Celebrated Ghanaian playwright and motivational speaker, James Ebo Whyte widely known as Uncle Ebo Whyte, has voiced concerns about the indiscipline prevailing among some Ghanaian artistes, attributing it to the lack of proper management.

According to him, a lot of the people that artistes appoint as their managers lack the power to enforce discipline. He stressed that the absence of effective artist management has led to erratic behavior, missed opportunities, and a general lack of professionalism among some Ghanaian crooners.

He further detailed that the situation has contributed to a lot of lapses in how artistes do business with event organisers and other people in the entertainment ecosystem.

“We do not have many of our artistes who have managers that they respect. In many cases, the person he introduces as his manager is nothing more than a glorified messenger. So the manager cannot ask him to do anything he decides not to do,” he said.

Emphasizing on indiscipline on the part of Ghanaian artistes, the Roverman Production boss divulged that there had been instances where some musicians appeared late at events, or charged fees for events and did not turn up because they did not have anyone to whip them into line.

He again cited an artiste who was billed to perform at a concert in the United Kingdom but couldn’t make it to the show on the day because he had passed out from overdose of drug intake.

Uncle Eno to a greater extent asserted that in order for the entertainment industry to take shape, a lot of these concerns must be paid attention to.
