Ghana’s respected rap music icon, Sarkodie believes he doesn’t benefit from lyrical “beefs” but his rivals do.
Rapper M.anifest, Asem, and his long time rival and dancehall act, Shatta Wale are artistes the rapper had earlier engaged in a serious industry lyrically fights with.
In an interview on Kumasi based radio station, Pure FM with Hammer Nti, he stated boldly that he doesn’t need any trend from any act in Ghana.
He says he is selective when replying diss songs as not all artistes deserve to be replied.
According to the rapper, no musician can give him followers and trends during a clash.
Though he doesn’t believe that his colleagues can give him trends, he also sees it not nice to battle as a rapper.
He says, ”no disrespect but let’s be honest that who really would get back at Sarkodie and I get back and also win, I will also gain something, followers, trend or anything. I dont’ think anybody can, No disrespect, I respect anybody doing music.”
