I Nearly Resigned 6 Months Working With Shatta Wale – Bulldog

One-time manager of Shatta Wale, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson popularly called Bullgod on entertainment turf has confided he wanted to resign from his position with the Dancehall artiste after his first six months of working with him, arguing that he didn’t understand him then.

In a chat with Ato Kwamina D’Gem, host of the Entertainment Review Show on Takoradi-based Connect FM the bankroller of Bullhaus Entertainment uttered, “I will say yes and no. Yes and no because when it comes to the job itself, you wouldn’t have to worry that much. And what’s the job? The job is to go to the studio and record, go out there and promote your works, get up and go shoot your videos.

“Those things you wouldn’t have a problem but it’s the extra things. I mean I have worked with other acts where you had to coerce them to go to the studio for recordings and other stuff. That’s for me is hectic because we’re here for the job.”

The vociferous artiste manager was answering whether Shatta Wale was the most difficult artiste he has worked with.

Bullgod submitted that Shatta Wale was only too tough to deal with what he termed as the extras, which nearly cost him to quit after barely 6 months of managing the controversial dancehall artist.

“I didn’t understand him then. He says something here, one radio station will call and I’ll try cleaning up what he said, and then the next you hear is another media house calling you because he’s said another thing elsewhere. So by the time you’re done, you didn’t do any job, so it was difficult.”

He proceeded and clarified that maybe the justification for not quitting was because they were yet to commence hitting their targets.

“At Bullhaus (Entertainment), we have a yardstick we measure our performances with, and one of them is, depending on who or the level in which you came to us.

“Within the first year, your name should appear in certain award schemes though we can’t guarantee you a win because of voting and other politics involved. We realized we have not achieved our target so we continued working with him and eventually he got his first award. So that’s how come we stayed on but me and my team wanted to leave within six months.”

Meanwhile, Bulldog manages the art of fast-emerging Ghanaian songster Vanilla.
