DR. BILL RELEFORD CONTINUES TO PROMOTE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA

WILL DEBUT AFRICAN-MADE APPAREL LINES, MIA and BUTTA AT MAGIC SHOW IN VEGAS

AUGUST 2005
Dr. Bill Releford, CEO of Butta, Inc. intends to ignite the fashion industry when he debuts his urban apparel lines, MIA - Made In Africa and Butta (Bringing U The Treasures of Africa) from August 28th- 30th at the MAGIC Convention at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas. Both lines carry the significant distinction of being clothing lines made in Africa by Africans.

The Butta Collection will include high quality t-shirts, baby-ts, wife-beaters, fleece hoodies, boxers and boxer briefs. Grown, sexy and in control is the overall theme. Butta is already generating interest from around the world.
Releford has been tireless in his mission to expand peoples image and world view about conducting business with Africa. An essential part of this mission is to manufacture and import high-quality mens and womens undergarments from across Sub-Sahara Africa and to promote them aggressively within the United States and international urban clothing markets.

Releford is determined to heighten a sense of belonging, pride and roots renewal for Africa, specifically among the hip hop generation with the line. Reducing Africa's dependence on aid requires entrepreneurial leadership, cites Releford. With the launch and promotion of the Made In Africa and Butta lines we hope to begin to shape our youths beliefs about Africa. Once we do this, the possibilities for future business transactions become endless, he expounds.

Dr. Releford is already manufacturing for several major U.S. retailers in Sub Sahara Africa. His usage of the African Growth and Opportunities Act is a case study of how American businessmen and women can benefit from this historic U.S. trade legislation.

With his company, Butta Inc., Releford is already doing the unheard of: providing private label manufacturing for companies such as Robinsons Outdoor, Whitewater, Wal Mart, Dilla Golf, The Uniform Maker and others. In addition, Butta Inc. has developed a Sub Sahara Africa manufacturing alliance that includes plants in Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Niger, Mali, South Africa and even Madagascar!
