Soca music power couple, Bunji Garlin & Fay-Ann Lyons has signed a new major management deal with Top Tier Management Group (TTMG). The news was announced recently via a media release led by TTMG managing partners, Omar Stephenson and Hector Carter.
The Top Tier Management Group is an Entertainment and Media strategic management consulting firm that helps artistes and organizations develop a corporate culture, revitalize brands, build positive customer experiences, and more for over 25 years. The new deal between the Viking Family and TTMG aims to strengthen their brand and boost opportunities outside of the music industry. Managing partner, Omar Stephenson, who also formerly managed Lyons from 2004 to 2005 had this to say about the major news:
“It is exciting, very exciting to work with our Viking Family. They are literally Caribbean royalty and their careers and accolades have been phenomenal to witness over the years. TTMG intends to work with them to strengthen the Viking Family brand while continuing to guide their career and accomplish all of their professional goal which includes opportunities outside of the music industry.”
Fay-Ann Lyons also had this to share about their new management team:
“We’ve been extremely grateful to have an amazing relationship with Omar and his team over the years, both professionally and personally within each other and our family. The Top Tier Management Group has demonstrated that they possess the talents and skills within the Caribbean as well as other jurisdictions to help guide our upcoming projects.
“Both Bunji and I are happy to be a part of the TTMG family and working with Omar again. I was managed by him before, and I am glad to be back under his leadership,” Lyons-Alvarez said in the release.
TTMG has successfully managed top-tier artists from around the Caribbean for over two decades including Rupee and Kerwyn Dubois, and brands such as Touch Vodka and more. Hector had this to share:
“While we are no strangers to managing top-tier artists, our goal for Bunji Garlin and Fay-Ann Lyons is to continue supporting their music career, while also developing their brand into a household name outside of music. We’ve developed a strategy that includes emphasizing the multitude of additional talents and introducing those talents to the world.”
According to the press release, throughout the pandemic, the soca couple has put health and wellness first, while focusing on their family and producing new music. Now that concerts and events are starting to come back, the Viking Band is ready to once again take over, but not just with music; the talented duo has their eyes set on entering other areas such as film, fashion, fitness, and more.
