To be a good music manager you need to be organized, have good interpersonal relationship and have a good understanding of the industry as it stands today.
It is easy to overlook, or even forget that there are people, often a rather large team of them behind the scenes who help coordinate and fuel artistes’ career.
However, from negotiating massive record deals and brand partnership to scheduling studio sessions, it’s safe to say that a manager is a vital part of an artiste’s development.
The Liberian blood brothers of Lib Lifestyle Mng, and Amplified record label are primarily known for managing two of Liberia’s biggest artistes; Bucky Raw and Stunna.
Bucky Raw and Stunna continue to be forces to be reckoned with as they secure their respective spots in a generally cluttered industry. We’ve all been privy to the Trapco music changing success of Bucky Raw, leading him to earning multiple awards, as well as lucrative business deal, CSE CLOTHING, TRAPCO APPAREL AND BRAND AMBASSADOR are few to be mentioned.
Both Co managers are changing the dynamics of the Liberian music scene, and the George brothers have built an elite and exclusive roster so far.
Past and present artistes include: Stark Vader, Mz Menneh, Taweh G, Bucky Raw and Stunna.
Victor who is the oldest has worked in many other industries in and outside Liberia; including working as Radio Dj, Audio Engineer and Managing Artistes in Gambia, and playing professional basketball in Senegal and The Gambia.
King Philip George the youngest has managed and planned events with many artistes in the U.S.A including; 2C, GMH, Taweh G, Mz Menneh, Stark Vader, Dope Zulu, Tru Story, Bucky Raw and many others.
The music business is a great industry to work in but to be a manager requires drive and determination which is driven by a passion for music. It’s fiercely competitive but once you make it, it can be one of the most fulfilling and often financially rewarding.
