EXCLUSIVE: Jojo Ryder and Akon have been collaborators for years, and now Ryder will head the multihyphenate’s company. Ryder, whose producing credits include the VH1 series For The Love Of Ray J and Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business, has been named president of Konlive Productions. “Jojo is a producer in every sense of the word,” said Akon, Konlive’s owner and CEO. “Whatever he sets his sights on he figures out a way to get it done. Making him president of my production company formalizes a job he was essentially already doing at a very high level for me.” Ryder is executive producing the feature American Heist, starring Hayden Christensen and Adrien Brody, and the Konlive-produced matchmaking documentary Make It Last Forever, on which Akon also served as an exec producer.
