Appietus nearly discouraged me from doing music – Rapper Reggie Dan
Ghanaian fast rising musician Regginald Daniel Afriyie popularly know as Reggie Dan has disclosed on Nkran Kwanso on Accra FM that he nearly stopped doing music because of Sound Engineer Appietus.
Speaking to Docta Kay, the rapper said although he was very determined to do music but he was nearly discouraged by popularly sound Engineer Appietus.
Reggie Dan said growing up in dansoman where Appietus was apparently the most popular Engineer there made him want to record his first single with appietus, but i felt heart broken the first day I went to his to studio to ask how much it will cost me to record a track in his studio and he told me 2500 Ghana cedis and that is for a full album. He added .
When asked how he felt after Appietus told him to pay 2500 cedis for an album, the musician said he felt very bad and had lots if thoughts in his mind because about 10years ago 2500 cedis was a huge sum of cash and didn’t know how he could raise that amount of money.
I got hurt with what he said because i was very young and didn’t know much about life and cried the whole day but lied to my parents when they asked my why I was crying. He said.
Appeitus is a very good sound engineer and even though I was hurt because of what he told me but later did I know that it was also to help me work harder and make him proud someday when he hears the story.
