Ghanaian Reggae/Dancehall artiste, Theophilus Naa Ardey Otoo better known as Epixode has revealed why he parted ways with his former manager Exhibit.
In an interview with Kwame Dadzie on Joy Prime, Epixode revealed that because his manager was in charge of managing his page, it was exploited for commercial purposes without his permission.
“Per what our lawyers wrote, there was a sort of impersonation and it was not good for our brand. Because of the kind of work we do, we actually engage with people so I happened to have businesses with people that I didn’t know about as Epixode, I didn’t think it is good for the brand,” he said.
Explaining further, he said, “because he was handling my social media pages he had businesses in the name of Epixode which the whole team didn’t know about and it was not looking good as time went on so we all had a very good understanding that we needed to move on.”
Despite the terrible situation, Epixode agrees Ezhibit played a positive part in his career.
Epixode announced the termination of their agreement on November 11, 2022 through his lawyers. He said that the team as a whole made the decision, not just him.
Ankoma Mensah & Associates, Epixode’s attorneys, penned the statement in November 2022. Ezhitbit would no longer serve as Epixode’s manager, agent, or representative, nor would he be involved with the company’s brand.
They cautioned the public against doing business with, talking about, or engaging in any activity that would harm or have an impact on the previous manager’s reputation for Epixode.
