Veteran Ghanaian music producer, Zapp Mallet, has described music as a bug.
He said in an interview on GTV that music is also like a disease which has no cure.
Zapp, known in private life as Emmanuel Mallet, explained that music has a strong addiction.
Personally, he indicated that he is stuck to music.
According to him, one cannot do away with this bug, not even a different work with a higher salary.
“I’m used to music now. I’ve been doing it for over 30 years and I’m stuck with it now. Music is like a bug. When it bites you, you can’t free yourself. There’s no cure. It’s like a disease, not a terminal disease, but a kind of loving disease. And when it bites you, you can go and work at the bank, and you won’t be happy. You can get a good salary, but you won’t be happy,” he stated.
He disclosed that his daughter is also stuck to film production.
“My first daughter, the film ‘bug’ has bitten her. And I know how she feels. She doesn’t want to hear anything apart from film.”
Zapp Mallet is known to be the only music producer who has won Ghana Music Awards three times in a row, in 1999, 2000, and 2001.
