Have you ever wondered why female artistes struggle less than male artistes in the entertainment industry? Well, it’s proved that sometimes female artistes offer more than business deals to their managers in exchange of extra financial support and fame. Watchdog Uganda has listed some of the local artistes rumored to sleep or have slept with their managers.
Lydia Jasmine owes her success to her ex-manager/boyfriend, Producer Bushington. For starters, you can recall how Jasmine went to Coke Studio in 2018, leaving everyone wondering that of all artistes why her! But this was made possible because Jasmine was sleeping with Bushington, who also happens to be one of the official Producers at Coke Studio. Bushington is also responsible for grooming Jasmine’s career from scratch to where she is now. But before breaking up, Bushington claimed that she had ‘grown wings’ and used to come back home late, drunk and wasted, something he couldn’t handle. Currently Jasmine is signed by former B2C manager Andrew Mugerwa ‘Andy Events’.

In 2016 rumors had it that she almost went bare knuckles with ‘NBS Pandona Magazine’ host, Agatha over Justine Bass.
