Branded as Ghana?s youngest sound engineer, creatively known as MixMasta Garzy, Benjamin Nana Kwame Mensah has indicated that even though he is proud to be officially acknowledged as the youngest sound engineer, he feels the need to have a competitor.
According to him, he believes there are quite a number of engineers of his age or even younger than him making good beats but “the challenges they encountering to see the limelight seem to hinder them from putting in more efforts and be ready to learn from already established producers although being recognized in the industry didn?t come on a silver platter.”
He noted that 2009/10 is the brightest year in his life and to date when names of sound engineers are mentioned, his Mix Masta Garzy, is not exempted, “I feel very honored when names of top producers are mentioned and I?m in there, indeed hard work pays” he affirmed.
“It?s not as if I am boasting but I seriously crave for a competitor for the Youngest Producer although I?m still to learning and working with some of the top sound engineers in the country like Hammer of the Last Two, Kaywa, Killbeatz and Possigee, among others”, he self-confessed to Scratch Magazine.
Nominated in the 2012 Gh/UK Afro-beat Award for Youngest Producer in October after producing ?Boom boom tah’ for Mista Silva (UK), MixMasta Garzy envisions of being a nominee in the awaiting Ghana Music Awards and in various music awards beyond.
