Legendary Ghanaian music producer and CEO of the Last Two Music Group, Edward Nana Poku, more commonly known as Hammer, has thrown his weight behind Abraham Ohene-Djan as the best nominee for Deputy Creative Arts Minister.
There has been immense debate and lobbying in the entertainment industry to get someone in the current administration as deputy minister, and so far the name most floated about is that of director Socrate Safo.
But in an interview with GhanaWeb, Hammer threw his weight not behind Safo, but the CEO of Ohenemedia.
“I’m sure a lot of people will agree with me that he [Ohene-Djan] is intelligent, very experienced, he is one of the pioneers of this whole thing, he really understands what we need” he said.
Hammer said Ohene-Djan’s across board experience means he can even work as a substantive minister and not as a deputy.
“I will actually trust him with the ministry itself. I think he can run the ministry proper… From the arts industry, Abraham cuts across. He’s been involved in movies, music, he’s supported this whole generation with his vast knowledge,”
