Hammer explained on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, monitored by , that the norm for musicians then was to release a song, wait for about two months and finally release the music video to keep the song in the system, but Shatta Wale never towed that line.
“I admire Shatta Wale a lot. Wale defied all the rules and did something that up till now it’s so strange. When we were coming up we knew marketing wise it’s about releasing a video and wait for a month for another song. He came and broke all those rules with releases. Three to four songs a week and made hits among them,” he said.
