Music producer Edward Nana Poku Osei, popularly known as Hammer, has pleaded with educational authorities in Ghana to introduce a new course that will teach school children about Sarkodie’s music, personality and brand.

Hammer’s justification for his demand is that no music act has, in the life of Ghanaian music, been able to occupy the number one spot for over a decade, something Sarkodie has done.

He explained further that Sarkodie as a performer, character and a business “has accomplished what most artistes have failed to do in their careers.

“He has never followed the hype. He doesn’t do what’s in the books but survived. People told him he needed a label and executive plans but he defied all that but survived,” Hammer preached on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.

When asked if Samini couldn’t be put in the same bracket as Sarkodie, especially as he was nominated for the ‘Artiste of the Decade’ award at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Hammer said Sarkodie’s sense of art, innovation and longevity sets him apart from the rest.

“Samini is a great artiste but he hasn’t sustained his number one status till now. What Sark has done hasn’t been done before. He has been relevant from Borga Borga till now and it has never been done. It’s not about accomplishment but sustenance. No one has been number one from inception. Sarkodie has been number one from the beginning till now and it’s a great achievement.

“His influence should be put in the education curriculum. We thought the arts were an alternative for dropouts. Sarkodie made it clear that it’s a business and career you can follow properly,” he said to host Jay Foley.
