Veal-Steen owner Steve Lane said the deal will undoubtedly fortify his company’s presence in the reggae industry, as it will enable distribution of a large, radio friendly catalog from a wide variety of renowned reggae artists.
"I’m very excited to partner with Mr. Kemar McGregor,” stated Lane, the CEO of LGN Entertainment, the parent company of Veal-Steen Music Publishing. "This partnership was a great match for LGN Entertainment and Veal-Steen Music Publishing since we have distribution and publishing already in place, and it puts us in a position to offer these services to a company like Flava McGregor Records.
