DEAL WITH THIS ISSUE ELSE IT WILL COME BACK TO HURT YOU – Hammer Tells Black Sherif

Da’ Hammer, the last two, has advised Black Sherif to take the suit filed against him seriously or it will come back against him.

This follows after Black Sherif’s former financier, Shadrach Agyei Owusu accused the ‘Kwaku The Traveller’ hitmaker of abandoning him to sign a record deal with, Empire Distribution, without his consent.

Black Sherif was said to have inked a distribution agreement with Empire Music without his investor’s permission, despite the fact that he allegedly had a business management contract with him.

According to the deal, he must conduct all of his actions through the investor who came on board to assist the performer.

In a writ of summons dated April 11, 2022, Black Sherif, the plaintiff, seeks to be barred from performing at gatherings without his agreement.

Well, according to the celebrated record producer, the situation should not have escalated to this point, and he believes that the Black Sherif should handle all the happenings that have led to this.

Hammer, who has groomed some of Ghana’s top hip-hop artists including Obrafour, Tinny, Kwaw Kese, o, and Ayigbe Edem, feels Black Sherif has to face these issues once and for all in order to focus on his potential career.

Sharing his comment, he wrote;

“Doesn’t have to come to that point. You can’t sweep anything under the carpet. I believe he needs to do the needful and deal with this situation once and for all. Or else it’ll always come back.”

BLACK SHERIF’S COURT CASE COULD BE GOOD FOR GHANA’S MUSIC INDUSTRY – 3Music Awards CEO

CEO of 3Music Awards, Sadiq Abdulai Abu, ha shared his honest opinion about the Black Sherif being dragged to court by his former manager, Shadrack Agyei Owusu.

The 3 Music CEO in a submission today, Tuesday, April 12 on Hitz FM posited that he will like the case against Black Sherif to be solved out of court but such issues, which are common on Ghana’s music scene, according to him could be good for Ghana’s music industry.

According to him, all the issues could be clarified if the parties involved choose to battle it out in court and it is a step in the right for Ghana music.

“I think that both parties are in a better place to build this out of court settling but regardless if both parties decide to go the whole length, it would be a good case to define the industry,” he said in an interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.

For now, I’m not so sure what may have compelled Snap (former financier of Black Sherif) to resort to the court.”

He, however, pointed out that Black Sherif’s current situation could be beneficial or detrimental based on how he responds to it.

“The career of the young guy is very important and this could affect him. It could also create bad blood as well; affect the goodwill that he is enjoying from the public. But then again, on the other side, the publicity could affect his newfound relevance in the music industry.

“Depending on how you look at this: it could be a good and a bad thing as well. But generally, the way these things work is that it often inures to the benefit of the talent, because he gets the publicity and if he is able to react very well in terms of how he responds and the way he conducts himself, he may actually come out winning.”
