Ghanaian sound engineer/ beat maker Danny Beats in a Tv interview with Accra based tv station Pan African Tv said that most musicians in Ghana are ungrateful. According to him, when he plays beats for them [Musicians] they use for the big shows, but when they are interviewed, they hardly acknowledge those part of their success story, in this case sound engineers.
He went on to say that music producers do not take much from the musicians so the little they can do in appreciation is the endorsements they would give them [Music Producers] when they are interviewed. “You will play beat for them and they will play all the big shows and get all the big money but they won’t acknowledge you when they go on interviews.” He said.
He made it known during the interview that beat makers in Ghana don’t get royalties so they are mostly resulted to add their signatures to the songs they have produced in other for others to know they made the beat so they can get work. ‘Beat makers don’t get royalties in Ghana and it is very sad. That is why we add our signatures to the song so that we can also be heard”
When asked who the most difficult artiste he’s ever worked with, the beat maker named Guru. He said ´Guru is the most difficult artiste I have worked with, he comes to the studio and decides on which beat to use.” Danny Beats has worked with many musicians, he is signed to Ruff Town Records and was the label mate of the late Ebony.
