Ghanaian artiste manager Mr. Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson popularly known as Bulldog has taken to his social media accounts to reacts to statement made by dancehall king Stonebwoy after he said artiste managers need to have a certificate
1GADalso known as Stonebwoy made this comment on United Showbiz Show on UTV last night Saturday hosted by actress Nana Ama McBrown
According to him what Stonebwoy said was so unfortunate, disrespectful and unschooled on such a big television platform which is the most-watched program in Ghana now
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 contributions 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 make them a master of their trade and not a certificate in the 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 labor 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 doesn’t get told. I am a CERTIFIED TALENT MANAGER without a certificate. God bless the entertainment space and all stakeholders. #YEAROFRESTORATION #sikanhyiraadomaseda”
