One of the cons of having one’s spouse as his or her manager is that misunderstandings from work can affect the marriage.
But for Ego Ogaro, having her husband as her manager is actually a blessing.
Although, having an understanding partner makes it easy, she tells Encomium that she doesn’t take her husband for granted.
Some believed if your husband is your manager, you won’t be able to flap your wings?
He was not my manager after I met him. He became my manager after marriage. For me, I am not caged. It is the opposite for me. There has to be trust and understanding. I don’t see myself as a celebrity. I leave that life at the door or car park; I don’t bring it into my home.
As long as you can separate the two and not take advantage that you are free. As a musician I know I need to go out, hangout but there should be a balance. I can’t say I will go out seven times in a week because I am an artiste, we don’t have issues because he knows I can handle things. I can’t say because I am not caged I should now take advantage of it.
What I would say is that he understands the pressure of the job. The fact that I had shows and we came back together and he knows when I am tired and don’t expect me to run to the kitchen. Even if he is not with me at the event, he understands that.
