Renowned producer, Willie Roi has added his voice to the issue of managers demanding sexual favors in return for management deals for female musicians.
Roi, on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda gave a nod to the act of having sexual relationships with artistes in exchange for such deals.
He said, ”it is best to date your artistes, especially female musicians, in order to have absolute control over them.”
The seasoned producer further shared his experience in managing female artistes, saying, “i have had four of my artistes getting pregnant because their concentration was torn between music and their boyfriends. It is therefore best to contain their relationship and career in the same field.”
When quizzed as to whether he has had sexual relations with any of his artistes, Roi eagerly affirmed.
He also mentioned that, in exchange for managerial deals, female artistes should be able to give something.
“What do I stand to gain from managing a new artiste, I need to enjoy some benefits”, he added.
Willie Roi, who doubles as the head of the Zylofon Arts Club, an initiative to groom young talents emphasized on the normalcy of the act.
