Legendary Hip Hop rapper Ernest Nsimbi popularly known as GNL Zamba accuses the managers of artists for the increased drug addiction given the fact that they benefit a lot when their artists are not sobber as far as stealing from them and manipulating them in one way or another.
Though the 'Koyi koyi' singer concedes that drugs are a therapy for most artists to help them relax and also think that fast while in studio, GNL alleges that most artists-managers aren't honest to their clients no wonder it works for them to see musicians doing drugs so as to manipulate them in one way or another.
"It works for the manager who is not honest when the musician is sober. It is easier for managers to steal money from musicians because artists won't be able to look at the books, the taxes being paid, has the money been banked or see a receipt that is missing," Stated GNL Zamba during an interview with a local TV station.
