Having studied a Music Business degree at BIMM London, Emmanuel’s first steps into the industry were with an internship at Capitol records where he worked on Eliza and the Bear’s album campaign and supported the James Bay Tour.
After this he was referred to Air Edel, for a placement which helped widen his musical knowledge further.
Now Emmanuel works at Universal Music. His roles include service, training and support in all labels under Universal across forty territories. His day-to-day work involves attending/scheduling meetings for Island, Polydor, Virgin EMI, Decca and managing digital releases.
Aside from working at Universal, Emmanuel also manages two artists through his own management company/label UNRULY. One of these recently featured on The Voice UK (Jack Bruley). The other – “Mei Mei” is currently working on her debut EP with Sons of Sonix, who worked with the likes of Wretch 32 and Stormzy.
Reflecting on his time at BIMM, Emmanuel had this to say;
“Life at BIMM was fundamental in supporting my growth and initial network in the music industry. My degree taught me patience, the importance of networking and key business knowledge that has helped me get to where I am today.”
