Emeli Sandé has stayed out of the spotlight for the most part since the success of her debut album Our Version of Events in 2012. But as she gets back on her music grind, she'll be moving forward with her own management company, Jupiter Management, which she launched this week in partnership with Roc Nation.
The move means Sandé has split from her longtime manager Adrian Sykes, who has shepherded the 28-year-old singer's career since she was 16. There doesn't appear to be any hard feelings, however, as Sandé thanked Sykes in a long Instagram caption announcing the Roc Nation deal. "I love my former manager, he had been a father figure to me since I moved to London at 16, we had such an incredible journey together," she wrote in the caption. "I'm so thankful to him & his family for all their love and support & I'm immensely proud of what we achieved together. As I grew & changed rapidly from a girl into a woman though, I felt I had to begin to find the perfect match for me at this stage in my life & career."
