‘Nigerians wouldn’t put you ahead of their artistes’ -Sarkodie
Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has expressed his displeasure over how Ghanaians don’t support their own and help their artistes to grow.
Sarkodie accepted the fact that the biggest thing to ever happened to Ghana as far as the music industry is concerned in the past 10 years is the collaboration between Shatta Wale and American songstress, Beyonce.
According to Sarkodie, Shatta Wale’s feature on Beyonce’s ‘The Lion King’ album is huge yet Ghanaians did not give much attention to it as if it is no achievement as he claimed that Ghanaians could have hype the collaboration to make a mark in the international market but it was not so because of the pull him down attitude among Ghanaians.
‘What is bigger than what shattawalegh did with Beyonce? We just want to let that slide? Why? Let’s appreciate the achievements of our artistes’.
‘I had to work 100x harder to get recognized in Nigeria. No matter how hard you work, Nigerians wouldn’t put you ahead of their artistes’.
