Daniel “Dani” Stephenson has continually cemented his name in the  music and entertainment industry, and he got to where he is now through hard work, consistency, innovation, and creative vision. Having gained  many accolades throughout his career, many are often wondering what  the entrepreneur will focus on next. Recently, Dani Stephenson took  another significant stride in his career in the music industry as he stepped  into the Marvel universe and took part in the production of the highly acclaimed soundtrack for Eternals with “Nach Mera Hero.” 

Dani Stephenson has always portrayed an unparalleled vision in music and  entertainment. He began his career as a producer and songwriter under  the moniker Pyramids in Paris while studying at Christ Church University,  taking up music production and artist development. He also studied DJ  technology, music law, media, and publishing at Open College Network. 

Always one to aim for great heights, Dani Stephenson worked hard to  make a name for himself in one of the most cutthroat ecosystems in the  world. From working silently behind his alias to interning at community  radios, Dani Stephenson eventually proved that he is a force to be  reckoned with when he took part in the production of the Billboard topping single “The Mack” featuring Mack Morrison and Fetty Wap. That  marked the beginning of many more opportunities for the visionary.

Soon enough, Danie Stephenson built his company Straight Forward  Music Group. The company has gained many accolades, including multi platinum recognition, various Grammy Awards, Brit Award, BET Award,  Mercury Award, Soul Train Music Award, Q Award, ASCAP Award, BMI  Award, Brit Asia Award, BBC Future Sound Award, and more. The CEO has  worked with many prominent names throughout his company, such as  Diddy-Dirty Money, Drake, Big Sean, Dave, Kanye West, Don Diablo, Gucci  Mane, Nana Rogues, and more. 

Furthermore, in 2019, Dani Stephenson co-founded L3gacy Group with  the former manager of P Diddy, Ryan Lopez. The company has signed  eight-time Grammy-nominated producer-engineer-mixer Shawn “Source”  Jarrett. 

Venturing more into the Southeast Asian entertainment industry, Dani  Stephenson co-founded Mugal Group. The company pilots global  strategies for the next generation of Southeast Asian artists who want to  be heard in the global music and entertainment scene. Mugal Group  champions talents across Asia, including the teen sensations Harris J, Lil  Bilz, and of course, Celina Sharma. 

Eternals follows the journey of an immortal alien race emerging to protect  the earth from the Deviants after hiding for thousands of years. The 2021  superhero film was a blockbuster hit and marked yet another milestone  for Dani Stephenson, who was the executive co-producer of “Nach Mera  Hero.” The title song, which translates to “Dance My Hero,” was  performed by Mugal Group’s rising artist Celina Sharma and was the only  original song featured in the Eternals film score and soundtrack. The films  opening week was a huge box office hit, charting at number one and  accumulating $161.7 million in sales globally. The blockbuster production  features an all-star lineup featuring Angelina Jolie, Lauren Ridloff, Don Lee,  Kumail Nanjiani, Barry Keoghan, Kit Harington, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia  McHugh, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Harry Styles and Salma Hayek. 

The iconic film was directed by Chloe Zhao who is the writer, director, and  editor of the Oscar award-winning film Nomadland. 

Eternals pays tribute to both Asian and Western culture. Director Chloe  Zhao and score composer Ramin Djawadi wanted the film’s musical score  to represent the vibrance of each culture, and “Nach Mera Hero” has  successfully amplified the message. The song leads with a hypnotic and  melodic Indian flute then by rhythmic drums, all tied by the stunning  vocals of Celina Sharma, who sang in both Hindi and English.  

Dani said; “I’m extremely honored and privileged for the opportunity to  work on the Eternals with the Marvel and Disney team. It’s been a great  experience and a fulfilling one. Extremely proud of Celina Sharma for  stepping up to represent her Southeast Asian roots and for delivering such  a positive and uplifting song like ‘Nach Mera Hero,’” Dani Stephenson  shared . “Very grateful to everyone involved that played an equal part in  bringing this project to life.”
