Eshun’s Ex-Manager speaks for the first time after torture, abuse allegations

Musician eShun had earlier revealed that her former manager abused her verbally and emotionally.

According to her, the man, Stephen Mensah who is known to the public as her manager was her fiance.

She said while they dated he offered to help her with her music and that they had no contract.

“If there was a contract, I dare him to bring that contract. He should come and show to everyone that this is the contract we signed. I dare him to bring that contract out. There was no contract of any kind. No verbal, no paper nor of conduct. I met him as someone who was in love, dating to build a future. He was my fiance then,” she told Zion Felix in an interview.

She said a year into the relationship, she realised she did not want to be in it anymore adding that Stephen even used a “pastor” on Facebook to continuously send her threatening texts to cow her.

“It got to a point it was so bad I wanted to leave but I was stuck because he will blackmail you, have people call you, sending messages.” and a whole lot.

Well, in reaction to these allegations leveled against his image, the ex Manager, Stephen Mensah in an exclusive interview with Happy 98.9 FM’s DJ Advicer on the ‘Ayekoo After Drive’ responded to accusations leveled against him by the songstress claiming he has denied her access to her Instagram account.

He  explained that the Instagram account of the musician was not hers but a management account. “When I met eShun in 2015, I had to create an account I could handle for her. I did all the work, branded the page and invested $200 per month on her Instagram account alone.”

He added that when eShun was moving out from under his wings, she demanded “I give her access to the instagram page I created to manage her. Upon her request, I also demanded she paid something so I could use to defray some cost I incurred managing her but things didn’t go well.”

According to him  , the musician reported the situation to the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO). “We met with the GHAMRO legal team. At the meeting they wanted to know how much I had invested in her career and eShun herself acknowledged it was in excess of GHC500,000.”

Stephen Mensah noted that GHAMRO wanted to know how much it would cost the songstress and her new management team to get access to her Instagram account. “I did mention an amount to be paid but I was hoping if she couldn’t pay up, she’ll call me to negotiate.”

After the meeting with the legal team of GHAMRO, eShun truly called her former manager but it was not to negotiate but to tell him to go ahead and delete the account which he refused to do so because of the investment he had made.

He acknowledged, “I didn’t take this well and disabled the account for 6 months.” But prior to that, the musician had already created a new Instagram account.

Steve Mensah Expressed his disappointment  and concluded that the two find themselves in this situation because their discussion didn’t end well.
