Kbrown Lankan is not a new name to the UK entertainment scene. He is a renowned celebrity bodyguard who has built a successful empire. Lankan is the founder/CEO of Supremee Group UK, a private security firm offering protection services for high-ranking politicians, A-list celebrities, and the elite. He has worked for top celebrities/prominent leaders including Burna Boy, J Cole, Lil T Jay, and former Pakistan Prime Minister, Nawaz Shariff. But what most do not know about Kbrown Lankan is that there was a point in his life where he had nothing to his name. He has had to build his brand from the ground up singlehandedly, and he now shares with us his journey to the top.
According to Kbrown Lankan, also known as CEO K, the security services industry is not a field he ever thought of joining. Lankan grew up in a high-crime neighborhood plagued by guns and violence. Coming from such an environment, he knew making it in any industry would be a challenge.
Lankan was struggling financially, and he wanted to make ends meet. With few options, he joined the hood and was sucked into crime at a very young age. Before he knew it, he was involved with criminal gangs and was soon arrested.
Looking back, Lankan says this is where his journey to joining the private security industry began. His time in prison exposed him to a harsh reality, and he realized that he needed to focus on his goals to have a better future. This also meant staying away from illegal activities.
After he was released from prison, Lankan joined the security services industry. He enrolled in an SIA course, a mandatory requirement for anyone looking to work behind a bar or in a nightclub in the UK. This enabled Lankan to get his first job.
Lankan began working the doors at London nightclubs, a job he held for several years before leaving to start his own company. While working at the nightclubs, he met and served prominent names in the entertainment industry and society, most of whom loved his services.
Lankan got jobs escorting rappers, and in time, his clientele grew to high-ranking politicians and A-list celebrities. To cater to his growing clients, he launched Supremee Group UK.
His great professional attitude and skills enabled him to stake his place and build an excellent brand many want to work for. Supremee Group UK is a known security company in the UK providing different services, including secure transportation, bodyguarding and private chauffeur services.
Even though Lankan’s journey was challenging, he has not given up. He decided to change his life and took the first step. Since then, Lankan has not looked back. He is using his company and other platforms to empower young entrepreneurs by giving others a chance to rebuild their lives.
The road to success is not easy. There are countless obstacles, but that does not mean it is impossible to reach the top. What really matters is what you are willing to do to achieve that dream. For Lankan, this meant acknowledging his mistakes and investing in a better future. He took a risk and paid for the SIA course, which cost roughly £400, and he never regretted it.
