He was appointed specifically to take care of the hiplife and the hiphop music business at that time due to his strong demeanor and Influence over the Music Genre. where he started some few projects to push the agenda.
According to Da hammer, he was very excited on his appointment and wanted to do more to help promote the young artistes but he almost got disappointed and wanted to quit. “As soon as i was appointed i prompted MUSIGA to help me establish an office where i will operate but it didn’t work out, I ended up trotting up and down at MUSIGA day in and day out but all was to no avail and i couldn’t quit because Obour is my friend and wanted to help him govern the Ghana Music Industry with the little help i could but it didn’t work out as planned” He said.
