• After 10 years of working together, deejay Elephant Man and longtime manager Q45 have parted ways on good terms.
Since last week, rumours have been circulating on the Internet that a split might have occurred since Elephant Man is no longer a regular at the Q45 headquarters. Producer/manager Q45 has been influential to Elephant Man's career since his departure from the Scare Dem Crew in 1999.
When THE STAR spoke with Q45 yesterday, he said there is no bad blood between himself and the colourful deejay.
• TIME FOR A CHANGE
Not going into the reasons behind the split, Q45 said, "maybe it's just time for a change, but we're still good." Elephant Man could not be reached for a comment.
According to Q45, he would still be willing to do work with the deejay in the future and would still want Elephant Man to record for him, as well. As for managing other artistes and young talent, Q45 said he's always up to doing music as long as the person has good talent.
Outside of managing Elephant Man, Q45 is also the promoter of the recently started Hennessy Fridays held at 36 Burlington Avenue.
He commented, "the dance has been doing good, it's started to pick up. We just need the people to start coming earlier, 'cause we not going over the curfew time, so it's from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m."
