Music of Saturday, 18 August 2012
The music industry in Ghana has seen so much talent in the field of producing and sound engineering, some had their season during which they ruled the airwaves and conquered Ghana but they eventually faded away.
Appietus belongs to the class of producers who have lasted long in the industry and survived all the changes in trends till now. He has relied on his ability to blend with the trend whilst keeping his sound distinct.
With hits and award winning songs for almost everyone from Okyeame Kwame and 4×4, to Obrafour and Five 5, he has also become the go-to-guy for his adlibs which ironically nobody understands (not even him). Ghanaians seem to have fallen in love with these adlibs and musicians from all angles are calling on him to help them make a hit.
He popularized the Azonto groove by sampling South African Kwaito and now the whole nation has been whipped into frenzy by it.
Currently, he has hits like ‘Azonto Fiesta’ by Sarkodie, ‘Move Back’ by Five 5, ‘Faithful’ by Okyeame Kwame etc. We wish him the best in all his endeavors and hope he will continue to churn out the beautiful music that we are accustomed to hearing from him.
