Multiple award winning sound engineer and a backbone to music from Tema, Possigee has revealed why he stopped beat production.
Born Awal Alhassan, Possigee in an exclusive interview with NY DJ on BTM Afrika revealed he switched into sound engineering at the advise of colleague producer Killbeatz and artist Sarkodie.
According to him, this was because they were all into the same thing at a time when they indeed wanted to push music from Tema to the top.
“I moved into engineering because Killbeatz was recording, producing more of the songs although I was also producing but he said we couldn’t be doing the same thing. He asked me to move into engineering so I work on the songs he produced. Sarkodie told me the same thing and I decided to listen to the advice.”
Possigee is credited for production on King Promises latest album As Promised. He has also worked on several including Ayoo by Shatta Wale.
In 2018, Possigee was awarded the Sound Engineer of the Year at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for his production on Adina’s Too Late.
He won the same award for the second year running in 2018 when a track he engineered, Teephlow’s State of the Art won Best Record at the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
