, embarrassing sexual
contact with the guys who were with the female rapper, Roxanne/Roxanne or was
it The Real Roxanne out of NY.
Initially,
these were the only times where I had any contact with music industry personnel
prior to meeting with Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus.
I
wrote my first lyrics to tracks provided by them of which one was placed on
major television sitcom. Lee Marcus family was definitely associated with the
Detroit Police through his brother per him. Neither; Lee Marcus or Jake Salazar
offered any contract but just wanted lyrics written to music tracks.
Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus never offered contract and disappeared for some time.
This event was followed by the droves of local production teams coming under the
pretense of good will while working together to deceive – as mentioned in Music
Business: It’s a Dirty Game!
Out of the many groups that I worked with, the Larry Hatcher, Larry ‘Roc’ Campbell
issue developed being that I was not signed to either. Larry Hatcher was
introduced through my husband’s family. I would have to assume that he was
initially associated with them but why would he want me to leave Detroit and
move to California unless he was trying to switch teams for whatever reasons.
That was a desperate move to lift my legs up and do me that way but combined
with my family’s response… it worked because I was tore up and almost went.
Local entities began to speak negative about Larry Hatcher being no good and dangerous.
On January 31, 1995, I was home in my kitchen cooking dinner and there was a knock
at the door. The officer held up a search warrant in connection to a double
homicide.
There was a double homicide at 15721 Telegraph on January 21, 1995. Left at the Scene
was a white canvas bag containing one full metal jacketed 9mm round. This round
watched 4 shell casings found by the bodies of the deceased. Attached to the
canvas bag was a TWA baggage tag for flight 355 Nov.11, 1994 and a Computer
read out for passenger T. Lovelace.
Per search, warrant served on January 31, 1995 – Affiant contacted Trans World
Airlines and learned that a Tiwanda Lovelace and a Curtis Lovelace had departed
Kennedy Airport in New York on flight 355 and arrived At Metro Airport Detroit
on November 11, 1994. Apparently, some jackass took my luggage tag from my trip
to NY and left it at the crime scene.
While in New York in November 1994, my home was shot up with my children inside.
Notice of Betrayal Letter sent to Zomba/Jive regarding dated February 23, 1995 Letter I sent to Zomba regarding blatant betrayal from their staff after Kymberlee Thornton expressed sudden disapproval of works which was in
opposition to previous expressed satisfaction.
The Search Warrant advised that I had been under surveillance. I was released immediately.
I’ve had files removed and received threats since 03/95.
Shortly afterward, I kept hearing about a story of someone hurting people by burning their toes, so I don’t know if they are threatening me again or what. I was being blamed again for some actions of others. If I am kept in the dark, how am I supposed to know what is going on. Unfortunately, I have to wait till the public lashes out at me in secret and then try to determine if they are just painting a picture to intimidate. 
‘I heard the people on the radio talking about the toes and I lashed out in anger
at them threatening me or trying to instill me with fear. All I know is that I
hated listening to the radio – assholes.’ ‘They use their powers for bad.
August 1995 Journal entry:
‘Leap of faith, leap on these with that bullshit! So I guess this means that I am
still wounded pretty badly.’
While situations are presented to some of the public one way, while at every turn behind the scenes is the constant harassment, intimidations and threats. It is true that one must be able to overcome and handle duress in order to become successful but when your stress becomes supernatural and your hardships are deliberately unbearable.
Then they were still playing that game where they would pretend to be getting ready to
fix this mess and give me my rights to privacy along with the Dangling Carrot –
The Deal. Followed by releasing the public on me to mock and attack. In
addition to everything that was going on…
October 24,
1995 Envelope from Zomba:
The envelopes with the words ‘comics’ began…
Another example of how haters can misrepresent situations…
Amidst all the drama, on August 15, 1996 my oldest child was outside playing outside
in front of the house when one of my hate-filled neighbor’s children chased him
into the street.
Conveniently, he was struck by a vehicle and thrown into the air to land on the concrete.
What made this different from any accidental automobile collision was the
drivers’ response. Sharon Deasfernandez, the driver got out of her car with
this cold, angry expression on her face.
I’m not a racist but Detroit is predominantly African American city so I thought it was odd that she was of Hispanic decent being that I never really knew that I had crossed paths with anyone except Jake Salazar.
Was there an issue behind the scenes between Jake Salazar and Lee Marcus that was escalating?
Had my signing with Zomba interfered with others plans? Why pretend not to have my
lyrics and melodies after we discussed each work?
Was the double homicide supposed to be used to send me away while the others profited?
I had heard that their intentions were to avenge or retaliate against me for allegedly lying on Powell and others, (one of their big figures in their community in Detroit).
I assure you that I kept written records, time stamped journals and signed paperwork regarding what happened to me. Simply having more family, friends and supporters does not make your or your people’s actions justifiable.
[6] Jake Salazar was a co-founder of the Tempo Music Group. A coalition of independent record companies owned by veteran industry professionals and celebrities such as Anita Baker/Michael Powell, Sylvia Moy, Martha
Reeves, Isaiah Thomas, Thomas Hearns, John Salley, Lee Marcus, and Leonard Jones among
other prominent business colleagues.
Jake has been a consultant to over forty record labels and for many of the industries’ major artists and manages the careers of a chosen few. Jake has been a consultant to over forty record labels and for many of the industries’

Hip-Hop/Rap artist Baby Blue, A.K.A. Big Nic on Big Money Records produced by Jake’s son, Jake
“Chacho” Salazar, III. All distributed through an arrangement with Universal. 
 
Prior administrative obligations were for Grammy Winner Little Joe/Polygram Records, Grammy Winner Cesar Rosas/Los Lobos/Warner Bros. Records, Platinum artist Tierra/MCA Records and DeLeon Music Publishing/Peer Publishing.

**This is one long list that consist of very prominent attorney’s, groups and organizations. **

I can understand why it is so important for this information to remain hidden. If this was to be released, it would reflect poorly on each entity. It is probably because these are the same entities that are supposed to uphold and protect the rights of the people; yet, they were unwilling to enforce the laws.

Possibly Jay Sloane has some involvement due to past association.

Las Vegas F.B.I., D.O.J., U.S. Postmaster, and more were contacted with supporting documents but ignored the blatant violations of rights.

Some of these individuals were associated with or represented other groups who attempted to use these atrocities  for their own purposes and/or monetary gain. These groups are known for supporting the degradation of women.

 

WHY IS IT THAT ALL OF THE MEN INVOLVED ARE ALLOWED TO PROFIT AND LIVE UNSCATHED AFTER THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS TO WHAT HAS LED TO CONTINUED VIOLATIONS?

Don’t hide behind your money, positions and friends! Be the men that you were when you made the decisions to place blame, steal, ignore, etc…

Why hide? Go ahead and let everyone see you help hold down individuals while you and the public screws them out of their dignity, rob them of their rights, etc… I would like to hear what reasons it is that you provide your family to explain your actions.

But I have to tell my loved ones to be careful and don’t send that child to public school because ‘my public’ harasses me with homeless jokes, rape jokes, etc…

Zomba Group of Companies

Zomba Label Group
Zomba Group of Companies logo.jpg
Parent company Sony Music Entertainment
Founded 1975[1][2]
Founder Clive CalderRalph Simon
Status Defunct
Distributor(s) Sony Music Entertainment
Genre Various
Country of origin United Kingdom
Location London, EnglandNew York, NYNashville, TN
Official website Zomba Label Group.com
The Zomba Group of Companies (sometimes referred to as Zomba Music Group or just Zomba Group)[3] was a music group and division which was owned by and operated under Sony Music Entertainment. The division was renamed to Jive Label Group in 2009[4] and was placed under the RCA/Jive Label Group umbrella. In 2011, the RCA/Jive Label Group was split in half. Multiple Jive Label Group artists were moved to Epic Records while others stayed with Jive as it moved under the RCA Music Group. In October 2011 Jive Records was shut down and their artists were moved to RCA Records.[5]
Founded independently in the mid-seventies by Clive Calder and Ralph Simon, the group has had interests in music release, distribution, production, publishing, equipment rental, recording studios, and artist management. Though the financial structure and annual revenue of Zomba during the company’s independent period was probably only known to CEO Clive Calder (the company was registered privately offshore in the Dutch Antilles[1]), Zomba was widely regarded as the most successful of the independent music companies.
The group is probably best known for its role in developing some of the most popular forms of music, such as hip-hop in the 1980s, and the teen pop/boy band phenomenon in the late 1990s through their first record label Jive, though they have also had substantial activities in both the Christian and gospel music field. Calder and Simon both served as CEOs until 1990 when Calder bought out Simon’s share and ran the company himself until 2002. In 2002, BMG purchased the company and subsequently restructured the labels under the umbrella company Zomba Label Group, which was the most public face of the company. The label group served as a parent for many different labels including Jive, SilvertoneVolcano and LaFace.

History[edit]

South African Roots: Calder, Simon and Lange[edit]

In late 1971, Clive Calder and Ralph Simon began their two-decade partnership in forming businesses in record production and promotion, music publishing, artist management and concert promotion in South Africa.[1] Because of the market in South Africa, there was a need to branch out into various aspects of the business, instead of just focusing on one aspect of the industry. “You couldn’t do just one thing. It was too small,” explained David Gresham, CEO of David Gresham Record Company. “This is not a country where you have a million-seller. A No. 1 record is a 10,000 unit seller. That only pays the rent for a month or two.”[6] While almost mandatory in South Africa, this early style of music company would be adapted to other markets throughout the companies history, and would become a staple of Calder’s managing legacy.

Early companies formed by Calder and Simon were Sagittarius Management and Clive Calder Productions (CCP).[1] CCP was distributed by EMI Records South Africa who purchased the company in 1972. Although Calder has no stake in it now, it still exists as a wholly owned subsidiary of EMI, specializing in the recording, development and marketing of domestic artists. Calder’s relationship with EMI began when he had been an A&R Manager at EMI South Africa for eighteen months. There he had signed some big groups for the time such as Freedom’s Children and the Otis Waygood Blues Band.[6] During this time, Calder was also a bassist in a few bands. He formed the Four Dukes and the In Crowd with EMI artist Peter Vee, whom he also produced. Calder eventually paired Lee with a young producer named Mutt Lange, who began producing songs for Calder at CCP, including the local hit “Sunday Monday Tuesday” by Jessica Jones.[1]

Zomba in London[edit]

The trio of Calder, Simon and Lange decided in 1974 that they had to get out of South Africa. “We were politically very much opposed to the old apartheid regime” says Simon. They pooled together what little money they had and moved to London.[7] Having landed right in the middle of the British punk rock movement, they felt their experience would not be best utilized in marketing and promotion in such a different context. Instead, they opted to create a publishing company and Zomba Corporation was officially registered in Switzerland in 1975, operating out of Calder’s bedroom space in London.[1][2] The name “Zomba” referred to the capital of African country Malawi (Lilongwe superseded Zomba as Malawi’s capital in 1974).[8]

Next, Calder and Simon began looking for songwriters. The first was Henri Belolo, the French producer who helped create the Village People. Zomba became the disco group’s British publisher. Though the band had been turned down by a few UK labels, Calder and Simon thought they could retain the most control of Zomba if they stayed in the publishing and management business, allowing other labels to release their artists’ music.[7] Meanwhile, Lange was building a name for himself as a producer, with albums by theBoomtown Rats, Graham Parker and eventually AC/DC’s 1979 Highway to Hell, his breakthrough album.[9] This led to Lange becoming one of the world’s leading hard-rock producers, later adding Def Leppard, Foreigner and Bryan Adams to his resume. For Zomba, this meant increased exposure and credibility leading to many new producer and songwriter management deals. Additionally, artists would sign publishing deals, giving their publishing company a constantly burgeoning collection.[7]

In early 1978, Zomba opened offices in New York City and began looking for more artists and songwriters.[10] Clive Davis was one of the first to contact the group, who used his recently formed Arista Records to distribute Zomba artists. The first major signing was Billy Ocean.[7] Over the next few years, Zomba’s songwriters hit it big and the publishing profits kicked in, marking the beginning of the company’s first major expansion into record labels. Though Davis wanted Calder to head his West Coast A&R operations, Calder had a different plans altogether, and instead presented Jive Records to Davis.

Jive: taking a chance with rap[edit]

Arista had been having trouble pushing rock acts in the US, and Clive Davis had hoped that with Zomba’s Mutt Lange connection, Jive would fill that role. However, Calder had other ideas. In 1981, Jive began operations by releasing British dance and pop music such as Q-Feel, A Flock of Seagulls and Tight Fit. By 1982, Calder was introduced to a young fresh college graduate named Barry Weiss who, for his job interview with Zomba, took Calder out to hip-hop and black clubs all over New York City. Calder was immediately impressed with the man and had him scanning sales data all over the country searching for unknown acts on small labels selling large numbers. Calder got one of his songwriters Thomas Dolby to create a catchy hook for a local DJ Mr. Magic to rap over. Mr. Magic had to cancel at the last minute, but fortunately he knew another rapper, Jalil Hutchins. Weiss’s stress level shot up when Hutchins came to the session with another unknown rapper named Ecstasy and no rhymes. After two days, the group created and recorded “Magic’s Wand” which turned into a hit single. Weiss named the group Houdini, but Calder changed it to Whodini. Calder flew the group to London to record an album, then to Germany to record with producer Konrad “Conny” Plank of Devo and Ultravox fame. While the group would eventually leave Jive after a few albums, the early success resulted in Jive becoming a label with a focus on hip-hop artists throughout eighties. At a time when the record establishment wouldn’t touch “ghetto” music like rap, a white South African successfully marketed some of the edgiest black music.[9]

After Whodini, Jive began signing other rap artists into the later half of the decade. Boogie Down Productions was signed on the strength of their first record Criminal Minded, and their Jive debut By All Means Necessary was released in 1988.[11] Young West Coast rapper Too Short was picked up by Jive after his independently released Born to Mack sold over 50,000 copies. Jive gave the album national distribution which led to gold status, and then quickly issued his follow up Life Is…Too Short which achieved platinum status.[12]Meanwhile, Jive signed DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince in 1986 and released their debut Rock the House. The duo was a great success for Jive, helping make rap more accessible.

Jive continued supporting rap artists into the nineties. Most of the aforementioned groups continued on Jive into the next decade. KRS-One, the primary force behind Boogie Down Productions, released a string solo albums with Jive beginning with Return of the Boom Bap in 1993.[13] In 1991, Jive signed R&B artist R. Kelly who, along with his backing band Public Announcement, released their debut Born into the 90’s in early 1992. R. Kelly’s began his solo career with 12 Play in 1993 and continues to release with Jive today.[14] A Tribe Called Quest was signed by Jive in 1989 following a successful independently released single “Description of a Fool.” Their debut album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm was released by Jive in 1990 and framed the group as one of the most intelligent rap groups.[15] Many other rap and R&B artists were signed throughout the eighties and nineties before the teen-pop explosion in the later half of the decade.

Expansion[edit]

By 1990, Zomba was worth $225 million with over fifty companies. Contrary to most other record businesses at the time, Zomba spared no time with frills. “The Jive offices were crummy, cardboard desks. They just really did everything on the cheap”, says attorney Gary Stiffelman. The company began to attract more major label attention when EMI attempted to buy the company, but was ultimately turned down.[7][8] This period also saw Ralph Simon leaving Zomba at the start of the decade. Through an unspecified “ethical disagreement”, Calder and Simon ended their relationship of over two decades.[7] Calder bought out Simon’s half of the company and subsequently gained full control of the company.[1] In late 1991, BMG furthered its relationship with Zomba buy purchasing a 25% stake in their music publishing business, allowing them to sub-publish Zomba compositions in foreign markets.[1] BMG continued with a 20% purchase of Zomba’s records division in 1996.[16]

Building on the successes of the Jive label, Zomba began expanding its reach by purchasing and creating new labels, and by creating new divisions that helped expose more people to Zomba artists and services. In 1988, Andrew Lauder formed the UK-based Silvertone Records under the Zomba Group. While Jive focused on hip hop, Silvertone focused on more rock-oriented music. The label’s roster was initially bolstered by The Stone Roses, but quickly expanded to include blues, acoustic, and roots music.

[1] Other artists featured early on Silvertone include John Lee Hooker, J.J. Cale and The Men They Couldn’t Hang. This period also saw one of the few times that Zomba attempted cracking the classical music market. In 1992, Zomba purchased UK classical music group Conifer Classics with the aide of the group’s head Alison Wenham. Though the deal seemed to be solid, Zomba sold the company to BMG in 1995.[1] Classical music activities have remained minimal[clarification needed] within the company since then. Building on existing publishing deals, Zomba briefly co-owned the UK label Sanctuary Records. While the co-ownership only lasted between 1989 and 1991, the two companies continued dealing together in other avenues, including a publishing deal with Sanctuary artists Iron Maiden.[1] In 1998, Zomba purchased a 50% stake in the troubled label Volcano Entertainment (called Freeworld at the time). The label had been under financial pressure due to various reasons, including a lawsuit from flagship artist Tool. The purchase was shared with management firm Q-Prime, though shortly after they sold their half to Zomba, making Volcano a wholly owned subsidiary. The first action was to settle the lawsuit with Tool, who would go on to become another Zomba success throughout the 2000s, representing the broad stylistic reach of artists under the Zomba Group.In 1993, Zomba created Zomba! Music Services in order to facilitate publishing rights for those in the film and television industry.[8] The division would act as a channel through which clients could acquire products and services from any company within Zomba. Songs published by Zomba Music Publishers Ltd., or released on any of the Zomba labels, or specialty recordings owned by the division itself, could be sourced for inclusion on film soundtracks, television shows or commercials.[1][17] This move gave Zomba profits by providing an accessible method of accessing the company’s vast publishing catalogue.The year 1994 saw the first of many of Zomba’s successful forays into the Christian music scene with the purchase of the Brentwood Music Group.[1][18] Brentwood was an established company consisting of an extensive Christian distribution network, several labels, and one of the largest music publishing divisions in printed choral music in the U.S.[19] Expanding on the Brentwood purchase, Zomba purchased the Christian label group Reunion Records from BMG in October 1996.[1][20] In 1997, Zomba purchased yet another Christian music affiliated company, the Benson Music Group, from Music Entertainment Group.[21][22] Benson became Zomba’s third label to focus on Christian music following Brentwood Music and Reunion Records. An important asset of the Brentwood acquisition was the publishing arm, originally founded in 1902, that included 46,000 copyrights from artists such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Willie Nelson.

In reaction to the surge in Christian-oriented labels gathered over so few years, Zomba created the Provident Music Group in June 1997.

 

The Nashville-based group was led by Jim Van Hook and was essentially a continuation of the Brentwood group and an amalgamation of the other Christian-oriented labels. The group consisted of the Benson, Brentwood and Reunion groups, as well as the Brentwood/Benson Publishing Group and newly formed Provident Music Distribution arms.[23] This new group allowed the three main sublabels to have unified resources and distribution while still retaining their unique personalities in the market.In 1996, Zomba acquired the Windsong Holdings which gave them control of many new companies including Windsong International, Pinnacle Entertainment and Music For Nations.[24] It also gave them control of the established music company Rough Trade (80% of Rough Trade Records Germany/Switzerland/Austria (GSA) and 100% of Rough Trade Benelux). Rough Trade was primarily known as a distributor, but it also ran many electronic labels based in Germany. In July 1999, Rough Trade GSA was renamedZomba Records GmbH, while the Benelux operation (which only had distribution at the time) was absorbed into Zomba Distribution. The Rough Trade name remained as an imprint of Zomba Records GmbH, but was largely abandoned by Zomba.With the successful integration of Rough Trade into its operations in the GSA region and Benelux and to expand on recent teen pop successes, Zomba created a London-based international label group, Zomba International Records Group.[25] Directed by Stuart Watson, the new organization allowed each new local territory to freely sign and develop acts on its own.[26] If those artists could create a strong regional profile, it would be possible to “export” them to Zomba International for broader exposure.[27][28] Simultaneously, it allowed Zomba artists increased international exposure. The expansion was largely unhampered, save for some legal issues with the Australian branch. Australian record company Festival Mushroom Group lost at least a dozen employees to Zomba in early 1999, and placed an injunction that stopped them from soliciting Mushroom employees, and accused former employee Scott Murphy of trying to bolster Zomba’s presence while still working for Mushroom.[29] However, the issue was resolved fairly amicably and ended with a distribution deal with BFM Distribution (a joint venture of Festival Mushroom Group and BMG).[30]

As the record industry began evolving due to the widespread use of the Internet, and the increasing ease with which artists can record at home, Zomba made moves that illustrated their desire to change with the times. In 2000, they joined the growing list of record companies that made some music available via digital download with online distribution company Amplified Entertainment.[31]

 
In 2002, Zomba joined majors EMI, Universal and BMG, with approving some of their Jive catalog for release on the new DataPlay media. Though the media was largely unsuccessful, the move illustrated Zomba’s competitiveness with the major labels in the growing digital world.[32] However, a negative outcome of the changing times was the closing of some of Zomba’s Battery Studios and Dreamline equipment rental businesses towards the end of 2001.[33]
Teen Pop explosion[edit]
Around 1993, Clive Calder began his uneasy relationship with Lou Pearlman. Pearlman had put together a new group, Backstreet Boys, which was languishing on Mercurywithout any hits.
 
He presented the group to Calder along with David McPherson. Though initially uninterested due to the dominance of grunge and alternative rock, Calder thought that the group could help expand his operations overseas.[7] Zomba bought out the boys contract for $35,000 and moved the group over to Zomba imprint Jive

Calder immediately sent the group to Sweden and matched them with a group of producers recently found by Zomba scouts: Dag Volle and Martin Sandberg. In mid-1995, the band recorded their three songs including their first single at Cheiron Studios in Stockholm. Next Calder matched them with an old friend, Stuart Watson, who ran SWAT Enterprises, a company specializing in promotion in Asia. The group went to Asia began touring relentlessly and released their first album which sold one million copies in three weeks. In 1997, when Calder thought the grunge phenomenon had sufficiently passed, he took the group back over to the United States where their North American debut ended up selling upwards of 14 million copies, creating the first in a run of many hits that Zomba and the Backstreet Boys would enjoy together.[7]While Pearlman and Watson were breaking the Backstreet Boys overseas, Jive A&R man Steve Lunt was busy in the US seeking a female star, and was greeted with fifteen-year old Britney Spears. Initially horrified by Spears karaoke demo of a Toni Braxton song sung in the wrong register, Lunt was intrigued by a brief moment at the end where he heard the “kind of soul she had.”[7] As was the virtually the standard at Zomba, Lunt took Spears to in-house songwriter and producer Eric Foster White in the company’s publishing division, and the two recorded “You Got It All.” Like the Backstreet Boys, Spears was hooked up with Cheiron producer Max Martin. Within thirty days of letting a music director atStar 100.7 in San Diego hear “…Baby One More Time,” the song was number one on the charts.In 1999 Zomba was involved in a “boy band controversy” when trying to sign another group that Pearlman had put together himself, *NSYNC.[34] *NSYNC had recently left RCA due to allegations that Pearlman had taken approximately 50% of their profits and not the one-sixth that he had agreed to.[35] Seeing the group as a “free-agent,” Jive quickly signed them and prepared to release their next album. On 12 October, Pearlman’s company Trans Continental, in conjunction with RCA owner BMG Entertainment and BMG Ariola Munich sued Jive Records, Clive Calder, and the members of *NSYNC for $150 million citing, among other things, breach of contract.[36] Pearlman sought an injunction against the release of the band’s new album and that the recordings be given to him, but it was denied in court.[35] As a response to the suit, and in reference to treatment by Trans Continental, *NSYNC released a statement citing the company’s poor conduct as “the most glaring, overt, and callous example of artist exploitation that the music industry has seen in a long time.”[37] The lawsuit was settled on 23 December with undisclosed terms, but left Jive free to release future *NSYNC albums.[38][39]

The lawsuit, which Rolling Stone called “the music industry’s nastiest legal skirmishes in years,” was problematic for Zomba for two main reasons.[39] First, having heard that ‘N Sync was signed to Jive, the Backstreet Boys did not want to be a part of the label anymore. Second, the lawsuit temporarily strained Zomba’s relationship with BMG, whose distribution deal with Zomba was coming to a close. Jive initially announced that they would not renew their deal with BMG, but reconsidered following the lawsuit with BMG and Trans Continental. The distribution deal may have been a determining factor in the outcome of the lawsuit, since distributed Zomba product accounted for 5.5% of BMG’s US market share, and company CEO Strauss Zelnick was under pressure not to lose that.[38] They also signed a new deal with the Backstreet Boys that gave the band a 20% royalty rate.[40]

From BMG to Sony, and recent activities[edit]

BMG had owned 25% of Zomba’s publishing business since 1991 and 20% of its recording business since 1996.[41][42] As part of BMG’s 1996 agreement with Zomba, the music giant was required to follow through on a put option and buy the remaining shares it did not already own before 31 December 2002.[43][44] In June 2002, Clive Calder decided to exercise the put option.[45] Effective 26 November 2002, BMG Entertainment concluded its deal with Zomba for the purchase of the company’s entire assets.[46] While Calder had originally requested $3.2 billion for his shares in Zomba, valuation of the label’s assets varied from $1.6 billion to $2.4 billion.[44] Following the purchase negotiations, a price of $2.74 billion was agreed upon, the biggest purchase of an independent at the time. Zomba’s sale had been the latest in a series of independent label sellouts including Island Records and Geffen Records (both sold to Universal for $300 million and $550 million respectively), and Virgin (sold for $950 million to EMI). The $2.74 billion paid for the Zomba Group was more than was paid for the purchase of many others labels including Island, Geffen, Virgin, A&M, Motown, Chrysalis, and Def Jam, combined.

Initially, BMG took its time in integrating Zomba with the rest of its labels, hoping that the former independent would lift BMGs worldwide rank from fifth to fourth-largest record company.[47] Calder resigned his position as CEO immediately after the purchase, but stayed on in an advisory position for about another year.[41] In mid-2003, BMG began its worldwide integration of Zomba cutting hundreds of jobs through the consolidation of regional operations.[48] While many of the key managers stayed, and the large offices in the US and the UK remained operational, all of the other regional offices were assimilated into BMG. In addition to the regional mergers, the Zomba and BMG publishing companies were integrated. The US and UK offices remained as stand-alone units, but many of the back-office functions were consolidated into BMG. The Provident Music Group, Zomba’s foray into the Christian music market, was reassigned as a RCA sub-label.[48] By 2004, the record labels were reorganized under the Zomba Label Group.[49]

In 2004, BMG and Sony Music Entertainment merged to form Sony BMG Music Entertainment taking Zomba with it. Though the merger was plagued with controversy and eventually ended with Sony buying out BMG’s stake in late 2008, Zomba executives continued to expand the company’s operations in various aspects. In 2007, as part of Sony BMG integration and consolidation, RCA Music Group and Zomba Label Group merged their international, sales and field staffs to form the BMG Label Group under Sony BMG.[50] RCA and Zomba kept separate groups under BMG, but this configuration was short-lived due to the dissolution of the Sony BMG merger. Zomba is currently owned wholly by, and operates under Sony.

On 2 November 2004 the American Federation of Musicians announced that it had entered into an agreement with Zomba. Effective 1 January 2005, the labor union covered all artists on any Zomba subsidiary labels (and any future labels) under the Federation’s Sound Recording Labor Agreement.[51] The deal ensured that all artists under the Zomba aegis would receive, for the first time, a full range of benefits and protections, among which are scale payments, industry standard working conditions and pension contributions.

In 2005, Zomba formed Zomba Gospel under the Zomba Label Group in an effort to collate its recently expanding gospel labels. Zomba’s interest in gospel began in the form of a distribution deal with GospoCentric Records (and sublabel B’Rite Music) in October 2001, which Zomba later purchased in 2004.[52][53] Verity Records president Max Siegel was charged with heading the new entity which included Zomba labels Verity and GospoCentric, as well as four artist owned imprints: Quiet Water Entertainment (Donald Lawrence), Fo Yo Soul Entertainment (Kirk Franklin), New Life Records (John P. Kee) and F. Hammond Music (Fred Hammond). Distribution was handled by Provident-Integrity for the Christian Bookselling Association, and through Sony Distribution (formerly Sony BMG) for the mainstream market.[54]

Zomba’s publishing division also continued its expansion. In 2006, Zomba Music Publishing purchased the catalogue of the UK-based Strongsongs Music Publishing from the Telstar Music Group.[55] This large acquisition gave expanded Zomba’s rights to many international hitmakers to include Metallica, Craig David and Dannii Minogue among others. Beginning with the appointment of David Mantel in 2005 as the head of Zomba Music Publishing US operations, the company began to take a different signing approach that focused on unknown or unsigned artists. Mantel’s first signing was T-Pain, whose two singles “I’m Sprung” and “I’m N Luv (Wit a Stripper)” hit number 8 and 5 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100.[56] This type of signing was also used in the records division were artists or producers were given their own imprint. In October 2008, Zomba made an all-inclusive multiyear joint-venture deal with Hitz Committee Entertainment, and imprint in the making for almost 5 years by Jive A&R VP Micky “MeMpHiTz” Wright.[57] Beginning in 2008, Hitz Committee consists of a record label under Sony, music production, music publishing, artist and producer management, and TV and film projects.

Company structure[edit]For a list of all companies associated with Zomba see: List of Zomba Group companiesThe structure of the Zomba Group during the independent era (1975 to 2002) is difficult to pinpoint exactly due to the private nature of Clive Calder’s managing style. During that period, Calder’s private investment group Summer Shore NV controlled the Zomba group.[58][59] The company began as Zomba Management and Publishers as early as 1975. They expanded to the US, first with a publishing sector in 1978, then a records division in 1981 while the management and publishing divisions became separate companies. Also sometime during that period, they started a production division initially called Zomba Productions Ltd., which would become Zomba Recording Corporation. From a legal standpoint, Zomba’s holdings are divided into their music publishing business (Zomba Music Holdings BV) and music recording business (Zomba Record Holdings BV).[59]The former holds only music publishing (i.e., written music) rights, while the latter holds all of the recorded music rights, along with some publishing groups acquired over the years. In addition to those two, there is another holding company called Zomba Entertainment Holdings BV.[60] Below is a breakdown of most of the companies and divisions that have been owned by Zomba. Since the BMG integration in mid-2003, and further integration into Sony Music in early 2009, the exact status of some companies is not known. As much detail has been provided to illustrate the current status of these companies.


Records division[edit]Zomba labels were operated under the Zomba Label Group from approximately 2004 until 2009 (now part of the RCA/Jive Label Group. The Provident Label Groupcontained other labels after its purchase in 1997, but is no longer a part of Zomba. The Windsong purchase gave Zomba control of labels through a variety of company structures including Pinnacle and Rough Trade, however, some of these labels are no longer a part of Zomba. These three groups are organized separately below, followed by a list of inactive or formerly owned labels from various periods.
Zomba’s first, and flagship label is Jive, formed in 1981. Since then, Zomba has acquired and created a variety of labels and label groups that either operate independent from, or under Jive. During its independent period, the various record labels under Zomba all reported directly to a records division.
 

There was no formal public face for the labels until BMG formed Zomba Label Group in 2004. Though the term “Zomba label group” or “Zomba Group records division”[16][61] had been used previously to refer to the various labels owned by the company, it wasn’t until then that an actual company was created to control the labels specifically.[49][62] The Zomba Recording Corporation continues to coordinate production activities on many Zomba subsidiary releases.From 1981 until 1987, Zomba labels were distributed by Arista. Following that, Zomba signed a deal with RCA for distribution that lasted until 1991. The end of the deal coincided with BMG purchasing a large share of RCA and a deal with BMG was signed for distribution. BMG remained the North American distributor for Zomba until after the purchase in 2002, however, other regions had various other distributors over time.[59] EMI became an important distributor for Zomba in Europe via Virgin Records, but distribution details are listed below in the Regional Branches section. Zomba only controls one small vinyl pressing plant, therefore, most of their manufacturing has been outsourced to companies such as Sonopress (BMG affiliated), Sony and Technicolor.[59]In 1996, Zomba acquired 75% of UK distributor and label group Pinnacle, 80% of the Rough Trade label and distribution in the Germany/Switzerland/Austria (GSA) region, and 100% of Rough Trade Benelux. Effective 8 July 1999 Rough Trade Records was renamed Zomba Records GmbH and the Rough Trade sales and distribution arm was renamedZomba Distribution, operating as a division of Zomba Records GmbH.[25][63] As of the BMG purchase, Zomba conducted its own distribution in the UK (with Pinnacle), Germany, Austria and Benelux (all with Zomba Distribution). In those areas, Zomba also distributed for other, smaller independent labels. In France, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Sweden, Zomba had its own marketing and sales, however, distribution was handled by EMI (through Virgin in most cases). In Finland and Greece, Zomba material was exclusively licensed to EMI who controlled marketing, sales and distribution. North American distribution has almost exclusively been with BMG. Following the BMG purchase in December 2002 and subsequent integration in June 2003 and the end of contracts with EMI (also in June), all distribution has been handled by the local BMG companies. When BMG merged with Sony, Sony BMG became Zomba’s distributor from 2004 until early 2009. Since then, Zomba products have been distributed by Sony Music since Sony purchased BMG’s interest in their joint-venture.

Zomba Recording Corporation[edit]

Zomba Recording Corporation (previously Zomba Productions Ltd., and sometimes colloquially referred to as Zomba Records[64]) is a music company and division of the Zomba Group. The US affiliate is Zomba Recordings LLC[51] and the UK affiliate is Zomba Records Ltd. The company also runs an investment and financial services company called Zomba Ventures Inc.[65][66]

Primarily a production company, Zomba Recording Corporation coordinates various activities for the recording process including hiring musicians, managing studios, and organizing production, mixing and mastering personnel. Recordings made under the coordination or supervision of this division are usually marked with the phrase “An Original Sound Recording Made by Zomba Recording Corporation (or Zomba Recordings LLC/Zomba Records Limited/Zomba Productions Limited).” While not strictly a record label, Zomba Recording Corporation appears on most of the various sublabels that Zomba owns. Additionally, the minimal manufacturing as well as some distribution that Zomba does on its own is run through this company.

Battery Studios is the name of Zomba Recording Corporation’s chain of multi-room facilities often used in the production of Zomba artists. The main facility, located in New York City, is constantly associated with high profile clients including R. Kelly, ‘N Sync and Britney Spears. The studio features three recording and mixing studios with SSL 9000, SSL 4064 G+ and Euphonix CS3000 consoles and Pro Tools MIXplus systems.[67] Battery Studios was originally opened in London before the New York branch existed, and at one point consisted of six locations in London, four New York locations, two Nashville locations, and one location in Chicago.[68] However, Zomba closed its London branches towards the end of 2001 and the others followed soon after leaving only an unknown number of New York locations.[33] In addition to Battery studios, Zomba Recording Corporation began a relationship with the established Swedish studio Cheiron Studios and its production personnel. The studio had operated since the mid eighties (as SweMix), and from 1996 until its closure in 2000 it shared a joint production and publishing venture with the Zomba Group.[69][70] Apart from the actual studio, the venture included a production team that helped forge the sounds of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, and ‘N Sync.

In addition to recording studios, Zomba Recording Corporation operated Dreamhire Professional audio Rentals. Dreamhire opened in 1984 with operations in London,New York City (1989) and Nashville (1988). The London branch closed in 2001 followed by Nashville in 2003. Dreamhire also included Hilton Sound, a hire operation purchased by Zomba in 1996.[71] Since November 2003 following the BMG purchase, Dreamhire is no longer a part of Zomba and runs independently as Dreamhire LLC from one location in New York City, owned by Chris Dunn, ex-bass guitarist from UK band (City Boy (band)) which recorded 5 albums all produced by Mutt Lange.[72]

Zomba Label Group[edit]

During its existence, the Zomba Label Group featured all of the Zomba-related labels that BMG purchased in 2002. The current Battery Records is unrelated to the previous defunct imprint of the same name. Listed below is the structure of the Zomba Label Group immediately before its rebranding and dissolution in 2009.

Provident Music Group[edit]

Main article: Provident Label Group
The Provident Music Group was created by Zomba in 1997 as an amalgamation of their Christian music activities. Zomba had purchased Brentwood Music Group in February 1994 and founder Jim Van Cook was charged with leading the new music group. The group consisted of three sections: Provident Label GroupProvident-Integrity Distribution and the Brentwood/Benson Publishing Group.
As part of the music group, Zomba amalgamated their Christian labels under the Provident Label Group. The new group initially consisted of Brentwood Records, Benson Records and Reunion Records, though Brentwood was shut down in 2001. Since then, other labels have been added. Under Zomba, the Provident Label Group had this configuration:
After BMG bought Zomba in 2002 and integrated the company in June 2003, the Provident Music Group was moved under the aegis of RCA with the exception of the Publishing division which was moved under BMG Publishing (Provident would later create its own publishing division, Essential Music Publishing, with no connection to Zomba[73]). BMG Publishing was subsequently sold to Universal, along with Brentwood/Benson. In 2008, when Sony bought Bertelsmann’s stake in their joint Sony BMG venture, the rest of Provident became part of Sony Music Nashville.[74][75]

Windsong (Pinnacle, Rough Trade, Music For Nations)[edit]

In 1996, Zomba acquired the holdings of Windsong International. The deal gave the following controlling interests to Zomba:[24]
Rough Trade GSA was renamed Zomba Records GmbH, while the Benelux operation (which only had distribution at the time) was absorbed into Zomba Distribution. The Rough Trade name only remained as an imprint of Zomba Records GmbH. Before being absorbed into BMG’s operations, Zomba Records GmbH consisted of the following regional labels, most of which focused on electronic dance music:[76]
  • Advanced
  • Air
  • Form & Function
  • Our Choice
  • Reihe Ego
  • Rough Trade
  • World Service
Zomba Records GmbH was integrated into BMG’s German operation along with the other regional offices. The Rough Trade name was later reacquired by Geoff Travis andJeanette Lee who eventually continued it independently. When BMG restructured Zomba in 2003, Windsong/Pinnacle was moved under Bertelsmann’s Arvato AG. Through amanagement buyout, Windsong/Pinnacle gained its independence in early 2008, but was forced into administration late in the year due to the economic crisis.

Zomba International Records Group[edit]

Zomba International Records Group managed the various regional branches opened as early as 1997 and as late as 2003. The group served to solidify the operations in these regions, some of which already had small offices with activities from scouting, promoting (such as Sweden), or as much as distribution for smaller labels or operating a few regional record labels (such as Germany). Following the BMG purchase, all of the remaining regional labels (with the exception of the main US and UK offices) and the Zomba International Records Group activities were merged with their respective local BMG offices in mid-2003.

Publishing division[edit]

Zomba Music Publishing Ltd. (sometimes colloquially referred to as Zomba Music or Zomba Music Publishing Group) is the publishing division of the Zomba Group of Companies. Initially known as Zomba Enterprises Inc., the division officially changed names in 1994 and became the Zomba umbrella company for publishing. Since then, Zomba Enterprises is the name used for Zomba’s ASCAP affiliate, while Zomba Music Inc. is the name of the BMI affiliate.[95][96] The holding company that controls most Zomba publishing interests is called Zomba Music Holdings BV. David Mantel has been the president of Zomba Music Publishing since 2005, when he took over for Richard Blackstone. Tim Smith is the GM of the UK affiliate Zomba Music Publishing Ltd.[56] There are various other publishing entities under Zomba, some of which are vast libraries acquired over the years, and some of which are small groups, sometimes representing a single artist. Below is a list of Zomba’s publishing subsidiaries:[65][97]
  • Bluey Tunes Productions Ltd. (England)
  • Brentwood Music Inc.
  • Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing Inc.
  • Bruton Music Ltd.
  • Firstcom Music Inc. (USA)

Zomba has limited activity in the classical music publishing sector, however, they are quite active in the pop music publishing and production music. At the time of the BMG purchase, Zomba had pop music publishing operations located in the UK and Benelux, while every other territory was sub-published with BMG. Production music operations were located in the UK and France with smaller operations in Sweden and the Netherlands. In Germany and Austria, Zomba and BMG owned publishing rights through jointly-owned companies. Finally, in Spain and Italy, Zomba compositions were licensed exclusively to BMG.[59]
In mid-2003, BMG integrated Zomba’s publishing to form BMG-Zomba Music Publishers. In 2007, Vivendi purchased the BMG-Zomba publishing company and placed it withinUniversal Music Publishing Group, becoming the worlds largest music publishing business.[99][100]

Management companies[edit]

Zomba’s first enterprise was a management company in London called Zomba Management and Publishers, with Mutt Lange as one of their first clients. His success allowed the company to expand, and eventually the companies split into two entities, creating Zomba Management. Zomba management represents music producers and artists.[62]Zomba Screen Music was formed in 1997 as management company for film composers.[101][102] In May 2001, Zomba created Ingenuity Entertainment a full-service management company for artists, producers, composers and music supervisors in the film and television industries.[8][103] The Los Angeles-based company serviced both new and veteran artists, offering music production and business affairs services. Ingenuity Entertainment combined a recently formed management firm, also called Ingenuity, with Zomba Screen Music.[103]

Film/television services[edit]

Most of Zomba’s activities in the film and television industry are music related. Zomba Screen Music is their full-service management company for film and television composers. In addition to management, Zomba! Music Services was formed in 1989 as a division offering prerecorded music and publishing services for soundtracks, television and commercials.[104] This also had the effect of promoting Zomba music through the television and film industry.[105] In 1995, Zomba purchased the well-established Segue Music Inc., a film and television music editing company providing music supervision, temp tracks, prerecords, playbacks and soundtrack production.[106][107][108] Zomba also had a joint operation with Portman Entertainment called Portman Music, a soundtrack related company Coombe Music International Ltd. as well as a small film production companyZomba Films. In 2005, Zomba began SEE Music, a joint venture with the recently combined BMG/Zomba Publishing and FirstCom Music specifically for motion picture advertising.[109]

UNDENIABLY QUESTIONABLE MAIL TAMPERING

Most people go about their business and daily grind without any issues, while others are subject to constant questionable violations. Most are able to mail simple packages worry-free and they have faith that their items will reach their destination whole and unhampered.
Well, I have definitely mentioned in previous posting that there have been issues with mail tampering but I guess since some find it easy to challenge the validity of previous claims since they were dated. In my opinion, it has become necessary to once again demonstrate that there are those who are and have been continually abusing their unwarranted access, positions and power to further hinder my efforts to obtain justice and resolution for continued allegations of corruption.
I RECENTLY DECIDED THAT I WILL CONTINUALLY, PERSIST WITH MY EFFORTS TO EXPOSE THE CONTINUED, DELIBERATE VIOLATIONS OF MY CIVIL RIGHTS, COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS, AND MANY OTHER ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES, UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR AND MUCH MORE…I mailed very important a total of (4) four packages. (2) two on April 14, 2015 and another (2) two on April 15, 2015… Please review package and  tracking information below for proof of undeniably questionable mail tampering in 2015.
Although I have previously copyrighted materials in the past, I have never sent them REGISTERED and PRIORITY MAIL. REGISTERED MAIL is a service offered by the United States Post Office that is supposed to guarantee security of your package by keeping your package under lock and key during transit. REGISTERED MAIL service also requires a signature of each postal worker that comes in contact with your package during delivery.

I sent these (2) TWO other packages,


BOTH; 



PRIORITY 2-DAY REGISTERED MAIL 

IT WAS 30 HOURS BEFORE THIS PRIORITY MAIL EVEN LEFT LAS VEGAS, NV (3 X’S LONGER THAN OTHER) THEN WENT THROUGH JAMAICA, NY IT TOOK (4) FOUR DAYS FOR PRIORITY PLUS REGISTERED MAIL TO GET TO WASHINGTON…

THIS PACKAGE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DELIVERED
FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 2015 AND WHY WOULD IT BE NECESSARY TO RE-ROUTE THROUGH 
JAMAICA, NY…?

I understand that there are no deliveries on Saturday and Sunday, but clearly if it was not rerouted to Jamaica, New York…it would arrived on time FRIDAY, APRIL .17, 2015.
IT TOOK (4) FOUR DAYS TO GET TO WASHINGTON…
PREVIOUS PACKAGES SENT TO MI AND GA, WAS DIRECT
DELIVERY AND A DAY EARLIER.
 
How many other citizens have these mail issues? Convenient delays…but the real question that needs to be asked is, ‘What are the odds of these copyrights and complaints have of being delayed?’ 
 
Why did it take so many hours before leaving Las Vegas, NV?  You cannot block or hinder mail unless you know when it is being sent…
 
What are the odds that those 30 hours were used to manipulate submissions? Why else would these violations be allowed to continue, if not due to corruption and abuse.
 
Again, who do you think would be able to delay mail that is supposed to be under lock and key? 
 
Is it a coincidence that the MAIL that is being sent and most likely ‘gutted’ would expose the most heinous of acts thrust upon individuals forced to live as outcast by those in positions of making a difference while the public scorns.
 
With each attempt to obtain assistance or with each effort, I am faced with additional hardship or pressure to succumb due to lack of support and ostracism. 
 
Each instance of hindering justice, ignoring  and blocking resolution by mail tampering only continues to violate my civil rights. 
 
No one should be refused the same opportunities and rights guaranteed by the constitution to exercise these rights that are denied when mail that is being sent to proper officials. 
 
MY ALLEGATIONS ARE TRUE AND CAN BE SUBSTANTIATED BY THE FULLY COMPLETED, WHOLE DOCUMENTS, PUBLICATIONS, PHOTOS, RECORDINGS, VIDEOS, ETC…EACH, THAT I SUBMIT 
 
BUT IF THESE ITEMS CAN BE DELAYED OR HINDERED THIS CLEARLY WOULD DEMONSTRATE HOW INDIVIDUALS WITH POWER CAN CONTINUE TO ENSLAVE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS FOR DECADES. 
 
I EXPERIENCED SIMILAR TACTICS WHEN ATTEMPTING TO UTILIZE OTHER OUTLETS FOR MY PUBLICATIONS…MY PRODUCT WAS REPEATEDLY MISREPRESENTED. 
 

Further supporting documentation is available in the tabs above this blog!


 

I am well aware of the usual procedures implemented to address these kinds of wrongdoing involving these major entities. However, it has also been my personal experience that those who attempt to pretend to address these concerns usually don’t put the victims best interest first due to monetary gains and social impact on society.  It has been my experience that relying on secret remedies are truly for the benefit of the violators so that they may remain unaffected. My twenty plus years has clearly demonstrated that those in positions of power are he’ll bent on preserving this evil and my public has no interest in allowing proper recourse  (again, due to social impact on society).

All while some misrepresent this situation or those who imply interest in resolution…there are many who are undermining these efforts with indirect actions which encourage further victimization and dehumanization.

To those that would attempt to mislead, judge, rejoice and misdirect….

Why don’t you redirect yourselves to some decency, a conscience and to your humanity!

So while some are using every justification known to mankind…

I am the one that has to listen to the laughter and mocking of my public saying, 10 minutes, $10. So because of this and after decades of being unable to combat lies and manipulations…I can assure you that I am no prostitute and your methods and hesitation only ensures continued unwarranted violations of the worse kind.

So I will not be letting go, nor will I remain silent while empowered and misinformed animals continue to run rampant.

Misogyny in Our Courts?

Created & Written By Tiwanda ‘Ne Ne’ Lovelace 
E.O.A.A. Weekly News Article: Friday, May 1, 2015 Updated and Re-posted March 24, 2016

Misogyny in Our Courts?

The legal system, police and courts refuse to acknowledge any claims in any case spanning years and even recent criminal acts involving police or judicial misconduct…while the public is used to spread rumors to justify modern day enslavement. 

 
The courts ignored actual violence and facts while attributing ‘violence’ to being a product of plaintiffs ovarian cystectomy (female surgery)… 
 
There was individuals who were assaulted, shot, double homicides, etc…but no one addressed or acknowledged each incident.
 
JUDGE BERNARD FRIEDMAN, MICHIGAN COURTS IGNORED VIOLENCE – STATING ‘THE VIOLENCE WAS A PRODUCT OF FEMALE SURGERY…!
 
This is not only a Misogynist comment but clearly not a proper attitude for a representative of Justice.

Tiwanda Lovelace, Pro Se Plaintiff,

Vs. Zomba Music Publishing, INC. and BMI Defendant,

 Case No. – 96-72270 – Hon. Bernard A. Friedman

Filed dated – May 16, 1996THE CORRUPTION, VIOLENCE, INTIMIDATION AND MAIL TAMPERING (WHEN SEEKING ASSISTANCE) CONTINUES TO THIS DAY –

 
See recent proof of mail tampering when seeking assistance: 

http://musicbizadirtygame.blogspot.com/2015/04/undeniably-questionable-mail-tampering.html

 

My father, Robert Heard allegedly killed a Detroit Police Office, Stanley Rapaski and Cass Czerwinski. I can’t help but wonder if Czerwinski is related to Democratic Representative Joseph C. Czerwinski because whoever is behind this is in position to hide the truth.

If the police and courts blatantly ignore facts regarding corruption, violence, mail-tampering, etc…
After being homeless for more than (2) two  years, I finally found a place but it was short lived because of further abuse.
 
Recently, I had a neighbor that banged on my walls, blasted music and actually threaten me with
bodily harm to the point where the landlord got involved and took it to court. 
 
Even with multiple police reports, the courts or officials refused to ticket him, evict him or addressed any complaints. So after being homeless for two years (sleeping in shelters, relatives and cars) I was forced to listen to loud music base and neighbors beating my walls while the police ignored complaints.
Let me do anything to you for decades and then you can say what you want about it!
How do you combat the law when it refuses to work or acknowledge you because of who you are?
How do you gain support from a public that believes that you are the moving force behind
multiple murders?
 How do you win a public that believes that popularity dictates whether you have the ability to have rights?
How do you combat lies that you are responsible for loss of life when others are murdering and
manipulating while blaming you while you are left in the dark?
 
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR CONTINUED CORRUPTION!
A POOR DEFENSE COMIC STRIP BY NE NE LOVELACE 2
 
Yes, you are damn right! I am putting it all out there because I have been denied and have
received unwarranted public persecution for way too long (decades) to satisfy vengeful and
greedy entities.
Persons in positions are harboring grudges continuously work to rob you of your chances. Those who are privy to information and placed in positions to have an effect on the life of selected individuals could utilize events to their own benefit. Imagine some having access and the skill to impede or thwart their progress with manipulations to hinder support.
The human factor cannot be ignored and unfortunately when given an opportunity to rear its ugly
head, treachery is usually not too far behind. Imagine scorned individuals lurking, sneaking to poison others opportunities.
It is not me that is drudging and dwelling on the following events but it is the constant persecution that I am forced to endure because of the impact of events that have and are happening behind the scenes.
 
It is the will of those in positions that are using every contact, position to induce harm which
can only be attributed to these past events because I have no other associates or family left that can be used to influence harm.
If you don’t feel that any of my allegations are valid then why is it that there is continued
questionable mail tampering decades later when involving exposing these events?
Why are there multiple instances of Courts misconduct; wherein, actual violence and clear
judicial misconduct has been ignored?
Why haven’t any of these officials answered any one of the valid complaints and allegations or
challenged any of these facts?
Why is it so important to control or limit the information provided?
Why hinder contact or interfere with mailed packages?
Who do you know that had an open and shut copyright infringement and breach of contract case but no one would represent?
If there is no truth to these multitude of claims, why not allow recourse or representation so that
these civil rights violations can be addressed?

UPDATED – COLLEGE DROPOUT, RAT OR UNSUSPECTING VICTIM?

Written by Tiwanda Lovelace – Bio | Email  | Website |  | Youtuube | Online Store

COLLEGE DROPOUT, RAT OR UNSUSPECTING VICTIM?

Those in positions would prefer to have to believe lies but this is not what it appears to be.
Throughout the decades, it has been said that I have been subjected to public humiliation and dehumanization as a result of not graduating college.
Although college works for some people, I’m going to need whoever it is that is doing drugs while reading from a script to stop lying to the public!
Stop lying and blaming my deliberate oppression on a lack of a college degree. Going back to college is not going to make greedy lawyers, politicians, racist, liars, bullies and revenge seekers – recognize me as a human being.
Going back to college is not going to make the courts and this system miraculously recognize my valid substantiated claims (that were previously ignored).
Going back to college is not going to erase the lies and blame that has been placed on me and that I have been forced to carry by ruthless cowards!
Going back to college is not going to miraculously give me the rights that I have had repeatedly deprived and stolen from me.
Going back to college is not going to erase the murders of innocents and otherwise; committed by the greedy, the haters and the revenge seekers.
Going back to college is not going to make me forget that a legion of my fellow American citizens, co-workers, friends and family attempted to induce suicidal actions as a result of vilification, alienation and oppression just so that they can continue to hide the truth.
I am glad to disappoint and I would never; especially, when I know better.
As mentioned above, the message provided is that my public display is due to a lack of a college degree. However, to those in the ‘streets,’ the reasons that are used to continue this dehumanization is by telling others that I am a Rat who is responsible for the violence bestowed upon others. Meanwhile, the crooked lawyer’s, politicians, etc…continue to profit off of your hard work and struggles.
I don’t care about how people try to put all of the blame on me. I will never follow rules that do not recognize me as a person. If these haters snatched you up in a world wind of treachery, you would not remain silent either; especially, after decades of carrying the blame.
All while everyone is perpetrating a fraud, no one from either entity has ever communicated with me in any way directly regarding any of the events of which I have been accused.
Only an idiot would victimize and vilify someone for decades while keeping them down and expect it to never end; least of all, expect loyalty.
Obviously, I have never been a part of that world…your rules don’t apply. Besides, what idiot would abide by laws and rules that require the acceptance of enslavement and poverty? You can call me whatever you want but it won’t be, ‘Slave.’
For those who require proof instead of just blindly following others, I have provided actual documentation that confirms the serious atrocities that have been committed, ignored and mentioned in my Complaint against Zomba for Antitrust, Copyright Infringements, etc…
I have provided a copy of the search warrant for a double homicide which was mentioned in my Complaint along with other violence but…On July 22, 1996 the courts dismissed my case as frivolous. Judge Bernard A. Friedman cited that my show cause order was ‘bizarre, irrational and indeed delusional.’ Judge Friedman continues to state that the complaint is ‘fanciful and delusional.’
This double homicide occurred two months after traveling to NY to address Co-Publishing Agreement, advance and submitted songs…During my visit, Richard Blackstone, Senior Director of Business Affairs and who 6 mos. later became Sr. Vice President of Business Affairs did not make himself available after being made aware of my visit. 
As you can see, there is nothing frivolous about any of this!

STATE OF MICMIGAN                                                                                    SEARCH WARRANT AND AFFIDAVIT

COPY OF SEARCH WARRANT

This double homicide occurred two months after traveling to NY to address Co-Publishing Agreement, advance and submitted songs…During my visit, Richard Blackstone, Senior Director of Business Affairs and who 6 mos. later became Sr. Vice President of Business Affairs did not make himself available after being made aware of my visit. 
                                                                                      
I had no idea of what was going on but this definitely was very serious – Murder was the Case that they tried to give me, literally!
I may have hurt others feelings but I never killed anyone!

Here’s a copy of the Complaint which clearly demonstrates that the courts were aware but chose to ignore.


The Judge’s Order listed below:











Below is my Objection to Dismissal:




Nobody wants to talk about where the millions  went from the song that was originally placed and used on a major television sitcom. 

Nobody wants to acknowledge the 40+ lyrics and melodies of mine that was used to shop this alleged Warner deal and also used to hurt me by flooding the radio and charts in that poor attempt to drive me to suicide.

Murder, I had no freaking idea what they were talking about and didn’t want to know. I didn’t even watch the news because it was too much. I was in my own world so to speak, completely in the dark and sleepwalking. I have never been the same since. Imagine my mind racing with fear and anxiety. My body was shaking profusely.
Some fool took my luggage tag from my trip to NY and left it at the crime scene. I have never been able to find out whom and I don’t want to know. I never judged people or at least I tried not to. I dealt with people from all walks of life. I had faith in people then and I made excuses for those who disappointed me or behaved in hurtful manners. Being raised separate and isolated, this never gave me an opportunity to know the true evil that exist in some.
So, you see part of my dilemma? There is no such thing as common sense. What is common for one may not be common for others.
Especially, when everyone around knows exactly what is going on but won’t say as they continue to stir up drama as if it is a game. It is easy to sit up and call someone stupid but unless it is you being deliberately left in the dark surrounded by people who blame or who are constantly taking it out on you.
Amidst all the drama, on August 15, 1996 my oldest child was outside playing outside in front of the house when one of my hate-filled neighbor’s children chased him into the street.
Conveniently, he was struck by a vehicle and thrown into the air to land on the concrete. What made this different from any accidental automobile collision was the drivers’ response. Sharon Deasfernandez, the driver got out of her car with this cold, angry expression on her face.
Clearly, she was not sorry, there was no sign of remorse. The police ruled in favor of the driver and said that my son ran into the vehicle in front of his own house. I can only imagine that something happened to someone’s family and they were coming for mine.
Of course, I immediately ran to my child’s aid but all the while watching her facial expressions. It was strange that within a few minutes her family came to support her and try to justify why she was remorseless. I wanted to fight her but my child required my assistance and at this time I was still in disbelief.
I thought it was odd that she was of Hispanic decent being that I never really knew that I had crossed paths with anyone except Jake Salazar. It is possible that one of the persons that I knew was and looked African American. I don’t know but regardless I started to watch everyoneclosely. I slept with a twenty gauge after that incident.
From my viewpoint, we were truly under siege.
My sister was raped around the same time my nightmare began and for a while I thought it had something to do with me; especially with the family’s mistreatment toward me.
At the time I was being blamed for everything but she can play the ‘I love you, I love you not’ game all by herself because I am done. That rollercoaster game is over. I forgive and forgive but enough is enough.
I don’t want to minimize her pain but nobody stopped them busters from raping me at will. I have been date raped before and told my mother and my husband what was done to me. I was vomiting and crying but they acted like I didn’t say anything. As usual, I didn’t matter.
                  
I submitted list of songs, copyright copies, and contracts request for assistance; however, I received my materials back from all the attorneys, groups, and agency, along with letters expressing no interest in representing me.
On May 20, 1996, I filed a lawsuit against BMI, Zomba and Jive because of their lack of response to my request as to how BMG, MCA, EMI, WEA, Polygram and Jive have released songs which blatantly infringe upon my copyrights. I sent these lyrics to Zomba and discussed these works in detail. Clearly, I have been denied my rights and this definitely confirms a Monopoly situation.
I was very emotional at this time and lacked the skill of a licensed attorney but I provided copies of copyrights. I provided proof of certified mailings and other documents to support that I required courts assistance.
                                        
On July 22, 1996 the courts dismissed my case as frivolous. Judge Bernard A. Friedman cited that my show cause order was bizarre, irrational and indeed delusional. Judge Friedman continued to state that the complaint is fanciful and delusional. I didn’t know that copyrights and certified mail receipts were miscellaneous papers.
Imagine being hurt, confused and having misleading people – all chanting for your demise like you were responsible. All of them, hoping to witness your pain and sorrow. They probably were selling front row seats to the event. Illegally wiretapping and watching your every move. Then you find out that your children are under siege as well.

YOU WOULD BE ANGRY TOO!!

There are too many coincidences and convenient tragedies to be ignored. This could happen to any of you. 

IMAGINE 20+ YEARS OF BEING VIOLATED AND IGNORED!
I never gave permission for any violation of my privacy. I was never asked and no one communicated with me regarding any of these continued violations of my rights;
Yet, the many violations continues in 2014!

So, let me get this right…I imagined my house getting shot up, double homicide, children assaulted and sister getting raped. The judge could have assigned counsel or made another decision. Talk about getting assaulted, 

I felt violated all over again.

Now the ‘system’ is implying that I am a poster for those who do not complete college…

SO…HOW DOES COLLEGE

MAGICALLY CHANGE THE FACTS?


To Add Insult to Injury, I just received a deposit from the royalty from the one song that was used to initiate the Co-Publishing Agreement:





I have never been involved in gangs. I worked with local music producers to write lyrics and sung their songs in exchange for studio time or music tracks…suddenly, I am supposed to be the villain or whatever those in position chooses to call me because they couldn’t have their way.

That’s not Gangsta!

Hurting and Raping woman and children..

while hiding behind the truth, greed and hate…

That’s not Gangsta! Y’all are not the Man!

Y’ALL BETTER WAKE UP!

LAS VEGAS, NV –

Who is Sara Baartman?

 

One day while at work, I received an email from one of the supervisors that was entitled, Who is Sara Baartman?

This email introduced me to an actual event in history that would have never been made available to me otherwise. This email was with regards to the calculated and inhumane treatment that was allowed to continue publicly against a woman of color many years ago.

This is a story that will never be taught in any public or private school because it would reveal a painful truth that most would like to pretend as if it has no relevance in today’s society.

Although there are different versions of events regarding Sara (Saartjie) Baartman…some say that there was a British ship’s doctor named William Dunlop who persuaded her to travel with him to England. Others say that when she was 21 years old, she was smuggled from Cape Town to London. Her employer, allegedly a free black man named Hendrik Cezar, was manservant to a British Army medical officer named Alexander Dunlop.

Dunlop allegedly persuaded Cezar that Saartjie had lucrative potential as entertainment and a scientific curiosity in England, which had a thriving stage trade in human and scientific curiosities. This type of entertainment could easily have been compared to freak shows; such as, the bearded lady, etc…where individuals were put on display, jeered at, mocked or mad fun of for entertainment purposes.

At twenty years of age, Baartman allegedly ‘signed’ a contract with an English ship surgeon named William Dunlop (who was also a friend of Cezar and his brother Hendrik.

This ‘contract’ was supposed to be an agreement for them to take her to England in order to work as a domestic servant and be exhibited for entertainment purposes. Like many others in that day, Baartman was unable to read and write.

What is definitely true is that Baartman had an unusually large buttocks and genitals but this was common among Khoisan women. This was around the time in history when some Europeans had set out to try to prove themselves superior and that among others especially blacks were inferior.

Whatever she was told, it was clear as to exactly what Dunlop intended, he displayed her as a freak of nature, a scientific curiosity, and in any way which would make the most money from these shows.

She was supposed to receive a ‘portion of earnings’ from the shows and then she was to be allowed to return to South Africa after five years.
  
 
 
 
She was then continuously poked, prodded and exhibited as a ‘freak’ across Britain.

While traveling with Dunlop and Cezar, Sara’s treatment was called into question by anti-slavery laws but they faced no real consequences. They produced a document that had allegedly been signed by Sara Baartman but the fact was that she (Baartman) was illiterate and was from a culture that did not write or keep records, I cannot imagine this contract to be credible.

                                                                                                                        

Although abolitionist attempted to use the courts to free her, they failed. However, her contract was amended in the hopes of providing better conditions, greater profit share and warm clothes.

If he did pay her, it wasn’t sufficient to buy herself out of the life that she was living. She would not have been forced to turn to prostitution once discarded thousands of miles from her home; that is, if she was even compensated at all. They were definitely profiting or the show would not have lasted four years.

Once the courts were involved, they ruled that Dunlop and Cezar was supposed to provide ‘better conditions and more profits,’ but instead, suddenly Baartman was sold into worse conditions.

Baartman was then sold to a French animal trainer named, S Reaux and exhibited as an animal in cages to be poked and prodded.

People find it easy to say that they didn’t care but I believe that they cared way too much about making it a point to not recognize her humanity. Their intent was to ensure that they gave her next to nothing; that is, if they gave anything at all.

I’m pretty sure that just like today, contracts are intended to benefit big business and not the individual.

 

 According to SouthAfrica.info, “she continued her on those degrading shows and exhibitions; that is, once the Parisians got tired of the Baartman show. She was forced into prostitution.  She didn’t last the ravages of a foreign culture and climate, or the further abuse of her body.  She died in 1815 at the age of 25 or 26.”

Even after all of above mentioned abuse, indignity followed her in death because within 48 hours, her body had been dissected, her bones boiled, and her brain and genitals bottled. This is a true story that is a part of history that still haunts us to this day.

[i]Cuvier, the so-called father of both comparative anatomy and paleontology, conducted the post-mortem examination. Plaster casts were taken of her body. Once the whole figure was integrated, “sculptors and artists finished the lines to the mold, polished the model surface with oil of turpentine, and then skin, vessels were painted on; the whole covered in a coat of clear varnish.”

In the name of Science, her (actual) sexual organs and brain were displayed in the Musee de l’Homme in Paris. After 160 years, her remains were removed from public view but not laid to rest.

In 1994, President Nelson Mandela requested that her remains be brought home but it took another eight years before her remains were returned.

Sara Baartman waited over a hundred and eighty years for her freedom. Her bones were not removed from display even after death until after 187 years. Her remains were buried on Women’s Day, 9 August 2002 in Eastern Cape, South Africa.

After reading about this event, don’t you find it rather strange that it took exactly 187 years?

History Repeating Itself – Time for Change!

I wonder what happened when she asked for help back then. If I recall correctly, the courts failed her too. After she served her usefulness to those inhumane, greedy and cruel business men, she was discarded. Her ordeal is so familiar because not much has truly changed in recognizing and correcting corruption in the courts and other civil right violations.

Although Sara Baartman story is almost two hundred years old, there are still those who do not recognize women as having any value; especially, African Americans. There are still those that will use the legal system in the service of their own needs to oppress. 

The Sara Baartman’s of today are still put in positions to be killed, never compensated, put on display, lied on and manipulated against, left to die, to be raped and dehumanized.

I, too, signed a contract wherein I was promised compensation for lyrics and melodies. I signed a fifty percent co-publishing but I never received any monies for the numerous submittals which were over forty compilations of lyrics and melodies that miraculously found their way on the radio and up the charts. There were no management or producer contracts to justify refusing payments but this co-publishing contract was not honored but used to take and avoid paying royalties.

 
People should never be penalized for addressing instances of racism and ignoring racism or racial acts only implies that this type of behavior is acceptable. This is why some are unable to understand or accept their punishment for their acts because they feel that it is acceptable or the norm. They become shocked that it is not okay to chase down and shoot members of certain nationalities.

NOT INVISIBLE, EVEN A CHILD CAN SEE THIS INJUSTICE!

NOT INVISIBLE  
EVEN A CHILD CAN SEE THIS INJUSTICE! 

I had filed the copyrights listed below and they were processed just months prior to illegally obtained warrant was issued.

          1.      PAu001720136 / January 7, 1993     “Collection I-Tiwanda.” Lovelace, Tiwanda, 1967-

   18 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES, 1 RAP, AND 2 POEMS

2.      PAu001721382 / March 4, 1993       “Collection II-Tiwanda.” Lovelace, NeNe

6 SONG LYRICS AND MELODIES, 

Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation AS DIRECTED by Courts, there were no efforts were made to contact and/or provide Notice of Hearing.  

“The undersigned officer hereby certifies that a thorough and diligent search for the probationer listed in this warrant and affidavit has been made at but not limited to places of abode, known places of frequencies, and others and that His/Her whereabouts are unknown an cannot be located…” 

And this warrant was signed May 19, 1993 expires July 31, 1997



That small print says: 

Warrant Used to Take Public Housing in Nevada

Why did this police agency state that the warrants were valid in 2005 but unable to execute due to budgetary constraints but when I lived in Georgia 2003/2004 there were no efforts to arrest? I believe the warrant was serving its purpose, to inflict damage, hinder and harm.

Michigan Inter-State Case Report dated 08-2-1993
Although Lovelace was reporting to Michigan Probation, no efforts were made to contact and/or provide notice. I was still reporting (3) three months, unaware that the warrant was issued on May 19, 1993. I was just told that I no longer was to report to Michigan Probation office. I obtained this letter well after.
Michigan Inter-State Case Report


In all that time, I never mention the fact that my father was convicted of murdering a police officer. I did not want to think that people would hold that against me or be this sinister. I did not want to even go there besides I still had faith in the legal system.
After many years of attempting to resolve this issue by submitting written request for correction, I filed a lawsuit in Dekalb County Georgia against the Dekalb County Police and Dekalb County Probation Office due to an illegally obtained warrant for my arrest, modification of my record; which led to revocation of my First Offenders Act…without notice of hearing or opportunity for rebuttal since record shows that I was reporting as directed by courts.

I filed my Complaint against both Defendants, Dekalb County Police and Dekalb County Probation Office


This is only the first few pages and a copy of the initial attachments.

The Judge had determined that under Federal Law that there were stipulations with regards to being able to file suit against the police departments and ruled that I could proceed with lawsuit. 

Below is the Judges a partial summary of the case, frivolity determination, Order for Clerk’s Office to Include Dekalb County Police Dept. as Defendants …

In addition to these documents proving service,
Pacer Court records system also confirms processed…See Below:
Pacer Court records No. 7 – Order instructs Clerk’s Office to list Dekalb county Policeto complaint and to forward Plaintiff USM285 forms for completion.
Pacer Court records No. 8 – Plaintiff’s  USM285 forms and Summons were completed and returned.
Pacer Court records No. 9 – Summons was issued for Defendants dekalb CountyPolice. Yet, Defendants denied being served.  
Pacer Court records No. 10 – Request for Waiver of Summons.

The dates and Court time-stamps confirm that Defendants were served properly but this was ignored. 

The Defendants denied receiving Summons 

The summons that they say that they never received!

Can you explain why does this form below have her signature? Yet, it is not included in their exhibits that claim that they received.
Justice was not served…but the Defendants were!

If I had missed a court deadline for my response, the courts would have made ruling against me. Instead, the courts ignored Pacer court records and my Request for Entry of Default; allowing the injustice to continue. The Judges did not address that problem with multiple request for Correction regarding the Clerk’s Office interfering with filings due to:
1.    Clerk EXCLUDING A DEFENDANT clearly listed on Complaint.
2.    Clerk not providing Judge with correct/updated filings.
3.    Clerk not mailing copies to Defendants, although extra copies were provided for service. While certain filings were mailed, others were neglected at their discretion.
4.    Clerks deliberately delayed forwarding motions to the Judges.
EVERYTHING  was processed and Defendants – Dekalb CountyPolice did not respond in the time allotted by procedure as directed by courts.
Suddenly and without cause the case was reassigned to a different Judge after Plaintiff (Lovelace) filed for Motion to Request Entry of Default…
Months later…





























There is no excuse for blatantly circumventing justice.

The initial Judge ruled that the police could be an entity that could be sued… 
























Every filing was submitted in triplicate and I maintained certified mailer receipts for the ones that I mailed. Courts records prove that they were served.
