Musician Bennie Gunter is signed under a label, Talent Africa group headed by Alybhai.
He, however, believes artists can survive without management teams, unlike managers who can't stay in the business without musicians.
Gunter explains that artists can make it out without managers if they are focused. They can single-handedly promote their talents.
"An artist makes the manager because he can stand alone unlike managers who rely on musicians. Many have made it without managers," he said in an interview with a local YouTuber.
Bennie Gunter argues that the manager's role is to only push the artist, but it is up to the musician to be successful.
