This is part of their growth strategy....

You submit your literature work/books...

They contact Macmillian or Longman to find out how much they can make from marketing your book and distributing it nationwide.

Bayowa Films & Records shook mouth into the conversation to tell them they can also sell some of your books in London.

They accept these deals and make fast money then pick one yeye winner and give him/her 5% of the proceeds.

Then they come back to do small advert with 10% of the illicit funds and claim they are helping the masses.
