Seshie Dotse, the producer who worked on Ghanaian artiste, Castro’s latest song has indicated that the track got leaked.

Nearly two years to his mysterious disappearance, Castro’s ‘Kakapɛhit the music scene on a Sunday with many speculating that the artiste was alive but hiding.

But speaking to KMJ on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Dotse said he released the original copy after realising that the one which was leaked by someone who chanced on it, was not fully mixed and mastered. His action, was to protect the brands of Castro and Obrafour who was featured on the song.

Dotse claims one of the guys who used to come to his studio with Castro leaked the song when he chanced on it.

The song actually leaked. There was someone we were working with who leaked it. At a point, it was necessary that we put certain measures in place to let the fans understand that what was actually out there wasn’t a reflection of what we worked on,” he said.

“I realised it had been leaked on 23rd December last year. I realised someone had tagged me on twitter… Later on, I started getting calls that the quality of the song wasn’t so good. I had to let people know that we don’t release substandard music. What leaked was an audio mixed down. I spoke to Castro’s family for the damage control. We are not promoting the song,” Dotse added.

He further stated that he worked with Castro on a number of songs which were not released before his disappearance.

“We have five productions. I had a meeting with his brother and we agreed that none of the songs should come out,” he said.

Theophilus Tagoe as known in private life disappeared with a lady friend, Janet Bandu, on July 6, 2014 during a jet-ski ride at Aqua Safari, a beach resort at Ada in the Greater Accra Region.

Despite a search by Marine Police personnel, local fishermen and some spiritualists who claimed Castro had gone for spiritual consultation with the marine spirit [Maame Water], neither the artiste nor his friend was found.

According to Chief Superintendent Dodzi Hlordzi, the District Commander of Ada, Castro and Janet Bandu cannot be said to be dead until after seven years.

Castro is known for his hit songs, Toffee, Boneshaker, Do the Dance among others.
