- Hammer has taken a stance with Stonebwoy over the VGMA ban lift
- According to the music producer, the board members of the VGMA behave like tin gods
- Not long ago, Stonebwoy expressed unhappiness over VGMA's press release
Award-winning Ghanaian record producer, Edward Nana Poku Osei, famed as Da'Hammer or Hammer has backed Stonebwoy over VGMA's ban lift press release.
In a recent Facebook post, Hammer bashed the board members of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and claimed they were only acting to their own advantage.
The music producer added that he sided with Stonebwoy over his reaction to the ban being lifted on Shatta Wale and himself.
He added that the VGMA board had come to the sad reality that they cannot stage a successful show without "star boys" referring to Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
Hammer then asked the board to show some respect to the celebrated dancehall stars and "quit being arrogant playing God stunt".
Hammer's post on Facebook read: "Totally agree, makes perfect sense... especially as we all know why the ban was lifted. Why did they have to hear about this with the rest of us? Not even a letter to their outfits before the public announcement... leading to the conclusion that this can only be a stunt for the upcoming event and has nothing to do with any of them. VGMA has been the most successful entity in the history of our music industry. All record labels in our history put together can’t even match up to half of the success you’ve enjoyed. The industry has been generous and good to u for business with great content, so SHOW SOME RESPECT and quit this arrogant playing God stunt. This won’t be tolerated in this industry. If you realize you can’t have a successful show without the Star Boys just admit it and do the right thing by them and Quit moving goal posts as and when u see fit for selfish reasons."
In a related development, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that multiple award-winning Ghanaian dancehall star, Livingstone Etse Satekla famed as Stonebwoy, has reacted to the decision of the VGMA board to lift a ban placed on him.
The Putuu singer took to Twitter to react to the decision of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards board to allow him and Shatta Wale to participate in subsequent VGMAs starting this year.
Stonebwoy's post on social media indicated that he was not too enthused with the choice of words in the press release that announced the lifting of the ban.
