Artiste manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah-Hanson, popularly known as Bulldog has taken a swipe at Reggae Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoy for what he described as his uninformed comment on artiste management in Ghana.
Stonebwoy on Saturday, June 27, 2020 revealed his general disregard for people who take artiste management as a profession. According to the Baafira hitmaker, no manager in the country can back with a certificate, the profession they claim to be practising.
However, Bulldog who has carved a niche for himself in Ghana’s entertainment industry through talent management expressed the opinion that Stonebwoy made those remarks due to the fall out between him and his manager.
To Bulldog, talent management is the knowledge or skill obtained from a period of practical experience with talents, especially that gained in a particular profession. He added that talent management is a labour of love.
“If you have a situation with your management team please don’t generalise it. To say which artiste manager in Ghana can show a certificate for management was distasteful and unschooled. Let us learn to respect each other’s contribution in this space,” Bulldog wrote.
He further added that “one’s handiwork and attainment in their chosen field makes them a master of their trade and not a certificate in form of a document. Their unceasing success in their field of work is all the certification they require. How joyous it would be to ask for a presidential certificate… 😂 😂”
He added that “Talent Managers aren’t celebrated in this country because their tale of toil don’t get told. I am a CERTIFIED TALENT MANAGER without a certificate.”
