Popular Ghanaian singer Mzbel believes Castro could have been on the same level as Burna Boy if he were alive.
The 16 years hit-maker explained that Castro exhibited huge international potential and was on his way to making huge global exploits when he was unexpectedly struck by a disaster, ending his shine and dreams.
Speaking during a recent interview on Kingdom FM, Mzbel stated that just like Burna Boy, Castro equally had a strong appeal across the music genres and it was evident in his versatility.
“ I know that Castro was always working. He would try many times on whatever he wanted to do, his energy on stage, his voice and he was unique in his own way. So if he was still alive, Ghanaians would have had our own Burna Boy because he had everything .”
Mzbel also expressed strong admiration for Castro, hailing him as the finest musician she had the privilege of collaborating and working with in her hey days.
Before his sad disappearance in 2014, Castro, whose actual name is Theophilus Tagoe, was a significant figure in Ghana’s music scene. His particular style and ability to mix numerous genres, such as hiplife and Azonto, catapulted him to fame and gained him a devoted following.
His successful songs like “Seihor” and “African Girls” were anthems that crossed borders, establishing him as a household name, particularly for his distinct voice not only in Ghana but even abroad.
