Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on
Found my first client online, watched a sbtv freestyle, heard the lyrical content and style of rap and was blown away.
What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?
A good day: When you meet deadlines to submit songs & videos, which doesn’t always happen. Also, being in the studio with your artist and you hear a hit record unfold.
A bad day: If a release goes wrong, video link doesn’t work, or a timed release doesn’t come out at the exact time.
What has been the highlight of your management career to date?
Highlight has been selling out 2x Brixton O2 academy With MoStack , as I’m born and raised in Brixton and have watched all the greats perform there.
What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2020?
With Covid 19, it could be difficult to keep artists motivated and geared up, especially when all shows have been cancelled. Keeping everyone’s mental health in order in such times are challenging in itself.
What music are you currently listening to?
I’m listening to all different types of music, from Rap, R&B, Drill, Grime, to Soul, House, Dance & Pop.
