Matthew ‘MafDotYou' Francis, first broke into the music industry as an artist in 2011. After realising his interests were more aligned to the business aspects of the genre, he launched his first business Spotlight Entertainment, in events management.
Spotlight would prove successful and helped him build connections in the entertainment industry, whilst forming a young, talented team around him. Spotlight has since hosted some of the Midlands’ biggest national tours, festivals, club nights and concerts, with artists such as J Hus, Mostack, Mist, Sneakbo and Krept and Konan making appearances and guest-performing. His work with Spotlight placed him at number 4 on The Midlands Urban Entrepreneurs List for 2014 and 2015, whilst also ghost-writing for many successful artists, helping creating a number of hits in the UK.
