And living with them and managing them is not exactly a stroll in the park. This is something Dami Adenuga , hotshot artiste manager , PR expert and the head honcho of Dami Adenuga World has had to learn the hard way.

In a recent interview with Potpourri , the Ijebu Igbo man from Ogun State shared his experience working with some top artists and particularly singled out top actress Tonto Dikeh and the Otunba of street music , Slimcase , as some of those who have been quite delightful to work with.

“I’ve enjoyed working with Tonto Dikeh , D’banj , and Slimcase , but Slimcase is my major artiste. He is disciplined , hardworking , talented , mature , innovative and very passionate about music , ” he said and maintained that not all artists are bad to handle.

“I do take my time to understand their personalities even before the business relationship. Then I switch to the appropriate game with them in correspondence to their brands.

So far , it’s been great and challenging but it’s apparently part of the job dealing with artists and their businesses , ” he added. On the issue of drugs and internet fraud which are fast becoming the forte of some artists , Adenuga said only few engage in them , adding that it was wrong to generalize.

“The truth is , wherever there is good , there’s bad. That’s life. But it’s a very wrong assertion to generalize that all Nigerian artistes are like that.

The music industry is actually self-sustaining if you are a star. There are lots and lots of Nigeria artistes who are legit and making cool money from their craft.

The music business is a good business , ” he offered. He also came in defense of rivalry among artists , saying it could be healthy , depending on how it is channeled. “Rivalry among artists is common virtually all around the world”.
