Veteran Hiplife artiste, Joe Frazier sometime ago in the studios of Kumasi-based Kessben FM blamed sound engineers for the cause of shoddy songs in the system.
According to him in the interview under question, Joe Frazier attributed the growing canker to the abundance of cheap recording studios and sound engineers in Ghana.
He further revealed that because of the stress up and coming artistes encountered during their era, they were very serious and well-focused in composing good music that can reign for long.
But it’s unfortunate that the story is entirely different in our day as voiced my Mark Okraku Mantey. To the best knowledge of Mark, contemporary sound engineers have failed to learn on the job.
“This people who call themselves sound engineers because they have computers are not sound engineers. Engineering is science, physics…if you want to become an engineer you have to study,” he said in an interview on Hitz FM.
He explained that learning new skills will give them a huge advantage in reference to staying relevant for a long time in the prestigious industry.
Mark Okraku Mantey stressed that veteran presenters like Kwame Sefa Kayi and others love playing indigenous Ghanaian songs because of how well the songs were produced by the sound engineers.
