-Mark Okraku-Mantey has called on artiste managers to date their female musicians
-According to him, that is the only way to enhance efficiency of work
-He says that would also safeguard all investments made in the artiste
Controversial showbiz personality, Mark Okraku-Mantey, has urged artiste managers to have amorous relationship with their female artistes.
According to him, that is the surest way for the managers to safeguard their investments made in the artistes.
He also said ‘chopping’ one’s female artiste would also ensure efficiency at work, according to a report by Myjoyonline.com
Mark Okraku-Mantey is best known for his role as a judge in the popular music reality show, TV3 Mentor, which aired some years ago on television.
He is currently the chief executive officer (CEO) of Slip Entertainment, a music production and promotion firm.
In explaining his point, Mark says with the current terrain in the music industry, dating one’s female artiste is the best way to go.
He is of the view that some female artistes turn out to be ungrateful to their managers when they reach the peak of their career.
These musicians then begin to shun their manager, especially those married ones, when their husbands begin to influence them.
“I’m talking based on the music environment. 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 with his decisions even if that will not help your investment. Or he can even ask his wife not to work with you anymore,” Mark said.
He however cleared himself, saying he has not dated any of the female artistes he has managed for the past twenty years, but he is “speaking from experience.”
Meanwhile, Bulldog also made a similar remark last year.
He even encouraged married managers not to have female artistes on their record label because that would endanger his marriage.
