Actor, writer and director Nakia Dillard is a Philadelphia-bred creative soul, as evident by his love of arts of all disciplines.  Dillard appeared as a frequent character in the critically acclaimed TV series "The Wire," working alongside some of the most recognized names in the industry (such as actor and director Bill Duke). The series was the start of a much bigger picture and Dillard would eventually find himself in company with Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx, Anthony Mackie, Wendell Pierce, Kerry Washington, and many other notable performers. Credit such as Law Abiding Citizen with Jamie Fox, “The Lovely Bones” with top actress Rachel Weisz & “ The Night Catches Us “ Billing Stars  Anthony Mackie & the most talented Kerry Washington.   Dillard has been in the presence of the greats and he brings a new aspect to his most impressive career by adding an element that stretches far beyond the big screen of movies & television into a very smart position of bridging the gap of intellectual musical compositions with film content.  He partners with Zilah Music Publishing with publishing company “ Aikan Music Group” .   Dillard takes on Music Supervision & Licensing opportunities for indie & major film, cable & television projects.

Today, Dillard is steadily fulfilling a lifelong dream of giving back to the community which gave to him. He is the founder of Aikan Entertainment Solutions (pronounced "I CAN"), an organization that empowers young talent and encourages their artistic growth as well as the entrepreneurial spirit, He is also is the founder of Aikan Acting Class, a successful school which trains individuals (from ages five and above) in the art of acting and other creative outlets.   Zilah Music Publishing is ecstatic to have landed such a partnership such as this.
