Fabrizio Moreira (born January 18, 1982, Manta, Manabi, Ecuador) is an Ecuadorian politician and businessman.[1] He currently resides in the United States as a political dissident against the government of Rafael Correa in Ecuador.[2] He is a licensed talent agent[1] and owner of the record label VIP Music Records, best known for managing the bookings of the rapper Soulja Boy from 2013-2014.[3] He is also a dual LARAS / NARAS Grammy voting member and international speaker.

Career[edit]

Moreira is a former member of the Network of Young Leaders of the Inter-American Development Bank, which has participated in complaints and investigations against drug trafficking[4] and contract killings[5] for the periodical El Universo in Ecuador. He promoted freedom of speech, free trade, and training activities in Ecuador with the participation of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation.[2] He has also served as national representative of the nongovernmental organization CIT Ecuador (Fundación Coordinadora por la Inversión y el Trabajo).[6]

He is a former candidate and a councilor for the Social Christian Party[7] in Manta.

Moreira used his experience in advertising, public relations and promotional services to assist in the political campaigns of several like minded politicians, including Edgar Jara (candidate for president of Ecuador), Otto Pérez Molina (former constitutional president of Guatemala), and Susana Gonzalez (former leader in the Ecuadorian senate) through social media marketing.[2]

Moreira founded the record label VIP Music Records and Fabrizio’s Talent Agency with the goal of building a pop culture platform that can be used to give media attention to political causes he cares about.[2]

Political views[edit]

Moreira is a member of Ecuador’s Social Christian Party and has a libertarian political ideology. In his political career, he has promoted ideas of free market policies and entrepreneurship.[8]

In 2008, he was accused[9] of promoting destabilizing activities[2] against the President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa. On behalf of the nongovernmental organization CIT Ecuador, Moreira called the accusations "unfounded".[9]

That same year, Moreira organized a rally in support of political freedom called "Youth for a free democracy"[10] in Manta during the visit of former Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez to Ecuador. The event was censored[11] by Chavez and Ecuadorian government officials,[12] and a government-mandated media blackout was in effect.

He was eventually forced to leave Ecuador, and now works as a political activist from his residence in Brooklyn, New York. He has since been invited to speak in Spain, Colombia, Chile, and Peru on the subject of economics and entrepreneurship.[2]

Publications[edit]

He has been interviewed as a consultant in several magazines and media of entrepreneurship and politics about Ecuadorian national reality. In 2017 he published a book of entrepreneurship called: "A real job can kill your dreams", at the moment it is sold on virtual platforms such as Amazon and iTunes, its firm edition is expected in its native country of Ecuador under a publishing house still to be established.
