Edward Nana Poku Osei known in showbiz as Hammer of The Last Two, the ace music producer, who’s known for mentoring some great Ghanaian artistes like Sarkodie, Obrafour, Kwaw Kese, Edem, Tiny, TeePhlow, Worlasi and others have make some revelations in an interview with Bella Mundi at GH One television on January 11, 2017.
According to him, his style of beat production is unique among all his peers and that is why he’s still relevant in the music industry. He says, he has able to stand the threat or competition from the likes of Zapp Mallet, Richie Mensah and many other finest music producers who were doing amazing works in his time. Nonetheless, he sees himself as having no competitor in the current crop of music producers in Ghana. More importantly, he asserted and commended the great works of the CEO of Skillions production popularly known as JaySo for his amazing works.
Also, he tipped TeePhlow as his favorite among his peers on the Sarkodie’s trumpet cypher which included up and coming acts like Strongman, Donzy Chaka, Medikal, Pappy Kojo and Koo Ntakra. Currently, Worlasi is under the mentorship of Hammer after the graduation of TeePhlow some months ago who’s willing to push him to the level no artiste can compete with him.
Again, when Berla Mundi asked Hammer about his view on the willingness of Mark Okraku Mantey threatening to sue Sarkodie over the “Kokooko” tribute song to the late Daasebre Gyamenah, he answered: “I will call Mark Okraku Mantey very soon to ask him his reason, because what Mark intends to do is uncalled for besides, this is just a tribute song Sarkodie did in the rememberance of the late veteran musician”.
Hammer also stressed on the fact that he want to break away from music production in some time to come.
