After last Saturday`s edition of United Showbiz on UTV which was followed by almost all the players in our showbiz space, different commentaries have been generated from the show. Whilst some have praised Stonebwoy for his fluency, others have also criticized him for his position and understanding of the job of artistes managers in our music industry.
One of such people who have come against Stonebwoy on artistes management is Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson aka Bull Dog who happens to be the manager of Africa`s dancehall King Shatta Wale. Obviously after Stonebwoy`s fracas with his former manager Black Sidi, there seems to be a bad blood between the two and it showed in the submission of Stonebwoy yesterday when he was asked to talk about it.
Bull Dog disagrees with some comments he shared and has given a response to the 1GAD on his Facebook timeline. This website www.sammyflextv.com has published it below unedited for your knowledge.
The general disregard to Artiste Management as a profession, on United Showbiz the most watched and talked about TV Talk Show in Ghana hosted by seasoned and award winning actress, Empress Nana Ama McBrown on UTV, Ghana’s leading, most patronised and best-loved award winning television channel by one of Ghana’s top musical exports, Stonebwoy was so unfortunate.
If you have a situation with your management team please don’t generalise it.
To say which artiste manager in Ghana can show a certificate for management was distasteful and unschooled.
Let us learn to respect each other’s contribution in this space.
You were on the moral high ground about ‘disrespect in the game’ kindly heed to your counsel.
I’m not sure it will be appropriate for one to seek for an artiste’s certificate for them to be referred to as or become one.
Talent management is the knowledge or skill obtained from a period of practical experience with talents, especially that gained in a particular profession.
One’s handiwork and attainment in their chosen field makes them a master of their trade and not a certificate in form of a document.
Their unceasing success in their field of work is all the certification they require.
How joyous it would be to ask for a presidential certificate… 😂 😂
Talent management is a labour of love. Their efforts don’t generate into streams or laurels for themselves so their contribution to the grandiose victory is easily overlooked.
Talent Managers aren’t celebrated in this country because their tale of toil don’t get told.
I am a CERTIFIED TALENT MANAGER without a certificate.
God bless the entertainment space and all stakeholders.
