In an interview with Kumasi-based Pure FM, Appietus claims that Daddy Lumba was the first artist to pay him a significant sum of money after years of producing beats for musicians.
He claims that when he first began his profession, his main goal was to market himself around the globe and make the world aware of his natural talents.
Appietus claimed that Daddy Lumba gave him an insight into how profitable the business might be by rewarding the labor of his hands with enormous sums of money for a project they completed together.
The first performer to offer me a sizable sum of money in my career was Daddy Lumba. After our conversation in the studio, he walked outside and returned with a tray, claiming to have brought me beverages.
“I took the bag home without looking inside.” I became perplexed when my wife inquired the next day if I would transfer the money to the bank. She then informed me that the bag I had with me contained money. “You know, when we first started, it was more about the skill than the cash,” he stated.
