Contrary to a claim by rapper Kontihene that Kwabena Kwabena is a drug addict, legendary music producer Hammer says the highlife musician he knows is too focused to be a drug addict.
“I worked with him for a long time, he was the main voice behind most of my hits,” Hammer recalled. “I know him and can tell you for a fact that he is not a drug addict…”
Speaking to MzGee on 3FM’s Showbiz927, Hammer argued that “Drug addicts speak for themselves. If you are a drug addict, nobody needs to tell somebody that you are a drug addict. It will show. Drug addicts are not focused, they don’t do albums, they go months without bathing. Just look at him. He is focused.”
Hammer further mentioned that the friction between Kwabena Kwabena and Kontihene might have influenced the latter’s decision to level allegations against the former – an action that has received a rebuttal from the singer. He expressed optimism the two will settle their differences.
“When people fall off, they say nasty things about each other,” Hammer asserted. “At a point in time, they were very great friends. I have a policy. When people fight, I don’t take sides because when they get together, they will alienate you. I believe they have too much history not to get back together. They are just angry with each other for whatever reason, I do not know. Taking part in the noise makes you a third person”.
A few weeks ago, Kontihene dared Kwabena Kwabena to go for a test to prove he is not a drug addict. Kwabena Kwabena in response threatened to drag Kontihene to the law court over what he termed as false claims.
