Multiple award-winning Samuel Atuobi Baah, better known by his stage name Sammy Flex, is a Ghanaian broadcaster and manager. He feels that if one gets to know the charismatic and controversial musician Shatta Wale, managing him is not as hard as it may seem.
In a Graphic Showbiz interview, Flex, the hitmaker “Melissa,” refuted assertions that it is challenging to oversee the well-known Ghanaian dancehall performer.
Some believe it would be challenging to manage Shatta Wale because of the way he handled problems with his previous managers, Bulldog and Mr. Logic. However, Sammy Flex refuted such perceptions, adding that the crooner is not difficult to work with when he is understood.
“Managing Shatta Wale is not that difficult if you understand him. It is up to the person managing him; all you need to do is comprehend him and give him the benefit of the doubt. If there is mutual respect, you can work with him for a very long time. His private life is not my business.
“You see, you cannot tell someone like Shatta Wale what to do and what not to do. He understands the game and knows what works for him. I just have to support his dream and give suggestions on anything he tends to do. I have known him for a while now, even before I started working with him and we understand each other,” he said.
The famous broadcaster responded, “I just hope and pray that it does not come to that,” when asked how he would feel if they ever had a falling out and the singer treated him like Bullgod and Mr. Logic, his two former managers. I am the cool type who can handle someone like Shatta Wale. He has had other managers such as Chris Koney, Nana Dope, Willy Wale, Kofi Boat and there was nothing like that.”
“I believe they had issues but due to the respect they had for each other, none of what has been happening occurred. I believe his former managers Bullgod and Mr Logic are both extroverts and with Shatta Wale also being that type, there will always be fireworks,” he added.
