Zayn Malik Signs With New Management

LONDON (VIP NEWS) — Zayn Malik has signed a deal with Turn First Artists, where he`ll be managed by Sarah Stennett, who has also guided the career of Iggy Azalea.

Malik was previously part of the Modest! Management family as a member of One Direction, but turned to Turn First to help launch his solo career.

Stennett started Turn First as a management and branding company in 2011, with support from Universal Music Group chairman/CEO Lucian Grainge. In addition to Azalea, the London-based company also works with Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora.

Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Malik is still a part of Simon Cowell`s Syco Music roster, which will likely shepherd his solo material. One Direction is currently touring North America, and Malik recently tweeted at his "bro" Liam Payne on the group`s five-year anniversary.
