The looming ‘beef’ between BET Awards winning Rapper Sarkodie and prolific Ghanaian Rapper M.anifest seem to be spreading into dangerous territories.
From all indications, it appears Sarkodie famous “Kaba” punchline in his trending ‘diss’ song “Kanta” which directed at M.anifest, is below the belt as the Rapper’s Brother-in-law who is also his lawyer has apologized on his behalf.
Ace broadcaster and lawyer for hiphop act, Sarkodie, Moses Foh Amoaning has apologized to textiles manufacturing company GTP and all Ghanaians for Sarkodie’s use of ‘GTP’ in his #Kanta diss song to rapper M.anifest. Sarkodie in the diss song to Sarkodie said:
Tie! me tɔɔ dross wɔ Kanta, salmon, agushi ne hamper
Terry me serɛ wo a bɔ mɔden a na girl na ɔkɔ ɔn-drop-e ne number
See me I’m far from a rapper
Me no me swag yɛ dapper
Obi bɛ diss-e me a na ɛnyɛ rapper ɔde GTP ntoma pam kaba
Me no me rap yɛ authentic
Jay-Z a ya mix-e with Kendrick
Nansa yi sɛ boys nni swag na sɛ ntaade no nnɔɔso a ɔmo claim-e afro-centric
Ntɔtɔfeefee wanna diss
But according to Sarkodie’s lawyer, Moses Foh Amoaning, his client was a bit carried away because of emotions and that, he was very angry. He again apologised for the ‘Afrocentric’ line.
His lawyer further said Ghanaians have known Sarkodie over the years and they are aware that Sarkodie is a different person. The lawyer also claimed that Sarkodie did not mean to ridicule GTP textiles.
Speaking on Adom FM, Lawer Foh Amoaning said, “I won’t beat about the bush, let me on behalf of the SarkCess family and Sarkodie apologise to GTP and all Ghanaians. When you are rapping and want to respond in a metaphorical manner, that’s one of the things that happen”.
He continued, “We (Ghanaians) have listened to his raps over the years, and we all know that that’s not how he is, he didn’t in any way meant to disrespect the GTP brand. He didn’t mean to condemn the GTP brand at all.
“It’s like he was angry. I apologise to all Ghanaians and again, GTP and Mark Okraku Mantey is going too far,” he added.
