Award-winning Rapper Sarkodie has sounds warning to fellow colleague artists who in the past few months has throw him for not picking and returning to their calls including Samini.
Since the release of the song on January 20, the rapper’s verse on Bob Marley’s Stir It Up song has been met with varied reactions. While his fans have praised him for his delivery, some industry players have downplayed his performance on the song.
Shatta Wale had in an interview on Luv FM, not only mock the project, but also downplayed the significance of Sarkodie being featured on the Bob Marley classic.
“I don’t think it should be a problem. As we hear, Sarkodie has featured Bob Marley, it’s so beautiful, at least we have someone who has featured a ghost, we should praise him,’’ Shatta said in the interview”.
Blakk Rasta also blamed the family of Bob Marley for disrespecting the legacy of Bob Marley by featuring Sarkodie who was not spiritual enough to be on the song.
‘‘If Bob Marley was alive, do you think that he will be featuring Sarkodie. They are in two different worlds, I do not blame Sarkodie, Sarkodie is not the one I am talking to, I am talking to the disgraceful Bob Marley family, disgracefully highland records for of a great spiritual king. It is mist non sensical and I’m hurt’’, Blakk Rasta also stated in an interview.
In the middle of it all, Sarkodie was also accused by Samini of disrespecting him and failing to respond to his call for features.
Samini’s uproar brought about a chain of revelations from some artistes including Black, Sister Afia, and others who came out to show receipts of how Sarkodie delivered quickly on their request for verses.
While Sarkodie has kept mute on all these controversies, the “No Pressure” rapper has posted a video (meme) on his Twitter page that suggests his intentions about all that has happened.
