Legendary music producer, Hammer of the LAst Tow has revealed that he only became a sound engineer by accident. Hammer
The veteran producer who has been the godfather of Obrafour since the nascent stages of the rapper’s career stated that before ‘Pae Mu Ka’ was recorded, he hasn’t steeped in a studio before and had only learnt to produce because he was pushed by his friend Opare, who’s the other half of the ‘Last Two’ to become a producer.
According to Hammer, he wanted to become a film director back in the days but his partner who saw his potential pushed him very hard to become a producer.
He revealed this in an interview with Sammy Flex when he was asked why most of his compilations are not on iTunes. Hammer in a reply revealed that he was like a teacher who came to solve a problem and leaves; a reason why he lost most of his data with the exception of ‘Pae Mu Ka’.
“Let me tell you something about me. I became a producer by mistake. Don’t think Hammer is a crazy genius producer. I became a producer because my partner kept on saying, Hammer the way your mind works around music, you’re a producer.”
“So my partner pushed me to become a producer. He was the person who actually pushed and pushed and pushed.”
“I always felt I was going to leave this and go and do something else so the production thing wasn’t a thing for me.”
“It wasn’t like I was a growing producer who kept records of my works because I wanted to be a film director,” he narrated.
