Popular Ghanaian music producer, Emmanuel Mallet aka Zapp Mallet, has described music as a disease that cannot be cured.
He also thinks music is like a bug.
Zapp made this assertion during an interview on GTV.
According to him, he is addicted to music.
“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 further that his daughter is likewise stuck in 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 the only music producer who has won Ghana Music Awards three times in a row, in 1999, 2000, and 2001.
