JAY JAY EPEGA
INTERVIEW 2020 : Natalie Finer’s The Shy and Mighty Show
JAY JAY EPEGA on the conversation with
David Bowie that changed her life.
‘It’s been quite a journey!
I went to the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and during my last semester I did an internship with a PR company in Beverly Hills called Levine Communications working for a gentleman called Michael Levine. I had planned to become a diplomat, but when Michael offered me a job in his London office I took it!
I worked as an assistant to a gentleman called Alan Edwards, who at the time managed a lot of talent like, David Bowie, Janet Jackson, also covering some legal record company matters for George Michael. This experience threw me into the deep end of major accounts, working with major names, but this also gave me that discipline and appreciation for the business.
I was really fortunate because I’ve got to know a lot of the media and how it worked at the top end….. it’s kind of honed in a skill in me, where I had to learn to deal with all kinds of people… lots of very demanding people and also what wonderful, wonderful talents I met, which has helped me with my career to this day.
