Download Sarkodie- A Man’s World MP3
Track: A Man’s World
When it comes to making a diss track for the haters, Sarkodie is number one. And he is at it again! This time, he is going hard on Mark Okraku-Mantey, Programmes Coordinator for Hitz FM and Kwasi Aboagye, the host of Peace FM entertainment review.
Let me tell you more about what is going on here and what triggered Sarkodie to make this track which is directed at these two radio personalities.
Sarkodie and Kwasi Aboagye
When Sarkodie was about to launch his “Mary” album at the West Hills Mall, he called most of the radio stations in Accra for airtime to talk about the album (and promote it). Peace FM’s Kwasi Aboagye however stopped Sarkodie from promoting his album on his Entertainment Review programme because according to him, Sark does not respond to interviews.
“I’m not forcing Sarkodie to come out to talk. Even Sammy Forson we all know he talks for him, you won’t also get him to speak on the issue. So is it today that you want publicity you jump from one radio station and you want us to hold you up. I won’t open my doors for him.
You try to get something from them and they don’t mind you but today you need publicity because you are releasing an album so we should open our doors for you. When you shut your doors on the media but if you need the help…. that is not how it is supposed to be.”
Of course, I’m sure there may be other issues going on between the two behind the scenes that you and I might not know.
Sarkodie and Okraku-Mantey
Sarkodie and Okraku-Mantey have been beefing since time immemorial and it doesn’t seem to be boiling down either. According to Sammy Forson (Sarkodie’s manager), Okraku-Mantey once described him (Forson) as “Sakordie’s errand boy.”
In the latest development, he also revealed that Sarkodie lied to the public for saying that his “New Guy” video actually costs US$90,000. Okraku-Mantey, who is the former manager of Lord Kenya also added that the song will “die” (soon).
“We interact among ourselves in this industry and I can tell you that the $90,000 video Sarkodie said he shot is not true. I won’t push further but whoever says I’m lying should bring his proof and I’ll also bring mine. It’s as if Sarkodie rushed it because with all the public bashing, the song will die.”
So there you have it! If you hear the names of Okraku-Mantey and Kwasi Aboagye in the song, these issues (as well as others we do not know) may be the reason. But we’re loving it! Afterall, what is entertainment without beefs?
