Michael Blackson, the American-based Ghanaian-Liberian comedy-cum-philantropist, announced his new management company on the award-winning podcast, Drink Champs.
Before introducing Bashir Annan, known as Gambo, as the man of the moment, Michael Blackson spoke about the explosion of Afrobeats across the globe. He noted that Nigeria currently has the most prolific artiste, naming stars like Davido, Burna Boy, Kizz Daniel and Wizkid.
He described the entertainment industry in both countries as “Nigeria is like the New York of music and Ghana is becoming the Dubai of Africa.”
“Afrobeat is taking over the world. In fact, I started my own management company called Michael Balckson Management. And I have one of my first Ghana artists,” Michael Blackson said she he introduced Gambo.
According to Michael Blackson, Ghana has only four top artistes; Shatta Wale, Black Sherif, Stonebwoy and Sarkodie. And so he aims to make the fifth superstar in Ghana with Gambo on his team.
Gambo revealed a new single coming next month with Goya Menor, Cut Soap.
The Michael Blackson Foundation opened its first free private school in January in Agona Nsaba, the hometown of founder Michael Blackson.
The Michael Blackson Management company will be his second project in Ghana.
