Mathew Knowles, who is the father and former manager of pop sensation Beyonce’s, will be teaching a class on how to be Beyonce.
Mathew, who is the current manager of Destiny’s Child, is said to be the man who created and developed the fierce girl group and made them rise to the upper stratosphere of superstardom.
The ‘boot camp’, which is scheduled to be on October 24 at the Hobby Center in Houston, Texas will be called “The Entertainment Industry: How Do I Get In?”
Here’s what the $199 (Ksh 19,900) course for “aspiring singers, dancers, composers, writers, producers, managers, publicists, attorneys, business managers and all other entertainment industry hopefuls” will probably look like:
09:00 a.m. How to spell “Beyoncé.”
09:15 a.m. Receive cease-and-desist letter preventing Mathew from mentioning the name “Beyoncé” during the course.
09:30 a.m. Selling of water bottles and snacks, as “no outside food or beverage will be permitted.”
10:00 a.m. Dating tips on finding a successful, motivated woman to give birth to a future superstar whose career you can manage.
11:30 a.m. Farrah Franklin guest lecture, with excerpts from her upcoming Beyoncé “tell-all.”
12:00 p.m. Break for lunch.
01:00 p.m. Keri Hilson case study on how to create fans that will attack anyone who makes a disparaging comment about you.
02:30 p.m. Looking at photos of Blue Ivy and weeping.
03:00 p.m. Tina Knowles Skype in (she won’t be in attendance) to laugh.
04:00 p.m. Naptime.
05:00 p.m. Auditions for a new version of Destiny’s Child, with special guest Rita Ora.
07:00 p.m. Screening of the 1992 ABC mini-series The Jacksons: An American Dream.
You can buy a VIP pass for an extra $100 (Ksh 10,000), which includes private lunch with Mathew and a photo.
It has not been said whether Beyoncé will attend especially because their father-daughter relationship has been strained for a very long time, following Beyoncé firing him as her manager and after, him selling her memorabilia.
Several of her friends, however, have been said to attend, allegedly.
The class is not the only workshop Knowles has taught.
Aside from teaching a class at Texas Southern University called “The Recording Industry,” Knowles actually offered this same workshop around September last year, and a correspondent from MTV was there.
Apparently, so was Houston rap stalwart Bun B.
It’s worth noting that Knowles’ latest book is called The DNA of Achievers.
Knowles in a recent interview talking about the workshop on learning how to be Beyoncé said, “We will not have a textbook, because I am the book.”
