Record producer, Edward Nana Poku Osei, popularly known as Da’ Hammer has said that his all-time favourite music producer is Killbeatz.
Hammer disclosed this in an interview on Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM.
“Some of the new boys like Fortune Dane, Slimbo, King of Accra are coming out with some new stuffs and I’m feeling it. All-time favourite is Killbeatz. I think he is great,” he said.
Known in real life as Joseph Addison, Killbeatz has produced beats for both local and international acts including Sarkodie, R2bees, Samini, Fuse ODG, Sean Paul, Wizkid, Davido and Wyclef.
“The guys are playing some amazing beats. I’m surprised. There is one person, I’m his biggest fun. His name is Jay So. Nobody in this country comes close to his mind [level of creativity]. He is amazing. I hear the beat and I’m like, ‘are you sure you played it?’ Because it doesn’t sound like what a young boy who stays at Adenta will play. You need to live in New York and even in New York, you would have to pass through School of Recording Arts and stuffs like that,” he said.
Jay So, known in private life as Paul Nuamah Donkor, produced about 70% of Sarkodie’s maiden album, Makye. He also produced Pizza and Burger, M.anifest’s Balotelli among others.
He released his debut solo album, Making Tasha Proud where he produced most of the songs.
