I got to know him through a program called “Antirepa” an akan language magazine program on the then GBC SW 1 and 2 around 1980.

“Later when he joined Peace fm, i started recording jingles and voice overs with him. In fact, almost all the voice overs for Happy fm around 2003 which had his voice was recorded by me.
We also did a lot of corporate,company and individual businesses radio and tv commercials especially “Angel ointment fatwi k3k3” which was a commercial success. My condolence to the family. Rest well great one.”
