The Ghana music industry has seen music groups fall apart, friendships turn sour and celebrity marriages collapse to the surprise of many.

One other form of split worth focusing on is the artiste-management relationship.

Sherifa Gunu, who is well noted with the hit song ‘Yumyantaaba’ and a Tourism Ambassador, broke up with Reagan Mends in 2012 after working for just a year.

They were arguably one of the best artiste-management pairs in Ghana’s music industry.

They teamed up to release Sherifa’s biggest hit song ‘ Mbrantie’ that got Sherifa numerous nominations across the world.

It’s quite unclear what masterminded the breakup, but after seven(6) years of their separation, can state emphatically that the most successful female Traditional artiste Sherifa Gunu, has reunited with Reagan Mends.
