English singer, songwriter, record producer, musician, actor, and businessman, Edward Christopher Sheeran, also known as Ed Sheeran has revealed how his manager stopped him from moving to stay in Ghana.
According to the ‘Bad Habits’ hitmaker, he had plans of emigrating to the West African country with his wife Cherry Seaborn – with whom he has 10-month-old daughter Lyra Antarctica – but the intervention of his manager Stuart Camp stopped him.
Speaking during an appearance on the ‘Normal Not Normal’ podcast, Ed said; “Musical stuff I never get talked down from. Stu, what’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve talked me down from recently?”
And Stuart responded: “There’s too many! ‘I’m gonna buy an island here’. Or ‘I’ve had enough, me and Cherry are emigrating to Ghana for three years.’ Stuff like that. You’ll get the odd thing like that and I go, ‘Yes dear.’ You sort of let the idea percolate and it’ll kill itself eventually.”
When Ed got tired of the idea of moving to Ghana, he started looking for places closer to home and eventually found an uninhabited island off the coast of Ireland.
“I sent Stuart this uninhabited island in Ireland that you’re not even allowed to build a house on and I was like, ‘I think this is a good idea! I think I’m going to buy this and move here!’ ”
