NGOZI GOLD : What are the functions of an artiste Manager and why does an artiste , music label or an entertainment personality or business need a publicist ?
LIL B : First of all if a Record label signs an artist , he or she needs Publicity to be known, you sell the brand/ music, image and face of the entertainer. A combination of the entertainers Publicity and talent is what brings fame. But of course who GOD has blessed no man can curse.......
An artist manager also does management of funds and business negotiations for the entertainer , Gets the shows , recognizes and packages opportunities that will bring good business and success for the entertainer, keeps the artiste away from trouble and free from controversy .......See ernnnhhhhh an artiste manager is literally the Daddy , Mummy ,Uncle, Aunty, Friend of the artiste.. "The speak and stand for your interest" , and "the take the hit and shit for you".The Record label owners are business men! They invest a lot of maoney to make the artiste successful , and they turn that fame into a money making venture for them and the artiste, so ITS MY JOB TO MAKE SURE THE ARTISTE AND LABEL BECAME FAMOUS..
