Manager Spotlight offers a small insight into the heads of incredible managers. This week in the spotlight is Rimes of Just Entertainment.
How long have you worked in Management?
I’ve worked in management for nearly a year now just started during the first lockdown.
Who do you manage now?
Now I have a management company called Just Entertainment alongside the co-founder of Jeremiah Emmanuel. We have a roster that consists of the producer Hargo, aspiring artist Nino SLG, afro beat artist B-Fela and drill artist Kay2B
Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on?
I found my first client through Instagram what inspired me to take them one was they had a really cool hook that I helped developed into actual song which ended up getting signs of relentless records.
What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?
I would say a bad day in the office for me is not getting responses from emails but that’s part of the game and feeling like I haven’t done enough to improve my artists careers. A good day in the office will have to be seeing the growth of something that I’ve done.
What has been the highlight of your management career to date?
Personally I would say being able to find Nino SLG and build him from the ground to where he is now which I believe is a very good position. He is also releasing an EP very soon.
What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2021?
I think one of the biggest challenges for manager in 2021 is Covid and not being able to make your artist experience shows because of a lot of artists that are around now have come up during lockdown so they have been born into no-shows so I think it’s about preparing them.
What music are you currently listening to?
I listen to quite a lot of up-and-coming artist so I can’t exactly see what music and I currently listen to but do you like rap caviar on Spotify playlist
