Music Producer, Hammer Explains Why He Stopped Making Beats



Ghanaian music producer, Hammer, has explained why he stopped making beats.

Hammer, known in private life as Edward Nana Poku Osei, is one of the celebrated music producers in Ghana.

He disclosed why he stopped producing beats during an interview with Kafui Dey on GTV.


“I was bored. I felt like a prisoner. I was locked up in a room with no windows for fifteen-plus years. The artistes come and go….these boys were out on stage jumping around. When they come back, you are still in that space.

“I sat down for 8 hours playing, making beats, producing, and it got boring at some point. So, I became like an uncaged dog when I got the chance to get out. That’s why you see me on the street,” Hammer revealed.

He also opened up about him gaining weight because of his work.


“My name is ‘Slim The Hammer’ I wasn’t fat; I was an athlete in PRESEC. So, this business of becoming big was the studio.”

Not having plans of coming back now, he said he has a small studio at home.

“I have a small set up at home that my children use, so after the playing around, I want to get the thing back to my fingers. I’m gonna need some help though. It’s been 7 years since I touched equipment.”
