A talent management system must be worked into the business strategy and implemented into the daily processes throughout the artist’s professional life as a whole. It cannot be left solely to the human resources department to attract and retain events/engagements, but rather must be practised at all levels of the artist’s professional engagement.

This helps them to remain in the public eye for a long time helping them integrate plans and processes to track and manage their public events and collaborations.

Chibu’s View On The Artists Journey
Chibu remembers his client’s journeys as he says, ‘It’s no secret that success as a musical artist does not come easy. Although being talented is surely important, it also matters what your circumstances are, and what kind of team you have behind you. This is where a talent manager like me comes in. I help artists define their brand and manage all the business that comes with entering the music industry. This includes tour management, music production, and promotion.’
While new artists can do this themselves, but there are a number of advantages to having a super manager like Celestine Chibu Amajoyi to represent you. First, artists can focus on producing material. In addition to this, artists are more likely to become recognized and be successful because the artist will be guided by his talent manager, whose job it is to know the inner workings of the music industry. But of course, this is not true of all artist management companies, because not all of them hold A-list networking with the centre of the industry as Chibu does.
