Ghanaian highlife artiste, Nero X has eulogised fellow musician Castro, describing him as a brother who added value to his life.

The ‘Ose’ hitmaker has been compared to Castro in the Ghanaian music circles due to some similarities in their style of music.

Castro went missing almost two years ago on July 6, 2014 during a visit to a beach resort with his friend, Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, for recreation with some other friends.

Speaking exclusively to, the talented musician shared some of his experiences with Castro whom he also described as a motivator.

“Castro added value to me when I stayed with him for about a year and always told me I was good and I can definitely tell you that he taught me a lot.

“Maybe it’s because we are from the same area at Takoradi, speak one language and also I believe I might sound a little bit like him but I have my own style too.”

He noted that the two are slightly distinct with regards to their voices.

“He has always been my mentor and I might sound like him a little bit but then I have my own style.

“I must admit that I have tapped something from him and I have also learnt from him.

“He’s had a lot of influence on me so maybe I may sound like him but I have my own style too.

“Castro was the first person to listen to my ‘Ose’ single and he was to be there when we were shooting the video but that was the same day he went missing.

“I am praying and hoping he comes back soon”.
