Renowned sound engineer and music producer, Appiah Darkwah popularly known as Appietus has heaped praises on veteran Highlife artiste, Daddy Lumba, for inspiring him at the early stages of his career.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Pure FM, the outstanding beatmaker disclosed that it was Lumba’s huge payment for a service he (Appietus) rendered to him that encouraged him to venture into music production.
“Daddy Lumba was the first artiste to give me a substantial amount of money in my career. He came to the studio and we had a discussion, afterwards, he went out and brought a jute bag saying he had brought me drinks.
“I carried the bag home without checking its contents. The following day, my wife asked me if I won’t send the money to the bank so I got confused.”
“Then she told me the bag I brought was filled with cash. You know, when we started it [music], it was not about the money but rather the talent”, he said.
Appietus’ comments come days after the Aben Woha hitmaker has been heavily criticised for allegedly swindling Gospel singer, Great Ampong when they worked together on an album in 2015.
