The fading of the boys –Why Urban Boyz will struggle in future

m_The fading of the boys –Why Urban Boyz will struggle in future

Former Urban Boyz manager Alex Muyoboke recently claimed that had he not been dismissed by the crew, he would have led to them to Primus Guma Guma Super Star glory – I couldn’t agree more. The role of a manager is sometimes undermined but not so few, yet they carry an enormous burden of uplifting and popularizing the talents of musicians. Muyoboke has worked with Dream Boyz and Tom Close, all of whom enjoyed spells of unbelievable success.

But it was at Primus Guma Guma Super Star that the Urban Boyz realized how important it is to have someone who oversees your activities. At the time Muyoboke went to drum support for Riderman who eventually won it, further fuelling speculations that he might be nearing a deal with the rapper. Urban Boyz further flopped when they ended up runners-up to the rapper.

Looking at both Dream Boyz and Tom Close both of whom Muyoboke managed, one would not be wrong to conclude that the two are going downhill – and very fast. Dream Boyz have struggled to re-establish the authority they once had, and although Tom Close won season one of Primus Guma Guma Super Star, he has slowly faded and looks as if he’s riding on his past glory.

One famous radio presenter once predicted a slow but sure downfall of Urban Boyz and he wasn’t far off the mark. According to him, the success the boys enjoyed is largely attributed to the good management of Muyoboke, and given the fact that they also have label house to manage, combining the two will be more than a daunting task. Let’s just wait and see.
