Renowned beat producer and song writer Sugartone last Monday on 19th December, 2016 made a shocking revelation that blew the minds of many.
In an interview with AM Pluzz’s Sammy Flex on Pluzz FM, the renowned sound engineer who was promoting his latest reggae dancehall single, Understand, told panelist of the show that his decision to combine active music with sound engineering was based on the fact that many people limit his career in music to only producing beats and it was about time he got out of his shells.
Touching on what motivated him to join dancehall instead of any other genre, Sugartone, known for producing the Moko Hoo beat of Bandana (now Shatta Wale) said his personality and deameanor only depicts that of a dancehall musician. Again, he revealed that he does what majority of the dancehall musicians do and that includes the smoking of cannabis and cracking of cocaine.sugar-tone
The host, shocked by this revelation, asked him if he could point to some musicians that do drugs with him. Not hesitating, Sugartone mentioned the late Daasebre Gyamena. Refusing to mention the second person’s name, the beat producer described him to be a gospel musician and a DJ at a popular radio station in Accra whose name starts with a ‘P’ and the musician’s second name starts with an ‘A’. To him, there are a lot of great industry players on his list but just did not want to mention their names.
Sugartone is known for producing beats like Reggy Zippy’s For Sale, Nana Yaw Kumi’s One Litre, Daasebre Gyamena’s Still I Love You amongst others. The beat producing monster told Sammy Flex that he was willing to put a stop to that behaviour if the public would help push his latest single and give it all the necessary support it deserves.
He further told his fans to expect nothing but good music and that they should not be surprised he now doubles as a musician.
