London, July 30 (IANS) Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik has signed with management company Turn First Artists, which is the home to the likes of Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora.
According to Billboard, Malik will be managed by the company’s Sarah Stennett, the same person responsible for Iggy Azalea’s career. The 22-year-old, who was previously signed to Modest! Management as a member of the British rock band, has yet to respond to the news, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Since departing One Direction earlier this year, Malik has been rumoured to be working on his solo music. Earlier this month, reports emerged claiming that he was dropped from Simon Cowell’s Syco record label.
Last week, Malik helped celebrate One Direction’s fifth anniversary by re-tweeting former bandmate Liam Payne’s post that read: “Wowwwww 5 years 5 boys what an amazing journey I couldn’t thank you all ever enough and thank you Louis Niall Harry and Zayn for everything.”
