Appiah Dankwah, popularly known as Appietus in showbiz, has dismissed claims by the creative arts council’s president, Mark Okraku Mantey, that he kicked off the ultra-modern recording studio concept of GHB2.4 m.
He quashed rumors that he described as outmoded the initiative to create an Eastern Region recording studio to serve all Ghanaian musicians.
The music producer and engineer ever refused to say anything like that, but he believes it was wrong for Mark Okraku Mantey to make such a proposal for the government to create only one big studio for the state.
His arguments were that the plan would halt the business of the country’s individual sound engineers, and also one recording studio can not serve musicians with the intended purpose.
“The project will spoil our businesses and we can’t always leave our individual studios to go work in a national studio,” Appietus said on Kasapa FM.
He also indicated that the best idea should have been to invest that money as grants for the country’s music producers and engineers to be more trained.
“It will not work, I’m not interested. They have their own motives because this is what I feel, if they’re really pushing hard for this to happen, somebody wants to chop something somewhere,” he added.
