Sarkodie has admitted that Beyoncé’s Lion King album, which featured Shatta Wale, was Ghana’s biggest musical achievement in the recent decade.
The feature, according to Sarkodie, was so significant that it might have exposed a lot of musicians to the international market, but Ghanaians brushed it under the rug.
Ghanaians’ “pull him down” attitude, according to King Sark, has been destroying the entertainment sector for far too long.
He recounted stories of how Nigerians prefer to promote and portray only positive images of their performers in the media while criticizing them in private, whilst Ghanaians do the opposite.
Ghanaians could have simply applauded Shatta Wale and promoted the project, but instead they found flaws in the song and discussed it on social and traditional media, according to Sarkodie.
Sarkodie used himself as an example, claiming that he had lost important connections as a result of the bad topics that social media users choose to debate about his collaborations with international musicians.
He used the chance to respond to a tweet sent by a fan after Wale, an American rapper, appeared on his No Pressure album.
The tweep offended Sarkodie by writing that he was the one who gave Wale a career, and Sark felt awful when he saw the tweet and had no choice but to call that fan to order, according to Sark.
In a recent interview on Hitz Fm, the multiple award-winning rapper, who has begun a radio tour in support of his No Pressure album, made this comment.
