It’s been 20 years since Obrafour launched his first album Pae Mu Ka thus, he is organizing a concert to commemorate the anniversary.
Prior to the concert in November, Obrafour and his team will be holding a couple of events; one of which is a symposium and another will be showcasing of the documentary which includes almost all the big names in the Ghanaian music industry.
Obrafour’s documentary which tells the story of 20 years of his music journey will be premiered at the Silverbird Cinemas on September 27, 2019, but it seems the premiere will be on hold as legendary music producer, Edward Nana Poku Osei known in showbiz as Hammer has reportedly called for the suspension of Obrafour’s ‘Pae Mu Ka’ documentary.
Hammer who produced Obrafour’s ‘Pae Mu Ka’ in 1999 in an interview on Citi FM’s ‘Celebrity Radar’ with Kwame Dadzie noted that he has spotted some inconsistencies in the accounts given by some of the people that featured in the documentary and would not wish that it goes out uncorrected.
“Even the documentary producers have sighted inconsistencies in people’s stories yet they are going ahead anyway. The writer of the book is also reporting inconsistencies in people’s accounts yet they are allowing it to go ahead because of a premiere they booked,” he said.
“I won’t have that because the situation is that this thing is for posterity. It has to be said right, it has to be told right. You can’t take back what comes out. When something is released it is released forever and I won’t sit down and allow some of these things,” he added.
The veteran producer who has been the godfather of Obrafour since the nascent stages of the rapper’s career
stated that Obrafour has given him his consent to put on hold the release of the documentary until the corrections are done.
The management of Obrafour has, however, been tight-lipped about the new development whiles management team member, Edward Owusu has stated that they could not confirm if the said date for the documentary will hold when asked if the premiere would be held on the scheduled date.
However, the producer of the documentary, Nathalie Anang says she has not received any directive from the management to suspend the premiere.
In other news, Sarkodie who could not feature in the initial work has shot his part and will be featured in the final documentary.
