Interviewer: Tell us something about your background?
Gucci P: “I’m from Imo State, Nigeria. I was born in the U.S. but I went back home for 3 years in the sixth grade to touch basis with my roots, so I’ve seen the two different sides of life. I can speak Igbo, pidgin (Krio), and English. I’m the oldest in the family out of three boys and a single mom, so I’d say I hold a double leadership role in life.”
Interviewer: What inspired you to start Tykoon management?
Gucci P: “I was heavily in the party/club scene, just for the fun of it. At a point the business side of it started revealing itself to me, and the more I was exposed to it the more interest was developing. I started concluding what I could do for the people around me who were majority artist, from club spins to opening for bigger artist. I think from there I started going out with more of a networking mindset instead of fun. It really led me to where I am now (a management company owner) Networking is KEY!!”
Interviewer: Tell us something about the services of your company?
Gucci P: “We offer digital marketing services, playlist placements, blog placements, you name it Hahaa! Actually we’ll be offering a wide range of more services very soon like LLC registrations for those trying to register their business, Genius lyrics uploads, content creation and much more! Be sure to follow us on Instagram @TykoonMP to stay updated!”
Interviewer: What’s the biggest concert or event you’ve partaken in?
Gucci P: “It was an event called #TheZoo5. That had to be my first concert party with my guy Swagvill (head promoter of Bliss DC). It was with Lil Uzi Vert. Me and my team packed out a bus full of students from Morgan State & Towson all the way to D.C. to see Uzi. We went from person to person on each campus passing out flyers, doing drops, taking pictures, and all that fun stuff. When I got on the bus and couldn’t find anywhere to sit due to how many people there was , I didn’t even complain I just stood up the whole ride and realized my capability to bring people out no matter from and to where. It made me happy.”
Interviewer: What are the ongoing and future projects of the company?
Gucci P: “Currently we offering social media promo through different large networks and as far as artist management were focusing heavily on Lane because our faith in him shoots out the roof! We also don’t like rushing the process of blowing an artist because it’s definitely not easy. Future plans we’re working on is partnering with high streaming platforms like VEVO, Tidal, Apple Music and more to increase our capability and also credibility. We also will be open to more artists sooner than later so definitely stay tuned for the next act!”
