Celebrated gospel artist, Joyce Blessing has debunked rumors seeking to establish a perceived acrimony between herself and former manager, Kwesi Ernest.
“I have no problem with him. It was his will not to work on my new song. I remember him for all the good things he has done for me. He [Kwesi] knows very well that I am not one of those troublesome artists”, she pointed out in an interview with Akwasi Aboagye on the Entertainment Review show on Saturday.
She further gave an allusion that if she had issues with her former management [Media Excel], she wouldn’t have featured on SP Kofi Sarpong’s Concert which was held recently at the National Theatre.
SP Kofi Sarpong is currently under the umbrella of Kwesi Ernest’s Media Excel.
In a tape that has received a lot of public interest and criticism, Music Producer, Kwesi Ernest is captured wailing profusely about his awful experiences in the Music industry for the past eighteen years.
Per grapevine, Joyce Blessing has been colored as a catalyst in Kwesi’s dirge with reason that painted her as ungrateful when she defected from Media Excel.
According to the “Heavy Price” hit maker, she broke up with her erstwhile management on peaceful grounds. Thus, any comment seeking to dent her as ungrateful is void and without basis.
“When I heard about the surprise birthday party organized for him, I decided to partake in it. Unfortunately, I didn’t meet him when I got to the supposed venue”, she tipped.
Touching on the issue of the ungrateful attitude of gospel artists, Joyce was quick to defend that not all of them are ungrateful. She was quick to add that some artists are compelled to switch management amidst unfavorable working conditions.
“The problem mostly comes from the nature of the contract signed. It is every artist’s dream to work with a higher management. But the conditions may be unfavorable. Sometimes the artists may have the fame with nothing in their pockets”, she lamented.
On the same topic, Showbiz activist, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo shares a similar belief that music Producers are to blame for the attitude of some gospel artists.
According to him, Producers do not manage these artists for gratis, but operate within the frames of conducting business. In this regard, the challenges that come with it must be endured.
