1.How is business?
Business is going great!
2.How was Ju-Ju promotions formed?
Ju-Ju's Promotions was formed when I began managing The Arsynal Entertainment in 2009. Being Ju Ju The Promoter, I enjoy helping independent artists so I started doing showcases, flyers, hosting, event planning and album covers. As this progressed I made it official, "Ju Ju's Promotions".
3.What made you wanna get into the promotions and marketing side of things.
I enjoy listening to independent music, and I have noticed how he/she don't get the support and love that is needed in this industry. That is why I started doing promotions and marketing so I could help these artist rise to the top. I do these showcases to help these artists get a lot of exposure and any things they need to get their music out there. I believe talent should not be wasted.
4.Tell readers exactly where your from?
I was born in Huntsville, AL but was raised in Deming, New Mexico. I have been back here in Bama for about 5 years now.
5.What artist are you currently working with?
I am working with Sun Fa Sho, he is also C.E.O of The Arsynal Ent. and then I got T-Money.
6.How are the open mic and showcases been going?
The showcases have been doing really well! I have noticed what hard work does. I believe in putting on a great show and people have shown a lot of love from Huntsville and
surrounding areas. I plan on continuing to do these and I am working on doing some shows in Birmingham, by mid to late summer of this year.
7.What's the hardest thing about booking hardest for you when doing showcases?
Hardest thing about booking is when an artist confirms to do a show and then doesn't show, is very frustrating. Artists need to understand that when you get into the actual "industry" and you do this with other promoters they will not give you another chance. We have to be professional.
8.How is the Sun Fa Sho project been doing?
Sun Fa Sho project has been doing good. He just recently releases his mixtape "Legal Dope" in May 2014. Our current project is continuing these shows and TAE Productions, another branch from The Arsynal Ent.
9.Whats coming up in future for Ju-Ju Promotions?
I have a lot of things coming up. Currently working on clothing line. Hope to see this done by Spring 2015.
10.Whom are some of the artist people need to be looking out for who have strong followings from your events?

There is a lot more to name but not enough time,Its talent all thru the city new talent & vets in the game,but just know that Huntsville has TALENT!
11.What's the best and worst thing about being a promoter?
Being a promoter has it's up's and down's but there is never a dull moment. Best thing is seeing these artists do their best and appreciate what I do. Worst thing is not being able to help everybody.
