SINGER ASFA SIGNS MANAGEMENT DEAL WITH ROGER GRANT OF 619 ENTERTAINMENT GROUP!

A working relationship for over eighteen months that was based on a handshake was made official on May 28th 2013 when rising singer Asfa signed a management contract with veteran artist manager/ producer Roger Grant.

Since joining forces with Grant the singer made a dramatic entrance into the musical arena with the number one song titled Not The Life. The song which was his debut single, also showed up on the New York top 30 reggae charts and the South Florida top 25 reggae charts as well as other charts in Holland and Australia.

Asfa was also delighted to have his first EP Take A Look on his own Jecoliah Entertainment Production being distributed by VP subsidiary VPAL and having his hit single included in the top selling various artist compilation Question Riddim album, all by design due to efforts of management.

Roger Grant is the head of the Philadelphia based 619 Entertainment Group and is popularly known as the founder of Organic Records as far back as 1999. When Grant started Organic he released singles by Fourth Street Sisters, Big Mountain, and Sanchez. The label however became synonymous with the career of Guyanese reggae star Natural Black who gave it its first hits in the form of Songs With Feeling and Bad Mind. Grant subsequently became Blacks manager and steered him towards international recognition not fully realized when he migrated to the States in 2004.

Asfa believes that Grant is experienced enough to take him beyond what he achieved with Blacks. An added bonus is the fact that Grant and another partner Benton Patrick Dunn are also working with Asfa as producers to complete his debut album Journeying due for arrival later this year.

Asfa commented on the latest development in his career saying “I know it was imperative to secure a manager before venturing out. This is a new day in my life as an artist and I’m excited about the endless possibilities that are ahead of us.”
