“The young producers only want fame so they will call artistes that they have a beat so he should come and sing on it. The song will be a hit and the artiste will be taking 500 million (old cedis) and the producer won’t get anything. The kids have made beat production cheap because they don’t take money” he said.

“Apart from Kill Beatz, Kaywa, Possigee and few others who are making money from it, the rest don’t get anything. They will send beats to Shatta Wale and Sarkodie if they don’t get paid then that’s all. Most artists also like free beats so now I deal with the big boys who are ready to pay”, he added.
