Be careful if your manager wants to be a ‘superstar’ more than you – Fameye cautions artistes about their managers

651

Ghanaian musician, Fameye has delivered a cautionary message to fellow musicians, urging them to be cautious when dealing with managers who prioritize their own fame over the well-being of the artistes they represent.

 

In a recent Facebook post on August 14, the “Praise” singer advised fellow musicians to exercise caution when considering deals with managers who display a desire to become more famous than the artistes themselves.

“If you are an artiste and your manager wants to be a superstar than you? Be careful, is either you signed a wrong deal or a Devil came in a form of an angel (sic)????,” he shared.

He warned that such situations might indicate either a wrong deal or the presence of deceptive individuals masquerading as beneficent figures.

Fameye, who has also found himself in such a situation in the past, made the comments against the backdrop of a growing trend of strained relationships between artistes and their managers, which has become a topic of concern in the industry.

In a previous interview on the Entertainment Segment of Tv3 New Day, the ‘Twa So’ hitmaker revealed that he amicably resolved the ownership dispute with his former record label, OGB Music despite monetary gains from his music streams continuing to benefit his former boss.

“I am just happy I have been able to pay. He still has my songs. He is taking monies from the streams of my songs”.

He stated that some record labels perceive that artists signed on their labels have nothing to offer due to the help rendered to them (artistes) to usually give them exposure and promote their music.

“Talent is money, and the record label is also bringing the physical money. So both of us are supposed to do business. But we make it look like record labels or managers are rather helping artistes and the artistes have nothing to offer. While they are bringing in the talent and lots of energy onboard,” he pointed out.

Born as Peter Famiyeh Bozah, Fameye gained prominence through his participation in the third season of the MTN Hitmaker reality show.

His hit single “Nothing I Get” became widely recognized, earning him the Best New Artist of the Year award at the 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs). He also went on to win the Songwriter of the Year award at the 23rd Vodafone Ghana Music in 2022.
