Award-winning music producer, Guilty Beatz, has revealed that his hit song “Akwaaba” was a build up for not being accepted and recognized in the industry.
Speaking on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM Tuesday, the “Akwaaba” hit maker said that he felt unnoticed, and that hurt his feelings.
“Every time I produced for an artiste, I was hardly noticed. I can produce a hit song like I did with the Jesse Jags and Wizkid track (Bad Girl), still, nobody knew who I was,” he said.
Guilty also added that there were times artistes would reproduce beats he worked so hard to make for them.
“The most challenging thing was when artistes you have produced songs for, let another producer reproduce everything you have done without your knowledge,” he added.
As a result of this, Guilty said he decided to say away from the big stars in the industry and focus on his friends.
“It was bringing me down so I stayed away from the big stars and started doing beats for some of my friends,” he explained.
Guilty Beatz however stated that producing the “Akwaaba” song was a cry to be recognized.
“when I produced ‘Akwaaba’, I decided to put my name first before everyone else’s. Akwaaba came from my heart; it was a build up for not being accepted, the suffering and being pushed to the background.”
“So now if artistes are coming to me, they know they’re coming to a big producer, they will not take the beat and go to another producer to reproduce,” he added
Guilty Beatz is the brain behind some hit songs such as, “Dabebi” by Mr. Eazi, “Chance” by Mr. Eazi, Chase’s “Tell Me Your Name”, Jesse Jagz and Wizkid’s “Bad Girl,” and Efya’s “Getaway” .
