The Award Winning PROMOTER OF THE YEAR, JKnowTruth has taken the east coast by storm with his innovative, ground-breaking concepts for marketing, promoting and event planning. He is a creative, passionate, and diligent young man who has mastered every entity he engages in. Jervay (“JKnowTruth”) Vanderhorst is a native of Charleston, SC, but grew up in Charlotte, NC.
JKnowTruth is an individual that believes in taking your destiny into your own hands. He’s a businessman…an entrepreneur—CEO of Street Dreamaz Entertainment (SDE), which made its debut in 2001. SDE is a promotions and marketing company based out of Charlotte, NC. Using creative marketing strategies and promotions, JKnowTruth has helped launch careers for artists such as: 50 Cent, Plies, Floetry, Akon, Young Jeezy, Eve and several other clients.
Recently blessed with the opportunity to join the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards team in Las Vegas, NV for the previous 4 years! Also honored to work under the umbrella of the late legendary Dick Clark Productions Super Bowl Weekend for the annual NFL Honors. Other notable events worked include: BET Hip Hop Awards (Miami), Black Girls Rock (New Jersey), BET Awards (Los Angeles), Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards (Los Angeles), Latin Grammy’s (Las Vegas), Latin Billboard Awards (Miami), ESPYS (Los Angeles), BET Honors (D.C.), BET Awards (Los Angeles), BET Hip-Hop Awards (Atlanta), BET Celebration of Gospel (Los Angeles).
Very versatile, therefore he’s more than a CEO, more than a promoter—he is also an event coordinator/host. He is highly requested because he brings life to any event…naturally. Not only does JKnowTruth host events for others…he created his own. He is the host of One Mic Mondays, an event that gives aspiring artists and entrepreneurs an opportunity to be recognized for their talents.
JKnowTruth has proven himself to be a jack of all trades. He can host, organize events and promote with ease. If anything of importance is taking place you will hear bystanders buzzing and saying, “ask “J” he “knows” (origination of “JKnow” and he always speaks the “truth”). “Strive to overachieve what is expected of you” is the motto JKnowTruth has followed to become who is… leaving very little room to wonder why he is a champion!
