Chief Executive Officer of Slip Music, Mark Okraku Mantey, has been offered a new job as programmes manager at Hitz 103.9 FM in Accra.
Mark is a renowned music producer and regular judge on TV3 Mentor. He recently clocked 40 and starts his new job this February.
He has produced over 80 albums from some of Ghana’s best musicians including Lord Kenya, Adane Best, Slim Buster, Oheneba Kissi, Nana Tuffour, Mr. Solomon, Kojo Akan, Swazi B, Joe Fraizer, George Jara, Ewura Esi, OD4, Okuraseni Samuel, Nana Yaw, Nana Yaw Kumi, Benji, Nana Yaw Asare, Felix Bell, Rev. Mensah Bonsu and Ernest Addison.
In a recent interview with News-One Mark confirmed reports that he is currently furthering his studies: “I am studying Marketing with the aim of doing my Masters in Communication. And then later PhD. The idea is that the Creative Arts need someone who can speak the language that the professors, academia, politicians and the corporate world understand. So if we need something done, we can find one of us who can go do the lobbying.
If we just focus on the creative side, who would take the mantle to do the lobbying? Billy Ocean Of Peace FM is done with his MBA, Kwabena Billson is in my school as a teaching assistant, and Nii Lantey is a Medical Doctor. So gradually we would have a lot of us out there.
I also want to inspire those with the ability and the desire to further their education to do so. Education brings some changes and some beauty.”
