BET Award-winning Ghanaian artiste, Sarkodie has lectured his critics on how nonsense he feels it is for people to criticize for promoting a Nigerian artiste’s song.
Nigerians gave Ghanaian artistes who were billed to perform at the Zylofon Invasion Concert in Nigeria a cold reception. The clappers who were paid to cheer artistes up failed to do so when artistes lik Joyce Blessing, Obibini, Kumi Guitar, Stonebwoy and to an extent, Shatta Wale came on stage to perform to perform.
After the unfortunate incident, Ghanaians have been yelling for ‘support your own’ and the 80% local content agenda.
During the uproar, Sarkodie posted a short clip of Mr P of PSquare fame which Ghanaians and his followers on Instagram trolled and criticized him for. Some users accused him of failing to promote Ghanaian songs but rather hailing Nigerians.

However, the rapper hasn’t shown any sign of remorse for his actions.
Sarkodie in his response on Daybreak Hitz told Andy Dosty that he did no wrong.
“I understand how sensitive they are when it comes to these issues. On that issue, it is a bit funny. I will not be mad at it. I understand where they are coming from. It makes you attack what you are not supposed to attack, if I am wrong I will come out to apologize. So he pms you like bro I have a new song so help me out, you expect me to say no because Ghana and Nigeria we are at war? I mean, it doesn’t really make sense!”, he explained.
Sarkodie returned a favour, as he also stated in the interview that he never invited Mr P over for his marriage ceremony, but the Nigerian artiste did it out of love. Hence we think this also pushed Sarkodie to promote the song regardless of what Ghanaians were going to say about him.
