A TEENAGER who has been running a growing artist management company from his garage wants to reveal to the entertainment industry that he just 17 years old.

Sina Gharib, from Apsley, has a roster of up and coming UK hip hop act as well as models, actors, presenters and sports people signed up to his management and booking agency P-King Group.

When he is not at West Herts College studying business and marketing, he is organising advertising campaigns for clients in the consumer goods and media industries – and many of the contacts he deals with don’t have a clue how young he is.

He said: “I don’t tell people my age and they don’t ask but now I want to get some sort of recognition for it.

“I want to reveal my age now because the business is doing well and I want to follow in the footsteps of famous young entrepreneur Jamal Edwards.”

The former pupil of John F Kennedy School has registered his company, does his own accounts and pays people who work for him on commission.

He is currently working on the promotion for the UK tour of American rapper Glasses Malone and has been in talks with radio station bosses.

Sina said: “My clients know how old I am and I think they respect me more because of my age.

“However, they are always in disbelief when I tell them.

“I’ve always liked to be different.

“I see myself as the next Simon Cowell.”
