Here are the real tiny secrets and reasons why we don’t make it in the music industry. An artiste manager said; some managers are just wicked. They won’t tell you the truth until you sign contract. Managers will never tell you these truths and facts until they sign you and you start making money for them.
TRUE LIFE STORY
An artiste manager advised his artiste after his contract ended with him and was about to be freed. After the artiste learned from what his master told him, he became a successful independent, professional and international artiste on his own without a manager.
We will talk about this artiste in the end part of this article. His bio, achievements and advise he gave to upcoming artiste. We all know this artiste. But before that, here are the 10 advises his boss gave him which helped him to become an independent and a popular artiste who has also been able to open a record label where he manages himself and other artistes.
