More on Richard Antwi:
Richard Antwi was a much-loved and widely-respected music manager, lawyer and entrepreneur who played a pivotal role in the careers of Wretch 32, Lethal Bizzle, Daley, Wiley, Tinie Tempah and others. His untimely death in 2016, at the age of just 38, triggered a flood of tributes from across the music industry.
Having grown up in north west London in a Ghanaian family, Richard went to a local comprehensive school then on to study law at the University of Oxford. He regularly mentored young entrepreneurs in the B.A.M.E. community, and contributed to the MA in Music Business Management course at the University of Westminster as a guest speaker.
More on the Richard Antwi Scholarship:
The Richard Antwi Scholarship has been established by Friends Of Richard Antwi (a loose collective of friends) and the University of Westminster in memory of much-loved music industry figure, Richard Antwi, with the intention of continuing his legacy.
The scholarship provides full support to a student on the highly regarded MA in Music Business Management course at the University of Westminster, covering tuition fees, a contribution to living expenses and includes an opportunity to undertake work experience. The opportunity is aimed at talent from the UK B.A.M.E. community, and those in financial need - applicants don’t need to be graduates, but should, like Richard, have a passion for music and entrepreneurial spirit.
