For upcoming artists, getting a major record label to notice you or even sign you is not easy, and if they do, as much as there are advantages, there are also some downsides. Record labels are generally the banks of the music industry, helping artists with the resources to promote their songs and build a global audience. However, for someone new in the industry who doesn’t understand how labels work, you can easily end up in debt.
This was one of the reasons that renowned entrepreneur and rapper Bandman Kevo decided to go solo and build his own record label. According to Kevo, he wanted to create a platform to inspire others in the industry, showing them the many ways to succeed. Kevo is also using his music to spread positivity and share his story with the world.
“The path to finding success is daunting, and there are various challenges, some of which seem almost impossible to beat. Even so, you shouldn’t give up on your dreams. The only way to unlock your next chapter is to keep pushing,” says Kevo.
When Kevo chose to follow his passion, he didn’t have enough capital to support his dreams. He was just a young man from a low-income family who had no one to hold his hand. But Kevo knew that he had to fight for his goals and be the change he wanted for a better tomorrow. He worked hard, and through determination and resilience, he is now an icon in the music industry and the entrepreneurial space.
Kevo has a following of over 1.9M on Instagram and more than 420,000 subscribers on Youtube. He also has an OnlyFans account where he shares financial principles, tips, and blueprints to help his subscribers manage their finances and build income in a suitable way.
With years of experience in the music and finance sector, he is leveraging his skills to help others in the industries. Kevo is assisting artists in leveraging their credit to market their music and generate streams, potentially growing their brands without the need for record labels. He is also helping entrepreneurs to start and scale their ventures.
While getting started in the entrepreneurial space, Kevo worked a 9 to 5 job. While he enjoyed the job, he quickly realized that this was not the best choice to build his wealth. He quit his job and began his research on the different avenues to make passive income, and he now has multiple successful businesses in e-commerce, real estate, and more.
Having walked a similar path to many, he uses his journey to help others. Kevo uses his platforms to educate people on repairing their credit, making better investment choices, and reaching their financial goals. Kevo has so far inspired thousands of lives both directly and indirectly, and he says in the coming years, his goal is to help many more attain financial independence.
While there are certain circumstances we do not have control over, no situation should hold us from fulfilling our dreams. As Kevo continues to prosper, he reminds us that it is possible to build wealth from the ground up.
