Through him, I met an engineer named Bodo Steiger in Germany. It was Nana Tufur who did his music with sound Engineer Bodo Steiger in Germany first before telling me that the man was an expert, and so introduce me to him, Bodo Steiger, in Germany for his music as well.

When asked how his death would affect the music industry, the experienced musician added: His absence will create many gaps in our music business, because Nana has had a huge impact on the music scene.
