As a biography, Benjamin Bronfman is now known as Benjamin Brewer. Like his girlfriend, Bronfman is a musician. He used to perform with the alternative rock band The Exit, but the group is said to have disbanded, with their MySpace page declaring “serious hiatus”. He also founded the record label Green Owl Records. The music business runs in the family, with his father, Edgar Bronfman Jr., the chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group.
In May 2008, news hit of the engagement between MIA and Benjamin Brewer. A wedding date is still unknown. The new baby boy has been discussed as the symbol of “two worlds colliding” in a great way, combining west and east, first-world and third-world, industry music and grass roots sounds.
