The last engineer missing musician Theophilus Tagoe aka Castro worked with before his disappearance on the 6th of July, 2014, Appiah Dankwah popularly known as Appietus has faulted the theory that Castro is still underwater and will surface one day.
In a telephone interview on his works and memories of Castro on Hitz FM’s Entertainment This Week with Mzgee, Appietus could only be hopeful.
“Well, I can’t really say anything. Castro is obviously not a fish, if he is under the water he couldn’t have stayed there that long or maybe he has amnesia, he’s lost all his memory and is somewhere, we don’t know so we are yet to know if is alive or he is gone.”
Appietus described Castro’s absence as a big loss to the Ghanaian music fraternity, pointing out that the man also known as de Destroyer was flying high at the time of his disappearance and had featured in all the big songs in the industry at the time.
The sound engineer who released a song by Castro earlier this year, disclosed that he released the song titled ‘Medowo’ despite Castro’s absence because there was a timeline to it.
Although it enjoyed some airplay, Appietus believes the wong would have done better with Castro’s presence.
“Well it did (well but) because of his absence, he had to around to be around to promote it and because he is (was) not, it dwindled. I can’t be doing the promo, you know you have to shoot a video to it and all that and as he is not around at some point, if the artiste is not around at some point, it could drown, so that’s what happened”.
Appietus suggests that dividends of Castro’s collaborations be given to his family in his absence
“I don’t know the deal they (artistes) signed with him but I mean if they should play shows and Castro was on the song, some of the dividend should have gone to the family or something but it depends on what contract they signed. Maybe I will do a song for you, you will do a song for me, like you do and in that case there’s no money or percentage share in the end.”
