Chief Executive Officer of Pidgin Music, Panji Anoff wishes that more people would emulate the generous life of the late Mac Tonto.
Speaking on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, the UK-born who touched down in Ghana in 1990 said Mac Tonto was one of the people who welcomed younger ones and taught them the rudiments of music.
Panji while eulogizing Mac Tonto, a founding member of Ghanaian International music group, Osibisa said his association with musicians who were ahead of him paid off as he learnt by being around them.
“I wanted to do or move in a direction that I found inspirational. Look at Mac Tonto and what Osibisa has done and still doing. Mac Tonto was a very generous man. He’s one of the people perhaps who required the least from you in other to teach you. He’s gone but will never be forgotten. I wish more people were like Mac Tonto..,” he told host, KMJ.
Trumpeter, Mac Tonto died on August 16, 2010 at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. He was said to be suffering from stroke.
