Veteran sound engineer, Appiah Dankwa widely known as Appietus has lamented over the influx of sound engineers in the Ghanaian music industry.
The sound engineer who has worked with some of Ghana’s finest artistes explained that he he is worried about the current crop of music producers in the country.
Speaking to MzGee on ‘The Gist’, the former Vodafone Icons judge said he is concerned about how these sound engineers earn money.
Asked if he was worried the new crop of talents are pushing him out of business, he said: “I’m not worried I’m out of business. I’m worried about the new crop of engineers because I don’t see people queuing at studios because there are options. There are so many them. I’m sure about 2000 music producers and sound engineers,”.
“They’ve become so much and there’s competition. Most of them have just 2 or 3 hit songs. I have over 200 hit songs so I’m worried for them if they are making money”.
The music producer who has made over 200 hit songs added that artistes these days barely pay sound engineers because they are usually offered free beats by new engineers who are desperate to penetrate the industry.
