Team No Sleep manager Jeff Kiwa has said 2022 is not for people with “1990s excitement” and that he will only work with serious artistes.
“You find someone spending all their time plastering blood-red lipsticks and taking photos, how do you sell your music that way?” Kiwa said.
“Seriously, I don’t need lipstick artistes.”
Kiwa, last month, ended his years-long management of Sheebah Karungi and while he did not explicitly indicate he was speaking about her, his comments left little doubt.
“Five years are enough for you to be a brand material and an international artiste but when you’re fixated with small things like red lipstick, you remain just a vixen,” he added.
