My mission is to support and empower indie artists, enabling them to seize opportunities and gain knowledge to further their careers. Truly being independent means not only being involved but being aware and in control of all aspects of your career, and that’s what LTP INC embodies.’ SR.Gent remarked.
A proud and loving father, established entrepreneur and committed artist, SR.Gent’s journey has become an inspiration to people pursuing their dreams. “With dedication and undying passion, you can succeed in anything in life.” Said SR.Gent.
