Hammer Credits Sarkodie and Joey B As Catalysts For His Comeback, Detailing How They Played Pivotal Roles In Reigniting His Career

In 2021, Hammer, also known as Edward Nana Poku Osei, recounted a frightening battle with COVID-19 that nearly took his life.

The producer reveals that his near-death encounter compelled him to abandon various habits, such as smoking, and even consider relinquishing his already accomplished career. In a recent interview, Hammer shared insights into his return to the music scene, a domain he had been absent from for almost two decades.

Hammer expressed that he thoroughly relished his career spanning from 1999 to 2015 and initially had no intentions of making a comeback to music.

Furthermore, his remarkable success with the A1 Bread Company continued to steer him away from music. “I bought three cars in the span of one year,” Hammer revealed in his recent interview with 3 Music TV.

The iconic producer shared that it was Sarkodie, one of his protégés from his Last Two collective, who inspired him to reassess his position.

Hammer mentioned that Sarkodie expressed dissatisfaction with the producer stepping back from the music scene, especially when the industry was beginning to thrive due to digital disruption.

The mastermind behind some of Ghana’s most beloved hiplife classics also mentioned Joey B in his comeback narrative. He recounted Joey B reaching out to him, expressing concern over his absence on digital platforms. This prompted him to seek advice from Worlasi, who then connected him with a distributor.

The producer is now back in the studio, working on a new compilation album and directing Red Eye’s upcoming project.
