"Managing Female Artists Can Land Me Into Trouble, I Am Unprofessional" - Bulldog Confesses
Artiste manager, Lawrence Asiamah Hanson known in showbiz as Bulldog has revealed that in order to avoid falling into series of temptations and troubles in the Ghanaian Music Industry, he will never manage any female artiste in the country.
According to him, he rather prefers to manage male Artistes adding that it will help him flee from being tempted since he is unprofessional.
Speaking on an Accra based Television he said “If my Artiste lives at Dome whiles I live at Dansoman and the studio is in Tema. Definitely, we will get tired but since I am unprofessional, I can’t keep her around me all night. I have to avoid temptation”
He also noted that many managers have suffered various degrees of such temptations which has led to break up in their marriages likewise courtships.
The Artiste Manager used the opportunity to clarify the sacking of the Militants from the SM Family.
“My Boss has taken it upon himself to take care of these guys. He needs to leave a legacy but it is unfortunate that some of the Militant misused the opportunities given. They were just jokers”
He hinted that although he and Shattawale pathed ways, he (Bulldog) asked the SM President to do away with the Militants after their reunion but he (Shatta) turned a deaf ear.
“My work ethics has helped me a lot. When I see a talent, I am able to identify one. So if I see a talent who is not serious on the job but pays attention to fame, then it tells me you are not ready to work” he stressed.
Bulldog noted that it is uncertain if the Militants will be called back again although the three have signed a life time contract with Shattawale.
Mr. Hanson tasked the trio to recollect, work on their mistakes and re-occupy their vacant position they left behind in the Shatta Movement Family
He debunked allegation that the trio are not talented stressing that with enough grooming from Management, they will changed their style of singing forever.
“There is nothing wrong if anybody writes a song for somebody. It is natural” he justified.
He advised the young men and women to stay focused adding that they might be recalled.
President of the Shatta Movement, Charles Nii Armah Mensah known in showbiz as Shattawale has thrown shades at his Militant group saying they don’t have him at heart. According to Shatta wale in a live video, he revealed that although he is an industrious person, he does not mix business with pleasure. He said “I am a very hardworking person. I also play around for his fans to see him as a comic character and more, he doesn't joke with his work at all. He has sacked the three from the SM Movement.
