6th March 2015, 01:57 AM
Ghanaian songstress Rebecca Acheampong simply known in showbiz circles as Becca has parted ways with her first and longtime manager, Kiki Banson of EKB Records, after working together for almost a decade.

Peacefmonline.com’s investigations have revealed that they have stopped working together silently for some weeks now. According to a source close to the Singer, the last time they were seen working together professionally as artiste and manager, was on December, 20 2014 during the Becca Girl Talk concert.

Even though the real reason for their shocking fall out is not immediately known, the source told Peacefmonline.com that it affected last year’s “Girl Talk” concert. “They didn’t put in as much efforts as expected in the show because they were not really talking to each other”.

According to the source both Becca and Kiki threatened to pull out of the concert hours before event because of the misunderstanding between them and it took people close, to lure them severally before Becca agreed to mount the stage and for Kiki to also direct the show like he always does at the National Theatre on the night of the event.


According to an eye witness back stage, Becca cried and got very emotional after her performance and said “that was the last time she would mount the “Girl Talk” stage” and it's obvious she started the new year without her best friend and manager Kiki Banson.

Kiki confirmed their break up to Peacefmonline.com insisting that there is no bad blood between them and that their separation was based on mutual understanding. “Just like all things in the universe including life itself, it has a natural beginning and a natural end”.

When we probed further for Kiki to reveal the real cause of their split, he still insisted “There is no issue it’s just that we don’t have a management relationship anymore. That is all”.

Kiki also disclosed that they parted ways about 3 months ago and the singer has since been on her own.

Speaking to Richard Agyeman Berko who has been working with Becca and Kiki and now acting as temporal manager for Becca, he said “I have assisted Kiki Banson in official EKB Records assignment for over 4 years. That has always included representing Becca’s career interest both home and abroad whenever Kiki is unavailable. I still do same for Becca. We have grown to be family. If they have confirmed they are no longer working together, then it is unfortunate but with me nothing has changed with what I do for Becca. Whenever duty calls I will represent”.

Aside their professional relationship, Becca and Kiki were reportedly in a secret intimate relationship. A development that made Becca's father disown her publicly for secretly planning to marry none other than her manager Kiki who according to reports divorced his wife just to be able to marry Becca. This generated into a murky media war in 2012 between Becca’s father Mr. Acheampong and Kiki Banson, forcing Kiki to write a very lengthy open letter to Becca’s father.


Kiki and Becca first met in August 2006 at Rockstone’s Office. Reggie Rockstone who saw great potential in Becca who was 22 years at the time, introduced her to Kiki to help manager and shape her talent which was the beginning of a great partnership and the evidence is how big Becca has become today.

Becca and Kiki Banson’s journey started quite rough with her scandalous withdrawal from TV3's Mentor 2 musical competition for being tested for HIV without her knowledge. She subsequently sued the television station with Kiki's backing and this instantly made Becca famous followed by her first classic hit single “U lied to me” featuring Kwabena Kwabena.

She has won countless awards including Ghana Music Awards, 4Syte TV Music Video Awards, Kora Award among others.

All efforts to reach Becca has failed but while she fishes for a new manager, Becca has recorded a new single with Nigerian Rapper Ice Prince which is expected to be released very soon with a music video. She has also taken her first movie role in Yvonne Nelson's new movie “ 'If Tomorrow Never Comes' also expected to released soon.
