Music producer and singer, Olumide Ogunade, better known as ID Cabasa, has said he does not know how to manage artistes despite knowing everything a manager does.
Cabasa, who had worked with several top artistes, stated this during an Instagram Live chat during the week.
He said, “Is your circle a blessing to you or are they just devouring the small blessings you have? If you are the only one that is smart in your circle, it is either you leave that circle or encourage them to be smart.
“We need a lot of collaborations at this time. There are many things I cannot do as ID Cabasa. So, I make sure I keep collaborators— people that can do the magic I cannot do. As much as I know how to do some things in music, I don’t know how to manage an artiste. Even me, I need a manager. The fact that I know everything a manager does, does not mean I can do it.”
Urging his followers to be ‘omniscient’, the beatmaker said, “I have a doctor, pharmacist and other people I can always call on in my network. I also make sure I’m available whenever they need me. If there is anything you want to do, please be omniscient. Be everywhere at the same time. Being omniscient is a characteristic of God and you are a child of God. You also have the ability to be omniscient.”
