Artiste manager Kiki Banson has said persons who decide to manage artistes of the opposite sex must be self-disciplined in order to not mix business with pleasure.
“It’s a situation where your self-discipline has to come in and focus. If someway along the line you go off track, you are going to deal with the consequences,” the former manager of Becca told MzGee on 3FM’s SHwbiz927, Saturday.
His submission comes on the back of the brouhaha between eShun and her former manager Stephen Mensah.
The songstress in a recent interview disclosed that she cheated on her former manager and fiancé Stephen Mensah on two occasions because she was depressed, having been emotionally abused by her partner.
When their relationship turned sour a year ago, she denied any amorous relationship between her and the manager. She was reported to have said the working relationship ended after their 5-year contract expired.
eShun now says she dated Stephen while they worked as artiste and manager. She alleges that Stephen has refused to release credentials of her social media handles and is demanding a sum of hundred and twenty thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC120,000) be paid him if she is in dire need of the login details.
The development led to popular artiste manager Lawrence Nana Asiama Hanson (Bulldog) reiterating his position that in order to succeed, managers and their opposite sex artistes must establish sexual relationships. He emphasizes that he has stayed away from managing female artistes because he would sleep with them because of the nature of work.
“So, I work into the night, like around 12 am or 1 am, now this artiste lives in maybe Dansoman, I am from Dome, we work in Tema. I have to drive back like 3 am to Dansoman from Tema before I go to Dome. If we do this continuously for two weeks, we will start talking about other things… (that is why) I have said that any female artistes I manage I will always sleep with them,” he said.
But Kiki Banson maintains that “This is an individual situation. I don’t see anything wrong with [being managed by the opposite sex]. You just need to know where to draw the line. It’s an individual thing. It’s not a rule.”
