STAY AWAY FROM STUBBORN ARTISTS - RICHIE TO ARTIST MANAGERS

STAY AWAY FROM STUBBORN ARTISTS – RICHIE TO ARTIST MANAGERS

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah has, advised artistes managers to stay away from unruly artistes.

He made this statement when he appeared as the guest speaker at the launch and seminar of the 2nd Edition of the Eastern Music Awards in Koforidua yesterday.

He was doing a presentation on artiste-manager relationships as a key factor for a successful music business.

Answering a question on how artistes managers can best cope and manage indiscipline, stubborn and incorrigible artistes, he said:

“Every artist manager should stay away from any artist that is stubborn and indiscipline, one that doesn’t appreciate your job as manager. He will be a trouble in the future.”

He added that artiste managers are like fathers to their artists. They most often put the best interest of their artist first and ensure the welfare of their artistes before themselves, yet artiste management is not appreciated.

“Artiste Management is the most unappreciative job in the world. Though they are many managers who run the affairs of an artist, the artist manager stands tall among them because he makes an artist to become the people’s choice,” he said.

Richie Mensah, who manages MzVee, Kwami Eugene and Kidi under Lynx Entertainment, concluded that up and coming artists are required also to choose the best manager they can find and to trust their managers at all times and have their best interest at heart.

Richie in the past has worked with musicians like Asem, OJ Black, Zigi, Eazzy among others.

Mount Rushmore Fireworks Display Ill Advised – Fire Expert

A fire expert has said a July 3 fireworks display at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial is ‘’ill-advised’’ due to the abnormally dry conditions and summer wildfires.

The event is expected to attract over 7,500 revellers with the president of the United States, Donald Trump in attendance.

The former fire management officer for Mount Rushmore, Bill Gabbert said shooting fireworks over ponderosa pine forest is extremely flammable and should not be done.

“Burning debris, the burning embers and unexploded shells fall into a ponderosa pine forest and ponderosa pine is extremely flammable,” said Gabbert.

The Mount Rushmore fireworks display to celebrate Independence Day has since 2009 not been observed due to a fire danger after a pine beetle infestation.

The U.S. Drought Monitor recently labelled almost all of southwestern South Dakota including most of the Black Hills as ‘’abnormally dry.’’

However, the National Park Service, which manages the memorial, has assured that fireworks display at Mount Rushmore poses only a slight fire risk.

Ian Fury, Republican Government Kristi Noem’s communication director revealed that the park service in April has taken several precautions, including performing an environmental assessment and conducting a large burn within the memorial’s borders.
