Taking to his Facebook timeline, Rex Omar noted that the artiste managers here in Ghana are just errand boys adding that only very few are managing their artistes.
He stressed that any manager who cannot generate at least 60% to your revenue stream in line with your business plan if any is not worth your time as an artiste.
” Most artiste managers here in GH are just errand boys, only very few are managing their artistes. Any manager who cannot generate at least 60% to your revenue stream in line with your businessplan if any is not worth your time as an artiste. Real artiste managers get the business done based on a strategic plan, ie getting booking agents, publishing deals, recording deals, endorsement deals, developing the said talents, financial management deals etc. They must be people with clout and connections in both the local and international music industry and we don’t have many of such in this country unfortunately,” he wrote.
His comments come after Stonebwoy on UTV’s United Showbiz programme stated that artiste managers should provide certificates for their trade.
