M.anifest’s position on opulence and consumerism in the music industry have to be viewed in the context of the latest happenings in the field.
Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jr, acknowledged in showbiz as Shatta Wale, a dance hall artists consistently boast a million dollar house with a swimming pool. He spites his colleagues in the marketplace with this.
Not too long ago when Strongman, music signee of Sarkodie, parted means with his manager, Shatta Wale blamed the going on on poverty.

In other instances, the rivalry in the tunes market has been about who gets paid more for undertaking. The movie under illustrates the frustrations of Livingstone Etse Satekla, also regarded as Stonebwoy, who was responding to accusations that he is paid out a pittance for his performances.
Normally these accusations have been the foundation for animosity amongst fans of these artistes who regulate huge fan bases, specially on social media including Facebook and Twitter.
M.anifest argues that having actions and following in songs “is superior.”
On the other hand, the emphasis for forming these actions should not be about having a spend cheque.
“It is about harnessing people’s electricity but sometimes artists do not realize this,” he stated.
“This is not to say organization is not very good but it is much more than that when you are capturing the souls and minds of persons.”
He believes artists are able of assisting to mould their fans.
M.anifest describes that artists should not request validation in money or what is well-liked.
Artistes “are intended to be the most self-aware, self-actualised folks. They take the highway significantly less travelled, it is challenging, but you have to have a sense of self and convey to people who you are.”
He intends to use his songs to endorse this philosophy of excellence, success and the pursuit of joy.
