Singer Shuga has cut ties with longtime manager Donovan Germain and Penthouse Records.
“He was a great manager, he is my father and my foundation, but it is
time to move out and move forward,” Shuga said, adding that she was
“going through with the legalities now” to formalise the split.
The St James-born artiste joined the Penthouse camp shortly after winning the Digicel Rising Stars competition in 2009.
Penthouse is a major force in contemporary dancehall. The label is
responsible for the mainstream success of artistes such as Wayne Wonder
and Buju Banton.
“I wish her all the best in her career, it was great working with
her over these years. I hope she can continue to mature and blossom as
an artiste,” said Germain.
Shuga released her new song, Caribbean People, last week. It is produced by Warieka Productions.
