Renowned Ghanaian sound engineer, Kin Dee, has disclosed that although he creates every genre of beat, he does not tolerate profanity in lyrics from musicians who want to sing on his beats.
According to him, it does not matter how much a musician pays, he will take out any profane lyric out of any song he does.
“Money is not the only motivation for what I do. If you bring a song with foul language and profanity, I’ll take those lyrics out of the song. None of my songs has any F word in them. I don’t do that,” he told Nana Romeo, host of Ayekoo Ayekoo, the midmorning show on Accra100.5FM on Thursday, 26 October, 2017.
Kin Dee has created beats for hit songs like Yaa Pono’s “Amen”, Guru’s “Obonsam Ani”, Kofi Kinaata’s “Obi Nya Waye” and Wutah’s “Bronya”.
Kin Dee attributes his success in the music industry to hard work and God, and not any smaller deity or juju. According to him, there is no power mightier than God’s.
He said: “There’s no juju anywhere. All things work out for good to them that trust the Lord. Those who choose to use juju in their work have made their choice, but I don’t. I know the God I serve so [my success] it’s purely hard work and God.”
Kin Dee charges differently for a beat depending on the genre. He does highlife, gospel, afrobeat, dancehall, hiplife and reggae.
Kin Dee noted that he will do music for the rest of his life because it is impossible to quit. He wants to work with international RnB singer, Chris Brown, and locally with highlife legend, Kojo Antwi.
