Washington trashes the popular opinion that producing hit songs is what makes a good producer. In his own words; packaging, respect and the extent of influence of the work one produces is what makes him a good producer.
He reveals that since the age of fifteen, he has been creating top bangers that have enabled artistes, promoters, telecom companies and several other people in the music industry to make a living.
Ho goes on to give props to Steve Jean, Tony Houls, Paddy Man, Henry Kiwuwa, Kiwa and Dr. Tee as the producers who deserve respect because of the works they have created over the years.
Those are the people, the relevant people who have created data and content in the industry. That (their work) is what we are feeding on today. What is coming now is just an icing on the cake but inside, there’s something that was made.Producer Washington
