Ghana Waves App
Obibini has firmly told Sarkodie that he goofed big time for saying he has not been supported enough in Ghana when he was hosted by Nigerians in Lagos during his media tour to promote his No Pressure album.
Recall that during his media tour on one of Nigeria’s top radio stations, Nigerian presenter Osi Suave opined that Ghanaians have not celebrated Sarkodie enough considering his enormous contribution to Ghanaian and African music.
“I think you do not get enough credit as you’re supposed to. I don’t know if it’s the way the Ghanaian music industry is structured or set up. Or generally, people just, you know how maybe when you sing too much to somebody, ‘oh he would always put out fire music and they tend to move on,” said Suave.
“You know from the BET’s to the things you have done especially putting the Ghanaian music industry on the map, I don’t think you get credit enough because when you look at the way Nigerians actually celebrate their own. When there is a David or a Wiz, I look at Ghana, and it’s just ‘its Sarkodie and…”
Interestingly Sarkodie agreed with Suave’s assertion and that is what has angered some people in Ghana because in their opinion, Sarkodie has been well celebrated for the better part of his 10-year music career
His comment has generated so much controversy in Ghana as Ghanaians on social media try to fully grasp his statement because he remains one of the few artistes in Ghana who has been overwhelmingly supported since he burst onto the scene years ago.
Obibini is equally not enthused and in this video, he wondered why Sarkodie is complaining about lack of support when on the contrary, he has that in abundance.
