Despite the backlash from Ghanaians for Sarkodie’s sense of ingratitude after gaining widespread support throughout his career which has sustained his supremancy, Mr. Drew is not siding with the populace on the subject matter.
He shared his thoughts on Twitter saying Ghanaians are sometimes compelled to support artistes only when they get rave reviews elsewhere, a situation he described as ‘f*cked mentality.’
He wrote, “We only celebrate our own when that person or party is being applauded by outsiders.. the whole mentality is f*cked.”
uring Sarkodie’s media tour in Nigerian, a radio presenter made an observation that did not sit well with most Ghanaians even though Sarkodie agreed with the assertion. He said, “So, that’s huge for you as Ghanaian artiste to sell out the Apolo.
And it took me, a Nigerian radio presenter, during my research … It’s almost like we don’t hear about this stuff. It’s almost like it’s not happening. So I feel like we recognize how talented you are.
You know what you are doing, especially not just for Ghanaian music, what you are doing for African music as well. I think that our Ghanaian brothers and sisters, it’s almost like they don’t know what they have. They should actually show you so much, love.”
To which Sarkodie nodded in approval and confirmed that these words were the reality on the ground.
