From the connoisseur himself-“It’s been one year since I started the blog and I’ve helped so many artists it’s amazing.

proffers artists promotional services and all of their marketing needs. He’s managed to push his spotify to almost 500k streams, that too solitarily. He has even aided popular artists who are his clients now.

inspiration when commencing his business was the lack of support for independent creatives.

He fell in love with music at the age of 8 aandproclaimed in front of that his mom he wants to be a rapper by niche.
“If more creatives try expanding their portfolios they will be more valuable. Anyone can write and record a song but can you take your own photos and edit them? Manage your social media/ grow it? If you possess many talents I believe you increase your value,” he emphasizes. When starting his business, he had to rely on his mindset to help him overcome all obstacles.
“You need to have a powerful mind because sometimes the negativity outweighs the positivity and you will feel like giving up,” he says.
He had to deal with jealousy and fake associates who tried to sabotage the business by spreading rumours, trying to discredit his brand. They even went as far as to try to hack his Instagram page, but he was able to revive it.
He believes in healthy competition. A creative mind and an innovator, he is always a step ahead of his competition when it comes to innovative ideas. He spends hours every day networking, since he believes it is not all about what you know, but who you know as well. When it comes down to fear, he believes you can overcome fear with the right approach and a determined mindset.

Success to him means crushing every goal he sets, both short term and long term along with having financial stability while doing the things he loves and is passionate about. This is why he advises anyone who yearns to start a business to have a better understanding of what they’re passionate about.
“Even though you’re working you will never notice it because it is something you love which will make it even easier,” he firmly says.
His upcoming projects include releasing new music, which he plans on releasing later this year. He is also currently working on a set of interviews for his blog with upcoming novel artists.
