Hammer, a Ghanaian music producer, has expressed concern about how Ghana's award schemes have led to the depression of many singers.
In an interview with Adu Kumi on Asempa FM's, Tete-a-tete, Edward Nana Poku Osei, the owner of the Last Two record company, couldn't understand why an artist could be nominated in as many as nine categories without winning any.
The legendary music producer cited the incidents of Okomfour Kwadee and Pappy Kojo, alleging that their inability to win these awards caused them to become depressed.
“This act has a huge potential of breaking an artist’s mental health. The mind is very fragile, if you joke with it, it’s very dangerous. Don’t push these boys to the wall and just walk away from them, it breaks them,” he proposed.
He went on to say that, rather than appreciating artists' work, these programs often result in a mental toll, putting the artist at risk.
