FOUNDER AND Chief Executive Officer of The Last Two Music Group, Edward Nana Poku Osei, known in showbiz as Da’ Hammer, has left his job as Director of Hiplife at the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
He disclosed that he decided to quit the job because his ‘office’ was not resourced.
“My office never had a budget to do anything. I was treated like a little boy,” he said in an interview with Joy FM.
He also recounted that when he was given the appointment, he asked for a place to put his stuff to start work but the leadership was unyielding to his request.
“I’m the go-to guy when it comes to these but I haven’t worked because it didn’t make sense to me,” he noted.
“Obour is my friend; I spoke to him a couple of times…he is my boy. I respect him a lot but nothing was happening,” he further stated.
Also speaking on Hitz FM on Tuesday, the Music Producer clarified that his resignation was verbally communicated to the president of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour, aka Obour, but officially he had tendered in his resignation letter.
Hammer was appointed by MUSIGA president Obour to help manage the hiplife wing of the union.
He is touted as one of the music producers whose works influenced the advent and survival of the hiplife genre in Ghana.
Hammer has produced songs for Ghanaian Hip-Hop and Hiplife artistes such as Obrafour, Tinny, Kwaw Kese, Sarkodie, Ayigbe Edem, and Teephlow.
After many years of cooking beats for musicians, the Last Two boss is now a bread seller.
According to him, even though he has not totally stopped music production, he pays more attention to his bread business than he does to music.
He also told Zylofon FM in an interview on Monday that he partnered the owner of the popular A1 Bread, Godfred Obeng Boateng, to make sure the bread got to Accra.
