Kwame Yogot of ‘Biibi Besi’ fame has controversially said his Ghanaian counterparts M.anifest and Sarkodie are bigger than the ‘almighty’ American rapper Jay Z.
The emerging rapper said this when he was asked to name his top three rappers of all time. He mentioned Sarkodie, M.anifest, before Jay Z in that sequential order. He explained that he put Jay Z at the tail end of his list because he feels the aforementioned are better than him.
The Central Region’s finest rapper made this known in a fresh interview on Zylofon FM with Arnold Mensah Elevanyor on Showbiz Agenda.
In a related development, Sarkodie has dropped a freestyle to express his sentiment about recent happenings which seems to have set him on a collision course with the media and the industry in general.
The rapper went vocal and blunt in a new interview with DJ Semtex on ‘Hip hop, Raised Me’, where he said that traditional radio in Ghana was not ready to play his songs when he started his musical journey.
“Mainstream radio in Ghana wasn’t ready to play any of my records because it didn’t make sense. We were rapping on some beat they didn’t term as commercial,” Sarkodie had said.
However, his posture irked a lot of industry players who came for him for his blatant lie and ungratefulness. He was reminded that it was mainstream media that catapulted him to this height because social media was not even popular with Ghanaians back when he was sprouting.
Perhaps as a form of voicing out his frustration with the foregoing, Sarkodie has returned with this track to express himself artistically.
