The never ending argument over who brought the Azonto craze to Ghana lurks on.The twist being the fact that Music producers are now claiming to be the first captains of the ‘Azonto Ship’. Beatmaker Ephraim on the big bite on Xfm claimed to have been the first person to make an Azonto Beat in Ghana.
He was asked about Azonto and he responded ‘I did the first azonto beat in Ghana which started with R2Bees “Azonto” track with Yaw Siki. Azonto actually came from Tema,and got hyped after the release of Rough and Smooth’s “Sex Machine”.
OMG!Ghana can confirm that particular song but cannot out rightly pronounce Ephraim the first Azonto Beatmaker. We will however backdate to confirm the authenticity of his claims….
This makes it a developing story.Until we dig out the truth Ephraim says…….. ‘I did The First Azonto Beat In Ghana.’**
