Nigerian music producer and song writer, Puffy Tee has described Azonto as the best dance and music form ever to hit the world stage.
He however noted that, like every other dance form, it could fizzle away if another good and exciting dance form comes up, but advised that with the right kind of promotion Azonto would last for a long time.
Touching on the Azonto-Alingo fracas, which has come up as a result of the release of Samini’s Azonto, this is exactly what Puffy Tee said, “the music industry is a vast one so everybody has the opportunity to create a new thing, so if Ghanaians introduce Azonto and P-Square from Nigeria also create Alingo, it`s all in the best interest of the African music industry as a whole”.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Flex Newspaper, the man responsible for Olu Maintain’s Yahooze, VIP’s Away and Becca’s No Away hit tracks, conceded that in as much as Azonto and Alingo are different in name, the dance is very similar.
He advised that even though Ghanaians introduced Azonto, which has now become so popular worldwide, Ghanaians should also accept P Square’s Alingo and make it a success as well.
Puffy Tee is currently in the country working on some songs he is recording as he prepares to launch his career as a music artiste.
He is currently working with Becca, Eazzy and VIP. It`s also quite possible that he may record a hit track with Sarkodie before he returns to Nigeria.
