Today we’d like to introduce you to Best Kept Secret Mgmt.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
Well we are a multi-platinum mgmt company that manages some very credible talent from producers to artists. We have grown a lot and we’re very grateful for it, we don’t take anything for granted (try not to at least) but we didn’t just start in this position so it all started with a vision. I always knew it’s who you know more than what you know at least that was my mindset so I was networking like crazy via trips via social media mainly just being very passionate and persistent. I started with only one producer back in 2018 and put all my energy and resources into him. We saw our first success in 2018 with being part of the movie soundtrack Creed 2 starring Micheal B Jordan from there we started getting more recognition and some more placements that ended up going platinum RIAA. Then I started a company at the start of 2019 in Jan. where I started signing more producers to the company and I added a new partner to the team so I could manage to take on the producers we were starting to sign. fast forward three years to now and we are a team that consists of our own pr to the team we have a head of and we have an assistant sync coordinator and couple partners and myself being the CEO. We also have a full roster of producers that have been a part of some very big records and albums that have all gone to become platinum or multi-platinum songs and albums. We also started signing artists in 2020 late to 2021 and we are very tunnel vision we stay focused on every genuine pure people is the only way to be on the best-kept secret team. we have a motto it’s best-kept secret until it’s too late and the whole world knows.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
I wish I could say it’s been a smooth road but that would be a lie.
First off your dealing with people and managing their careers so somedays you’re a therapist more than a manager to make sure they are in the right mental spots to be able to be creative.
Second, there’s no guarantee in this industry of success, it is something that takes a lot of networking and patience.
Third, sometimes there are things we have no control over when it comes to making an album if they are going to keep that song on the album and also making sure the people you work with are genuine and great energy because the truth is there a lot of ungenuine people with hidden motives you need to stay clear from.
Overall it’s been a journey of ups and downs and slow and fast moments… a lot of broken promises you need to overcome… a lot of relationships gained and lost and the journey is never-ending you just either get closer or further from your dream as time goes on.
We stay positive throughout the thick and thin and we pride ourselves on how genuine we are.

We love the full send podcast and Joe Rogan but the key to our work ethic is adding balance to it meaning going for nature walks, the gym, and shopping for different things to create balance.
Favourite book is the secret.
We love golfing and swimming and this helps clear our heads to come back to attack things stronger.
