After Sarkodie won the maiden Best International Flow award at the BET Awards, many celebrities took to social media to congratulate him except the self acclaimed dancehall king, Shatta Wale.
Shatta Wale in a recent interview on Good Evening Ghana has claimed that congratulating Sarkodie for winning an award won’t put money in his pocket, further giving credence to the seeming tensions between their respective camps.
O’BKAY in a celebrity interview with Central Music Awards 2019 Best Presenter Nominee, Amansan Krakye, of Radio Central fame in Cape Coast has downplayed what may be seemed as a rift between Shatta Wale and Sarkodie.
“Oh yes it’s true that most of the celebrities have sent congratulations to Sarkodie. But Shatta Wale doesn’t need to put his congratulatory message on social media to show his solidarity with Sarkodie. Everyone has got their own ways of doing things.
He went further to tone down what people perceive as a growing beef between the two superstars
“Don’t be too excited but some of these things are just for the cameras, behind the scenes they are cool but showbiz sometimes demands certain kind of publicity which keeps the brand alive and relevant”.
When asked by Amansan Krakye what impact Sarkodie featuring him on Biiba Ba song has brought to his music career, O’BKAY said
“Every interview I do, I always make it known how forever grateful I’m to Sarkodie for featuring me on Biiba Ba, it has been a breakthrough for me.
“At that moment i was in a legal tussle with my former record label which almost brought my career to a standstill. Sarkodie was my saviour to have rescued me from those dark moments”.
O’BKAY formerly known as Sir Tino who once participated in MTN Hitmaker contest, was one of the new crop of artistes Sarkodie featured on Biiba Ba Hippop Song. He has recently released a song ‘God Sent’ featuring Twitch.
