The CEO of ‘925 Music’ has finally spoken for himself on the many claims and reasons why he is no longer the manager of one of the young and famous female artistes in Ghana, Yaa Jackson.
According to the CEO, he was only acting as a manager for the songstress since that was what her family wanted which they now want to continue from where he reached.
“…it was a favor I did for her family and her as well, the family says they now want to continue with her managerial affairs” he confirmed.
According to him, his “decision to stop working with her does not mean she is alone because her elder brother, Akwasi Jackson, is currently her manager.
In an interview with Fante Quoo, host of Inside Prime Page, the CEO of 925 recording label could not accept reports of him being sacked because he was spending sums of money which belonged to the artiste but also failed to decline.
“I have personally heard people saying that, but I see it be better than my name been mentioned for sexually harassing her or something worse than that because when artist and manager go their separate ways is normal for people to sight money misappropriation to be the cause which is not entirely so in my case”
“How much money does Yaa Jackson earn? he questioned, “the shows are not coming, so it will be hard to make a bounty harvest for me to even steal some”
Asked how much they used to charge for a show and the amount he gives to the artiste(Yaa Jackson) after the show, the unblushing former manager revealed that they currently sometimes collect Nine thousand Ghana cedis (Ghc9000) but gives the artiste less than thirty percent of the money.
Yaa Jackson, daughter of renowned Kumawood filmmaker, Jackson K. Bentum, is now managed by her senior brother, Akwasi Bentum. She is noted for her hit songs; ‘Tear Rubber, ‘Ehy3 papa’, et al.
