The organisers said the masterclass would “engage young and creative engineers to learn the construction of fundamental mixing techniques that apply digital audio workstations like Pro Tools, DP and Ableton.”
Additionally, the workshop aims to impart proper production methods at every stage of the song-making process while allowing participants to mix along in real time.
“The government and leaders of our art and creative sector have contributed less to upsurge the music industry which could increase foreign direct investments in the country,” a statement on Possigee’s website(link is external) reads. “It is in this context that Possigee has devoted himself to help augment the sound engineering situation in Ghana by impacting the tacit knowledge and experience acquired in sound engineering to the young people of today.”
Possigee told Music In Africa that fellow producers DDT, Seshi, Fortune Dane and MOG would also facilitate the workshop. In addition, representatives from Sheer Publishing will be present to take participants through topics relating to copyright, royalties and publishing.
Nigerian star Burna Boy has won Best Global Music Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards. His album Twice as Tall won the award over records by Antibalas (FU Chronicles), Bebel Gilberto (Agora), Anoushka Shankar (Love Letters), and Tinariwen (Amadjar). The win marks Burna Boy’s first Grammy Award after being nominated last year.
In November, the Recording Academy announced plans to change the name of Best World Music Album to Best Global Music Album, saying it’s a step toward “a more relevant, modern, and inclusive term.” The statement added: “The change symbolizes a departure from the connotations of colonialism, folk, and ‘non-American’ that the former term embodied while adapting to current listening trends and cultural evolution among the diverse communities it may represent.”

Ghanaian hip-hop/hiplife performer Sarkodie has disclosed why Shatta Wale missed this year’s Rapperholic concert.
Although Shatta Wale performed at Sarkodie’s “Black Love” virtual concert which was held in August this year, he missed the Rapperholic concert.
Held at the Grand Arena, Accra International Conference Centre, on Friday, December 25, the 8th concert was stormed by music fans in and outside Ghana, particularly SarkNatives – the official fan army of the two-time BET Award winner.
The concert saw hundreds of fans of the musician throng the venue to witness another historic moment.
Top stars like Joey B, King Promise, Sista Afia and more made guest appearances, however, Shatta Wale – who resolved his grudge with Sarkodie at “Black Love” virtual concert – was nowhere to be found.
And according to Sarkodie, it was due to performance fee – which he says the controversial dancehall star demanded USD250,000 (equivalent to 1.4million Ghana cedis) when his team reached out to him.
He revealed this during a friendly banter with Shatta Wale on Twitter on Saturday, December 26.
It all started when on-air personality Jay Forley shared a throwback photo with Shatta Wale at the 2017 Rapperholic concert.
