Artist Manager Bulldog has responded to Ghanaian reggae and dancehall artist Stonebwoy on his comments about the qualification of Ghanaian artist managers.
Stonebwoy passed some comments concerning artist managers not having certificates to work, whiles he was a guest on Nana Ama McBrown’s United Showbiz that aired on UTV this past weekend.
Bulldog (real name Lawrence Asiamah Hanson) in a lengthy post on social media, described Stonebwoy’s comments as ‘distasteful and unschooled’.
He also asked Stonebwoy not to generalize his comment due to his situation of splitting with his long-term manager Blakk Cedi.
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 patronized 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 generalize 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.
Bulldog is the co-founder of BullHaus Entertainment and has managed some of the big names in Ghana music including Shatta Wale, VIP, and 5Five.
