TK & SK of Finesse Foreva named 'Music Entrepreneur of the Year' 2023 by YMB Awards

The much awaited Young Music Boss Awards returns on 20th April 2023 at Woolwich Works celebrating the best of the music industry's young executive talent.

London, 3rd March 2023

London-based independent record label and management company, Finesse Foreva (FF) have been awarded ‘Music Entrepreneur of the Year’ – the Young Music Boss Awards’ (YMBA) flagship title, presented in partnership with the Association of Independent Music (AIM).

Since launching in 2017, FF have been at the forefront of the UK Drill movement being home to groundbreaking artists such as Russ Millions, Skengdo & AM and superstar producer, JB Made It. FF’s growth and contribution have been undeniable, receiving a MOBO award, working with JB Made It on a track from Drake’s Dark Lane Demo Tapes, as well as generating multiple Platinum certifications and the first UK number one for a Drill track. Having recently introduced a publishing division, FF also continue to strive for excellence beyond the output of music through their Music Business Academy and community outreach initiatives.

The YMB Awards wish to celebrate FF’s outstanding achievements and commitment to driving the UK music industry forward. In accepting the award, FF co-founder TK said, “It’s important for achievements to be highlighted because it inspires others to aim for their dreams and do better. We’ve been nominated quite a few times for things but never actually won. This is a massive achievement and we feel really honoured. We can’t wait to get out there and do more!”

YMBA founder, Jusnah Gadi said: “Recognising entrepreneurial and executive talent is a key aspect of incentivising future generations of the music business. TK and SK demonstrate everything the YMBA Music Entrepreneur of the Year Award aims to exemplify, it is an honour to award this to them.”

Ben Wynter, Entrepreneur & Outreach Manager at AIM, commented: “Once again, AIM is delighted to partner with the YMB Awards and sponsor the ‘Entrepreneur Of The Year’ category. Independent music entrepreneurs are the heartbeat of the music industry. They are the early adopters that set new trends and the creative sparks that the rest of the industry follows. We are thrilled to see AIM Members SK & TK of Finesse Foreva be recognised for their ground-breaking work crossing over drill music to the mainstream as well as achieving the genre’s first UK number one. They epitomise the entrepreneurial spirit with their tenacity and drive which has seen them collaborate with some of the biggest names in UK & US music. They truly are deserving recipients of this award.”

The Young Music Boss Awards were conceived to support and empower young music professionals, whose achievements don’t always receive the attention they deserve. Aimed at U35 creatives and professionals, categories include ‘Best Manager’, ‘Best Publisher’, ‘Best Lawyer’, ‘Best Journalist’, ‘Best A&R’, ‘Best Label’, ‘Best Digital Platform’ and many more.

The sought-after title of ‘Music Entrepreneur of the Year’ is the headline category and is sponsored by the Association of Independent Music (AIM). Awarded last year to Michael Adex, who is founder and CEO of talent and entertainment company NQ, its purpose is to celebrate outstanding achievements in the field of music entrepreneurship. The night will be presented by prominent industry personalities and will feature live performances by today’s most exciting rising artists.

The YMB Awards will take place on April 20th 2023 at Woolwich Works. Limited corporate ticket packages are available on request by emailing:
