Not many people are lucky enough to know what they’ve wanted to do as a career at such a young age. I have been pursuing the same dream since I was 6 years old.


I grew up in my great-grandmother Lillian Smith's house with 9 other family members. I shared a room with 3 of my cousins. My great-grandmother was an entrepreneur. Nobody in the family recognized that until I did a story with CBC talking about her being an entrepreneur. She had a candy store and sold baked goods & quilts - so growing up I would watch her do all of these things and make money from them to provide for her family. She was a hustler.


Storytelling came naturally for me as a young man growing up in North Preston. To many, music was the beginning of it all for me but what they don't know is that I started writing books first before ever writing music. Going to church in my home town I would watch choirs and soloists singing and drawing such raw emotion from the congregation which made me ask myself if I could provoke that same emotion out of folks as well using my voice and my stories. I always knew that I had a fascination with the art of storytelling and that I wanted to be like my grandmother. Of course, back then I didn't think of that as being an entrepreneur - I just wanted to be like her. To encourage change. To leave a legacy.


So I had this love for both storytelling and entrepreneurship, but I've never had an example of somebody in the black community who made a living from telling their stories here in Nova Scotia, hell, in Canada period being a full-time entrepreneur and venturing into business outside of the world of words. There was a void to be filled. Fast forward to here and now - I realize the purpose in all of that. A majority of the things I do today are based on me looking for examples of these things as a kid and not being able to find them. Me looking for the blueprint - not realizing that one day I would become the blueprint.


I have such a long way to go. But I believe in my vision so much that I know anything I touch will be successful. Even failure is a success in my eyes. Failure isn't anything but redirection and a moment to build strength and character.


So what is KBeals Entertainment? It is a place of creative freedom. A place to share your perspective. To tell your story. The place where kids can see their biggest dreams come to life. KBeals Entertainment is the world I would go to as a kid as I sat in my room and dreamed of a better life for me and my family. It is a place built off of the shoulders of my grandmother. It is a company that will one day go down in history for not only being successful financially - but also for breaking chains and making a difference along the way. KBeals Entertainment is a manifestation of my imagination.


Owner, Keonté Beals
