“My advice to the young and talented musicians is to give respect to everybody including the senior artistes. I started music somewhere in 1974 and I’m still active because of the respect I still give to all my senior musicians. They should always give respect to other colleague musicians and write good lyrics as well.

“If they write songs and want some of us to critic and help them out, we will. When I write my music, I take it to Nana Ampadu or Obouba Adofo to listen to it first before it comes out or any of the senior musicians,” he said.

He concluded by saying, “Our doors are always opened to you and we love you as well so feel free and come to us.”
