He was taken ill and admitted at the hospital in the Ashanti regional capital on Monday, August 29.
George Forest’s illustrious career spans over three decades and is known to have worked with some of the biggest names in the Ghanaian music industry.
Some big names he has worked with include, Nana Acheampong, Nana Aboagye DaCosta, Akwesi Ampofo Adjei, Obaapa Christy, Ohemaa Mercy, Gifty Osei and Philipa Baafi.
Speaking exclusively to 3news.com an emotional Philipa Baafi described the late George Forest as a sound engineer with a difference.
“George was an extraordinary human, a sound engineer with a difference.
“He is a very serious man with his work and very private and he called his studio ‘Forest’ because when it was time to work, it was just you and him and nobody else”.
According to Philipa, George always wanted the local African element in his music so he gave every song he worked on the highlife rhythm because he never preferred the foreign rhythm in songs he produced.
“He was very particular about the beats to his song that he produced, so what he usually does was to listen to song and tuned to suit the highlife rhythm which I found very fascinating.
“George would always make sure you prayed over every production you bring to him because he believed prayer was a very key element in how far your music can make an impact.
“I will surely miss him and will never forget the man George Forest”.
