Most Ghanaian artiste abandon their managers after acquiring visas – Mr. Logic

Emmanuel Barnes, popularly known as Mr. Logic, is a well-known entertainment analyst and manager of Ghanaian artists. He has expressed concerns regarding the practice of artists abandoning their managers after they become successful and secure visas for international performances.

Many Ghanaian artists, according to Mr. Logic, have a propensity to prioritise their personal goals over maintaining professional relationships. He explained how some artists desert their managers when they eventually become successful in the business, even after receiving years of encouragement and financial support from them.

Blakk Rasta, an entrepreneur and artiste manager, disclosed in an interview for 3FM’s Urban Blend that certain up-and-coming artists do not appreciate the work done by their manager since they have not gotten much recognition. He made the observation that they often cut ties with their managers, who played a crucial role in their early careers, once they receive visas for well-paying overseas engagements.

In Logic’s opinion, this desertion not only shows a lack of loyalty and trust, but it also undermines teamwork, which is crucial for success in the music industry.

He used an anecdote about one of the artists he managed leaving him after getting a visa to enter the UK to bolster his claim.

“As for our people here, you work hard for them, and they do not seem to recognise that.” People from different countries value the effort that music executives put forth. Because Mo has seen it all, I have no doubt that she will not let me down.

She claims she will not work with you since she is travelling to the United States and does not need a visa. The last artist I collaborated with decided not to work with me after obtaining a UK visa. Many of them view obtaining a visa as a significant achievement “, he remarked.

However, Mr. Logic is confident that Mo, his new artist, will not place him in a similar situation. He refused to provide the names of some of the artists he has managed who had experienced the same thing, but he insisted that “it is more as if you are attacking them, but this is what we go through.”
