Ghanaian sound engineer, music producer and artiste, Appiah Dankwah, popularly known as Appietus, has shared his observation about Highlife Legend, Daddy Lumba, upon years of working with him.
Hosted by Doctar Cann on Happy 98.9FM’s Ayekoo After-Drive Show, Appietus commented that Daddy Lumba is someone who is very serious with his music career and works like a hustler when he hits the studio.
“One of the biggest artiste I’ve ever seen who has the zeal and humility when you’re working with him is Daddy Lumba. No matter how big a name this man has made, when he is working with you, he still works like a hustler. Working with him is like working with a young, energetic boy at the studio”, he said.
According to Appietus, Daddy Lumba does not relax until he has gotten the best outcome and that is what makes him the best. “I knew I had to live up to his expectation or go above that and that was my motivation to start producing wild beats”, he confessed.
Appietus also said that, “Those ‘I have the talent’ artistes are very difficult to work with because they think they know it all and are always relaxed. With that, they can never move forward but the artistes who are very eager and zealous about music will do whatever you teach them to do”.
On that note, he mentioned that zeal and patience are the two main things that he looks out for in an artiste who proposes to work with him.
