Veteran Ghanaian music executive Mark Okraku Mantey, in comments echoing recently controversial utterances from Bulldog, says as an artist manager its probably better to date your artist.
According to Okraku Mantey, it is frustrating to invest a lot in an artist only to have her under the control of another man probably because they are married.
The CEO of Slip Music told Hitz Fm that he has never dated a female artist in 20 years of management but he understands the argument people make for that.
“Some man will sit in his house and take decisions for you because you have invested in his wife and he will call the shots…and because your money is in there, you will conform whether it will help your investment or not, or else the man will say she won’t work with the manager anymore.” he complained.
“I’m talking based on the environment as in Ghana,” he added.
His comments echo those of BullHaus CEO Bulldog, who recently said a manager can only properly manage a female artist by sleeping with them.
