SarkCess Music label signee, Strongman Burner has called legendary sound engineer Edward Nana Poku Osei popularly known as ‘Da Hammer’ a ‘liar’ after Da Hammer claimed that he never approached Strongman for a record label deal.
It was alleged by a fan on Facebook Monday, March 9, that shortly after the maiden edition of the ‘Next Big Thing in GH Hip-hop’ show on GhOne TV, the renowned record producer approached Strongman for a possible record label deal.
According to the fan, Hammer signed Teephlow after Strongman turned down the record label deal because he wanted to complete his tertiary education before he goes becomes a full-time musician.
Hammer who reacted to the claims by the fan said he ‘never contacted Strongman and that he was rather chasing Teephlow even before the reality TV show was over.
“Massa u go dey guard!! stop stirring up wrong info around. Strongman is a fine Artist no doubt.. but I have never made a move on him. I was on Phlow even before the show was over. I even specifically told him I hope he doesn’t win cos praises before your real album is a total distraction. I embraced the first runner-up position and he went back to Sch. Don’t stir shit up man.”
Strongman immediately stepped in and called Hammer a ‘liar’ adding that he should be ‘honest’ with his words, narrating how he[Hammer] first approached him and why the deal failed.
“Da Hammer, with all due respect you called me to your house opposite Modex Filling station and discussed a contract with me. U said we will go and see your lawyer at Circle the next Monday. U asked me “will you still complete the university?” he said.
“And you also asked whether Charterhouse won’t come for me later when I blow. Few months after, I learnt u have signed Phlow and wasn’t bothered because God will make it happen. So if you were on Phlow as u said then u shouldn’t have called the boss. Let’s be honest here. At least you made the move Big man,” he added.
