Producing Sarkodie’s Illuminati boosted my social media ratings – Magnom
Magnom, real name Joseph Bulley , is a Ghanaian music producer , whose productions are usually a fusion of other genres with Afro Beats.
Magnom has produced a lot of hit songs like Edem’s ‘Nyedzilo’, Asem’s ‘Wasted’, Sarkodie’s ‘Illuminati,’ and many more.
Speaking in an interview on The Hot Gist hosted by Nealyon on Spyderlee Entertainment TV on Friday, Magnom revealed how producing one of Sarkodie’s hit songs “Illuminati’’ boosted his social media ratings.
He said, ‘Before even the nomination, when the song was big, it was crazy because everybody was complimenting the beat. The first day we released it, I got about thousand followers on twitter. No lie…every second, my mentions were just coming in. I’ve never had mentions like that ever in my life. My mentions were jammed. Before that, I even knew the sound was big. The sound was different. It was a whole different experience,’ he said.
‘Illuminati’ won MTV Africa Music’s Best Hip-Hop Award in 2014. Sarkodie snatched the MTV Africa Music Best Hip-Hop Award from under the noses of other music heavy weights from the continent such as AKA (South Africa), Ice Prince (Nigeria), Khuli Chana (South Africa) and Olamide (Nigeria).
