Gospel musician, Yaw Sarpong has described recording songs in years past as difficult.
Sharing his musical journey on the E Vibes show, the ‘Wo Haw Ne Sen’ hit maker says he believes things are much easier today because of the introduction of technology.
“Before, to get someone to record a single track was not that easy. This is because there were no studios around, there was just one in Accra and one in Kumasi so it’s very difficult to record. Today, the story is different. We have a lot of studios in houses so it’s not like before,” he told Becky.
Over 40 years of doing music, producing 26 albums and still counting, the lead singer for the Asomafo band have made waves in the gospel music industry.
His songs have been an inspiration to many in all corners of the country.
