- Hammer spoke in an interview with Lexis Bill on Joy FM's Drive Time
- He said that staying on at his post did not make sense to him
Edward Nana Poku Osei, popularly known as Hammer, has resigned his post as director of hiplife at MUSIGA. The music producer revealed this in an interview on Joy FM's Drive Time with host Lexis Bill.
The Musicians Union of Ghana has however not yet confirmed Hammer's claim. He was appointed to the position in December 2015 to preside over the management and promotion of hiplife music. It was president Bice Osei Kuffour's (Obour) original initiative.
But speaking on the radio show on Monday afternoon, Hammer said that he was not given the wherewithal to perform. He mentioned that for over two years, his office worked without a budget. MUSIGA, according to Hammer, even failed to give him an actual office from which to operate.
"I was treated like a little boy", Hammer went on. He spoke of his friendship with president of the association but thought that nothing was going to change his situation at MUSIGA.
The producer who is famous for bringing through the likes of Edem, Kwaw Kese and Sarkodie is considered a legend in the industry. He masterminded hit after hit in the late 90s and 2000s. Many still consider him influential in the recent productions from studios and artistes.
Hammer could not hide his disappointment with the happenings at MUSIGA. He lamented that although he was supposed to be the man in charge of a whole brand music, he has not worked much since appointment in 2015.
He said that although he spoke with Obour several times about the problems, nothing in the answers he was given made sense to him.
