Songstress Efya has indicated that it is ridiculous for an artiste manager to say to the only way to be successful managing a female artiste is by engaging in a sexual relationship with her.
Artiste manager, Bulldog was reported to have said that the success of any manager of a female artiste will be achieved if the manager engages in a sexual relationship with the artiste.
But speaking to Kofi Asante of Bolgatanga-based A1 Radio, Efya indicated that it is ridiculous for an artiste manager to have that thought.
“I think it’s ridiculous for an artiste manager to say that. It is ridiculous for him to suggest this,” she said.
She indicated that business should always be separated from work and therefore there will always be success even if an artiste and her manager are not engaged in any form of sexual relationship.
“We are here to make money not boyfriends so we at all times separate business from the relationship because it’s the business that has to be sustained. Relationships can break anytime so the perception that you need to date your manager before you can be successful in music is ridiculous,” she told a1radio’s, Kofi Asante.
