Love For Music, Love For Business
Sanders’s introduction to the music industry occurred while he was still in high school, as a member of a gospel rap trio. He knew then that music was his true love. It was there that he met producer K-Rab, and the two planned to open a record label together. After graduation, he set out on his planned path and attended Morris Brown College. Unfortunately, his school’s financial difficulties and their loss of accreditation forced Sanders to enlist in the military, hoping to earn the funds needed to kickstart the label.
However, life had other plans, and Sanders returned home from active duty as a disabled veteran, becoming a stay-at-home father. He refused to give up on his dreams and chose to delve into sales, eventually earning the moniker Boomman from customers who noted his booming success in selling jewelry, cars, and shoes.
Despite early setbacks, Lavour knew what he wanted and had the hunger to lead himself there. This sense of drive opened the doors for him to become the biggest club promoter in his area, catching the attention of a major record label and becoming a force in the industry.
