Born Ernest Kwablah, social media guru/strategist and talent manager, Quables is in the league of extraordinary young people who are building the next phase of the future.
It’s not such a bold claim for the young ‘Advertising Titan’ and KNUST alumni having the statistics and accolades to back this assertion.
He manages the talents of evocative Dance God Lllyod, a rhythmic dance virtuoso putting Afrobeat dance on the map. And it doesn’t end there, the likes of the skilful painter, Chukwu the painter, Only Djay and the Euphoric Dance With a Purpose academy are all under his effective management.
When he’s not doing the above-mentioned, he’s creating content, strategising or marketing ideas for his diverse clientele at an Advertising agency with an infectious smile. (Don Draper would sure be jealous of this creative chap)
However, this is not the pinnacle of success for him, making people happy and in his own words “being a positive force in the lives of other people” does the trick easily.
A gym/healthy living enthusiast, entrepreneur and a member of a Reality show on Youtube, Quables embodies it all.

You wear several hats in the creative industry. When did this career begin for you ??

You seem to enjoy a wonderful relationship with Dance God Lloyd. What is it really like working with a rising global talent ??
Q: It’s been an amazing journey, it’s been almost 7 years managing @Dancegodlloyd and we have grown steadily to the top and trust me the best is yet to come. We have our ups and downs but we have come very far. There is no giving up anytime soon
How is the Lockdown, COVID-19 and social distancing affecting you as a creative??
Q: It has really affected us and the plans we had for the year. We had performances at festivals in different countries. However, everything has come to a halt now so we’re a bit limited.
But I dare say that as creatives we can never be boxed. We make the most out of every situation. We’ve been creating a lot of content in our homes for brands to share on social media.
We also have a back up for the rainy days so tons of content have been stocked up which we release daily to keep our pages active.

Q: The Future is very very bright. All the talents I manage are doing so well and we will take over the world soon. When they do well my brand does well 😊
Before we leave you, what is your message to brands who are still unsure of the potency of social media.
Q: I feel like Covid-19 made them realize social media is the future … During this period when nobody goes out, social media is the only way people are entertained or receive information faster. People spend more time online. There’s no better time to take advantage of social media than now by creating contents their audience can consume. Brands should consider transitioning to online fully and possibly train their staff to be efficient online.
