Abou “Bu” Thiam Career
Abou “Bu” Thiam Career – Abou “Bu” Thiam began spreading out as Akon became a multiplatinum R&B performer, playing a role in the early careers of Lady Gaga, Jeremih, and T-Pain. (“They laughed at me the first time I brought T-Pain into a record label,” he says.) He was appointed as vice president of A&R at Def Jam at the age of 28 — the youngest person ever to hold that position — and was introduced to West by the label’s then-CEO, Antonio “L.A.” Reid, who invited him to West’s Hawaii studio while he was recording “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.”
Thiam recalls, “I met him and we just kinda clicked.” “And then, just as I was about to go, Ye said to L.A., ‘Yo, can he remain here with me?’ L.A. was taken aback and exclaimed, “What the f–k?” “I don’t know either, man,” I said.
West invited him to A&R his 2011 Jay-Z duet, “Watch the Throne,” after the two built a bond. Thiam continued to broaden his horizons, focusing on artist management – “a lot of times managers didn’t see the complete vision of the artist the way I saw it” – as well as founding his own firm, BuVision, and producing an affordable internet access service in Africa. But it took some convincing for him to agree to live with West full-time.
On Kanye West’s album Watch the Throne, he served as an executive producer. He was a part of the A&R team for his brother Akon’s multi-platinum Trouble album.
Abou “Bu” Thiam works as a manager for Def Jam Records. He rose to the position of co-CEO of Konvict Muzik.
Abou “Bu” Thiam signed T-Pain in 2005 and was the driving force behind the success of T-debut Pain’s album.
Abou “Bu” Thiam managed top American musician Kanye West for some time. However, some years ago Kanye West announced on Twitter, saying; “I no longer have a manager. I cannot be managed.”
As West’s manager, Thiam was in charge of juggling all aspects of what he refers to as “Yeezy City,” a business metropolis populated by 150 employees, which on any given day might entail working on West’s Adidas sneaker line, his music (“the new album, ‘Donda,’ is slated for release this year,” he insists).
