Yesterday an uproar was in the Dancehall Fraternity after upcoming artist Bakkman asked Mr.G to terminate the management contract they have.
Mr.G was interviewed by the Jamaica Star and told the star he is not terminating the contract while taking jabs at Dexta Daps saying Dexta is one of the people who are causing the issue.
Blakkman however says he is not taking anything away from Mr.G because he always tells everyone Mr.G helped him in the beginning but feels at this point Mr.G is more concerned about his own career as an artist so he wants to terminate the contract and move on and move around in the industry freely.
Blakkman is currently riding high with the recent collaboration Miss You So Much featuring close friend Dexta Daps, and he believes he could have been better off without Mr G’s contract. “I have been signed to him from 2015 March. So it’s one year now and I am not seeing any progress from his side of the coin. The deal was a collaboration with him another party Island Jam Records, and even they feel like nothing is being done to enhance my career,” he said.
Blakkman said, in addition to his dormant management skills, Mr G is reluctant to support projects that he tries to push on his own. “The song with Dexta Daps is doing well and we filmed a video for the song. However, when I invited Mr G to the shoot, he said that he does not want to support the video because it has nothing to do with him. Now tell me, what kinda manager is this? Right now, I can’t even get a show if a nuh Dexta Daps call mi up,” he said.
Anticipating the cliche ungrateful argument often positioned by Jamaican managers when they fallout with artistes, Blakkman begged to differ. “Dem can’t seh mi ungrateful if a better mi want. I have given him numerous chances to do work and he always seh he will do some work, and nothing still nuh happen. Free mi up and let me do my thing,” Blakkman said.
“Mi notice that everybody start tell him things since mi discover him. So mi decide to stop work for three months because none of them were interested in him before I started to invest,” Mr G told THE STAR. “So I wanted to see if within those three months they would enhance his career, and as expected, it boil down to nothing. When I just met Blakkman he was suffering like dog, not even a pair of shoes pon him feet. Mi shop for him like one of my own kids.”
