South African musician, Prince Kaybee, has dropped some industry knowledge on his followers, after he was unsuccessful in reaching a potential prodigy. The Project Hope creator has always been one to open up the industry, making this particular issues far more annoying than anything else. His rant for today, 2 October 2020 was targeted at music managers, who have hindered the progress of their clients, as they insist on being he person to handle all of their business which includes interactions with other artists. 

In a lengthy thread Prince Kaybee stated, “There’s an artist I saw sing here on Twitter, I asked for her number to try get in touch, the manager said “Unfortunately” everything goes through him then he will engage her. So let’s say we do things his way, the time we get to studio we’ll be complete strangers. That time I don’t know what kind of person she is, what language she speaks, what kind of vibe she’s comfortable with also on a personal level what inspires her to deliver the best so that we can make fire music. MANAGERS NEED TO STEP BACK A BIT.  When you manage an artist please give them the freedom to engage with other artists, STOP saying things must go through you even when artists want to engage and get to learn from each other as creatives. You are not a musician, go manage deals and bookings.”

Many of his followers agreed with his sentiments, including fellow celebrities, Thuli Phongolo who advised artists to understand that they are the bosses of their managers and not the other way around. She also expressed her fury towards managers who control their artists, indicating that she may have had a similar experience in the past. 

Fellow musician, Donald also added his opinion to the subject matter, calling up artists to take note of the wide words being given by Prince Kaybee. He also explained that there are many artists whose careers are killed before they even begin, due to the poor management of their agents. 

Prince Kaybee made mention that his words of advice were only targeted to those in the music industry, as they are the ones to endure most of the hardship. When a follower enlightened him about the modelling industry, he corrected him by clarifying that musician’s work in the studio for hours on end, whereas models are not under the same amount of pressure.
