LOOKING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF CREATIVES: Dumi Oburota

BRITISH MUSIC mogul Dumi Oburota has called on aspiring artists to “send us your music” in a Instagram post celebrating his tenth year in the industry.

Dumi, who is the manager of multiple award-winning UK rapper Tinie Tempah and co founder of music and creative management company Disturbing LDN, revealed he’s still very much on the hunt for new talent.

“We are into creatives who want to disturb things,” he said.

In the candid black and white post, which showed the 33-year-old on a mixing desk, he wrote: “In 2006, I registered Disturbing London Records @disturbingLDN 10 years in the game and [I’m] still loving every minute of it! It’s always about the MUSIC and the creative. The game’s changing and so are we at DL,” he said. “Send us your music, ideas, anything.”

He ended the posts with the hashtag, #Letsmakehistorytogether.

Dumi diligently saved and faithfully invested £10,000 to back his business dream and Tinie’s music career, and hopes that his journey to the top will inspire every young black person to believe that they can achieve whatever they put their minds to.

“I strongly believe you get out what you put in,” he told The Voice. “If you want to make something happen in life, you can’t wait for someone or something to come along and fulfil your dreams. I took control of our goals and began to plant our seeds wisely.”

In July, Tinie Tempah made UK chart history by becoming the first UK rapper to have six No.1 singles.

The north London wordsmith landed his sixth chart-topper with single Not Letting Go, featuring singer Jess Glynne.
