Castro is not a fish to still be under water – Appietus

On record as the last engineer to

have worked with hiplife artiste

Castro before his disappearance on

July 6, 2014, Appiah Dankwah

popularly known as Appietus is

uncertain about the existence of

the artiste.

He says Castro is not a fish to have

stayed in water for this long.

In a telephone interview on his

works and memories of Castro on

Hitz FM’s Entertainment This Week

with Mzgee, the sound engineer

could only be hopeful.

“Well I can’t really say anything,

Castro is obviously not a fish. If he

is under the water he couldn’t have

stayed there that long or maybe he

has amnesia. He’s lost all his

memory and is somewhere. We

don’t know so we are yet to know if

is alive or he is gone.”

Appietus described Castro’s

absence as a big loss to the

Ghanaian music fraternity,

indicating that Castro was a

reigning artiste who before his

disappearance had featured in all

the big songs in the industry.

He stressed that the vacuum

created by his disappearance is yet

to be filled.

The sound engineer who released a

song by Castro earlier this year,

disclosed that he released Castro’s

song titled ‘Medowo’ even though

the artiste was physically not

present.

Even though the song is doing

quite well on the market and has

received enough airplay, Appietus

said the song would have been

better with Castro’s presence.

“Well it did (well but) because of

his absence, he had to be around

to promote it and because he (was)

not, it dwindled. I can’t be doing

the promo, you know you have to

shoot a video to it and all that and

as he is not around at some point,

if the artiste is not around at some

point, it could drown, so that’s

what happened”.

Appietus suggests that dividends of

Castro’s collaborations be given to

his family in his absence.

“….. I don’t know the deal they

signed with him but I mean if they

should play shows and Castro was

on the song, some of the dividend

should have gone to the family or

something but it depends on what

contract they signed maybe I will

do a song for you, you will do a

song for me, like you do and in that

case there’s no money or

percentage share in the end.”
