I’m glad to use this opportunity to clear and hammer some of the worrying issues in terms of the managerial in our music industry. I have tried to be silent on this kind of issues concerning artists and their management but I felt it would be “dirty” on my part if I allowed it “rot”. Artists in this region easily forgets or quickly forgets the duties or responsibilities of management, or should I say is ignorance.
Management and Financial Management are never the same. Artists under management in this municipality turns to think it’s the responsibility of managers to support them financially. That appears funny to me, let me kindly educate you on one basic thing. It is the nature of our industry that has compelled managers to sympathize with artists with regards to supporting them financially which basically is not mandatory on the managers.
Artists are rather required in the music industry to pay management for the roles they play for example, the promotion of artists on social media, protecting the good name of the artist, the image as well and any other role deemed professional.
Artists upon hearing that, he/she is signed under a management, now starts to put burden on “that” his manager forgetting the need to help him/herself. Haha . It is only in this region artists will say to his manager “masa”, I don’t have clothes to go for the show woo” when he/she is totally aware that both of you are all still on underground movement. The show he is going to perform, nothing worth is coming from it. YES THEY KNOW THAT…
TO BE HONEST WITH GOD AND MYSELF, I have never spent a CEDI consciously from this whole game from any of the artists I have ever managed. So I am very sure same thing my colleagues went through and are still going through.
But I can blame my fellow managers that they have been naive like me when I rushed in picking artists claiming to manage or without knowing the reasons through investigations, very sad.
The most vital area is sheer disrespect and disloyalty to their management. They go behind painting their management black to their opponents all because of greediness. How do you expect to make it if you do not intend helping yourself? You think is that easy to pay for studio bills? Why did you rush for management when you knew you could handle things by yourself?
The funniest aspect is they expect to make money within few days with their management after they start to hear people whisper this “guy” is damn good. Or even show off. Sorry is not that simple broz it is patience.
Some will go like this..” Ayiii n manager turi man buoran kuu firi ma. Bo jie ti gaa dabuo en ny3 fans? Ann gbaan bamiii? Gili kurihi ny3 bei en na ban”..
See I felt so sorry about myself on a case with a “guy” when I was called for a radio interview which I respected then attended thinking it would been a good platform to reveal to the general public how we mangers are suffering and artists keeps being ungrateful only to feel it was a sabotage because I had to clear the air and to have proven all those untruths said about me where entirely false and I was never given the opportunity, poor me.
To the presenters on radio stations, why must I always be invited to talk about my unfortunate incidents when I expect same with my fortunate incidents but do not get the opportunity?
This is entirely obvious I know I’m not the only 1 affected so I will just be quite on that and continue….
THE PUBLIC SHOULD STOP PAMPERING ARTISTS SAYING THEIR MANAGEMENT ARE USING THEM WITHOUT KNOWING THE SECRET BEHIND…
