Manager Spotlight : Steven Odufuye

16 June 2022

How long have you worked in Management?

8 years

Who do you manage now? 

Jords, Kadiata, Mike Brainchild, JAY1 & Savannah Dumetz

Where did you find your first client and what inspired you to take them on? 

On my current roster it was Jords, while on tour with ILUVLIVE. I heard his song “Before We Begin” and met him that same afternoon and I was sold. An amazing guy to be around, fantastic morals and phenomenal musician.

What’s a good/bad day at work look like for you?

A good day is when my acts are on time for meetings lol and when they send me new music. I love what i do for a living so everyday is a good day.

I don’t believe in “bad days” I look at those days as days to analyse and see what i could improve on for the following day.

What has been the highlight of your management career to date?

This keeps changing as I grow & reflect but at the moment i’d say it would be the fact that my producer, Mike Brainchild has officially completed the album with one of best artists to come out of the UK.

What do you think are the big challenges for a manager in 2022?

For me it would be trying to manage all the requests that keep on coming my way. It’s been super busy but I’m extremely grateful nonetheless!

MGK – Mainstream Sellout

Knucks – Alpha Place

Kanye West – Ye
