The output of a song is not the sole responsibility of the Musician, Do you know how many stupid songs that sounds good to you all because of the beat made by the producer? But do you know that if that Stupid Song wasn’t mixed and mastered by a professional you won’t even value the beauty of the beat, everything will just be a complete mess to you? Mixing and Mastering engineers are the reason why you can play your favorite songs on different devices: Phone, Radio,Laptops,Speakers and you will get a balanced output. Sometimes the Producer of a song is not necessarily the one that mixes and masters a song, that’s why African Giant Burna Boy could drop a song produced by Kel P and have it being mixed and mastered by someone else. The name Mix Monster is a tag you are familiar with, this tag is on almost every Afro Pop Song that’s hitting across the world. Obviously, Mix Monster is a Mix and Mastering engineer that has made more fortune and fame for himself than when he was just producing music under the name Selebobo, Now you remember Selebobo right? The guy that produced that Hit song Johnny for Yemi Alade, he is still producing music as Selebobo but the wonders he is performing as Mix Monster has become a goldmine for him and the multitude of musicians that are trooping to his studio.
