Popular singer, Kenny Saint Best, popular known as KSB has weighed in on the discourse of female artistes dating their male managers or record label owners. Examples abound in Kel and Clarence Peters’ romance, Ubi Franklin and Emma Nyra’s romance and the most recent being Tiwa Savage and her estranged husband, Tee Blizz.
Speaking on her comeback after the scandal that arose from her broken marriage, the singer said that most female acts get into trouble when they get themselves involved romantically with their managers or record label bosses.
Speaking on the industry being difficult for a female artiste, as she has to go through different phases like pregnancy, child care, marriage and the likes, the singer commended Tiwa Savage for being able to keep her career going.
The Turn Me Around crooner said that it is difficult for a female act to succeed if she is not in good terms with her male manager.
“Yemi Alade is not having any challenges because her alleged romance (with her manager, Taiye Aliyu) is going fine for now. So everything is fine but once there is a fallout, there might be trouble,” she said

Speaking on Emma Nyra, the songstress opined that the former’s career probably nosedived because she broke up with her former boss, Ubi Franklin, who had the control of her career and her heart as at that time. In her opinion, Emma Nyra starting all over again, is commendable, rather than letting her career die.
“In the case of Emma Nyra and Ubi Franklin; her career nose-dived because they broke up and she became a wreck emotionally. There was no where could push her career, now that she is coming back, she will have to join from the back and start all-over again,” she said.
On talented rapper, Kel, the singer passionately expressed her disappointment, saying that the former should not have relented on the basis of losing her relationship with Clarence Peters.
She affirmed that Kel would have made it big, if she had not relented, because people already acknowledged her talent in and outside the industry.
Kenny Saint Best said, “I am disappointed she (Kel) did not try enough after the ill-fated relationship with Clarence Peters. She showed promise and still has the talent. I understand how inconvenient it is to come up with music when you are emotionally down but people who win are those who pick themselves up and fight again. Kel should have done more than just give up on music’.
“Dating one’s manager as a female artiste is not a plus, rather it often ends disastrously,” she added.
