In May 2011, I-Octane partnered with TV personality and Communication Specialist Kerine Miller, to launch his own production company, “Conquer the Globe Productions Ltd”. The idea to start the company emerged out of I-Octane's growing need to manage and direct his own career as well as to assist other young artistes in developing their craft.
“Conquer the Globe is really a vehicle for me to manage and produce my own songs. So certain riddims will be birthed out of my camp and other artistes can voice on them, but this way, it is my project, so I have the freedom to decide which direction I want it to go. Also, I remember some of the things I went through as a young artiste and I know other people have similar experiences. With my company I can play my part in helping them to overcome some of the obstacles they are bound to face.”
Outside of producing music, the company will also provide upcoming artistes with various packages which can be purchased to help with their careers. “We realized that many people have the desire and the talent to become entertainers, but many of them don't have any idea what steps to take. Most of them don't have a lot of money to start with,” Kerine Miller stated. “So what we've done is brought together a team of people from various facets of the entertainment industry and created an affordable package that will help them get their foot in the door.”
Being wary of giving away too much information at this point. “We're still setting everything up,” I-Octane says. “Once everything is ready, we'll provide everyone with more details.”
Conquer The Globe Productions will not dedicate too much energy to signing and managing other artistes as it's main focus will be I-Octane. The singjay humbly admits that he still has much to learn about the industry and is committed to doing just that before he takes on the responsibility of managing someone else's career.
“I can't teach people what I don't know,” the artiste stated. “Maybe in the future we'll take on 1 or 2 artistes, but not yet...nothing before its' time.”
Both I-Octane and Miller are excited about the project and look forward to getting into full operating mode. Kerine summed it up by saying, “On one hand, there's definitely a need for the services we'll provide. On the other hand, the world has been wanting to get more of I-Octane – with the rise of Conquer the Globe Productions, they definitely will!!”
