(CelebrityAccwss MediaWire) — Sanctuary Group continues to grow its urban music division with the acquisition of Tony Davis Management, manager of Nelly, St Lunatics and Murphy Lee. Davis will join the Sanctuary U.S. artist management team.
Sanctuary acquired Mathew Knowles Music World Entertainment in 2003 and subsequently formed Sanctuary Urban, with a roster that now includes Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige, Eve, Beyonce, Solange, Xzibit and others.
“Sanctuary Urban Management welcomes Tony Davis to our team,” said Knowles. “Tony has done a remarkable job building the careers of Nelly, Murphy Lee and the St. Lunatics. I've watch from a far and seen Nelly develop into one of the stellar rappers in Hip Hop. I'm ecstatic to have them both part of our team and urban artist roster." — Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
