More and more artists are embracing the culture of allowing their spouses to be their managers. Is it a case of two heads are better than one?
Below are artistes married or were married to their managers.
Vivianne and Sam West
When the two started working together years ago, they never would end up falling in love with each other.
Sam was Vivianne’s manager even before they got married.
They are still together bringing up their two kids and producing good music.
Gloria Muliro and Eric Omba
The ‘Ndio Yako’ hitmaker was in the past being managed by her ex-husband pastor Eric Omba.
That is before everything went haywire and the couple ended up divorced.
They no longer have a good relationship so chances are she found a new manager.
Mercy Masika and David Muguro
The ‘Mwema ‘ Hitmaker is managed by her husband David.
Speaking in a past interview Mercy praised her husband for being supportive
“I WOULD NOT BE THIS GREAT IF IT WAS NOT FOR MY HUSBAND’S HARD WORK BECAUSE HE DOES A LOT OF THINGS THAT I COULD NOT DO BY MYSELF.
SOMETIMES WE QUARREL BUT YOU HAVE TO BE WISE AND THE SAME WAY YOU RESPECT HIM IN MARRIAGE IS THE SAME WAY YOU SHOULD RESPECT HIM WHEN WORKING TOGETHER,” SHE SAID.
