Top 7 musicians who have accused Sarkodie of ‘disrespectfully’ ignoring their calls
US-based Ghanaian hiplife/hip-hop musician Dee Moneey is the latest musician to be ignored by rapper Sarkodie.
The former Black Avenue Muzik label star has called out Sarkodie for ignoring his messages on WhatsApp and rather attending to South African rapper Cassper Nyovest.
Dee Moneey now joins a tall list of top local and international musicians who have complained bitterly about how the two-time BET Award-winner ignores business talks.
Below, we share with you seven local and international music stars who have lamented Sarkodie’s call ignoring attitude:
On Thursday, August 19, 2021, Dee Moneey shook Twitter when he boldly quoted Sarkodie’s WhatsApp chat with Cassper Nyovest with a message that suggests that the SarkCess Music label owner has been ignoring his messages.
Sarkodie, who is currently in Nigeria for the “No Pressure” album press tour, shared a WhatsApp screenshot of Cassper speaking Twi. Dee Money, who had Sarkodie on his 2013 hit song “Finish Line,” boldly quoted the tweet: “Ah so your Whatsapp dey work? Cool.”
On February 22, 2021, the Volta Regime Music Group (VRMG) label owner called out his former Last Two label mate on Twitter for failing to appear for the video shoot for his latest song “Favour.”
“Yo @sarkodie I know you feel bad for not showing up for #Favour video,” Edem tweeted. “Team even lose money for that…But I forgive you my g..No hard feelings…Call me when you need me, I go dey for you.”
In March 2018, rapper E.L, in an interview with Giovanni Caleb, disclosed that he made several attempts to reach out to Sarkodie for collaboration but proved futile. He further stated that he cannot point to what is wrong that is preventing Sarkodie from returning his calls as well as text messages. A month later, Sarkodie invited him for the ‘Highest Feast’ and in 2020, Sarkodie jumped on E.L’s song “Revival.”
The MadTime Enterinament label owner in May 2020 told 4Syte TV that Sarkodie has been ignoring his calls and wouldn’t respond to his collaboration requests.
“If I send you a message, you have to respond…it’s not Sark alone it goes to all the other musicians. Today you might be up, tomorrow you don’t know who might be up. When we get somewhere we have to make sure we’re each other’s keeper…you know as Ghanaians,” he revealed.
“But e dey pain me when I message Sark, I send am beat, he no dey… he say o I go respond, I go get back to you and he doesn’t get back. If you won’t do it, you say I can’t do it. That be a reality. If you can’t do it you say o charley as for this beat let’s look for another but if you don’t respond and you don’t get back to me when I see say you’ve read my message?” he quizzed.
In June 2017, the Ivorian music legend told Joy FM that as much as he loves rapper Sarkodie, he feels the rapper has been very disrespectful to him for ignoring his calls. He said they arranged a collaboration but Sarkodie ‘blacklisted’ him after the agreement.
Sarkodie apologized in a tweet: “Awwwww daddy!!!!!!! I’m sooooo sorry!!!!! I still feel bad till date daddy … I do respect you a lot.”
In 2017, the Nigerian afrobeat star, who graced Pulse Ghana’s launch in 2014, claimed that Sarkodie ignored her requests for music collaboration and so she described the rapper as ‘unprofessional’.
In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr FM, she said, “I’ve really tried my best to not go into details but the long and short on why I don’t want to dwell on this is that is super unfair, unprofessional, and unkind for international acts or even artistes to have a dealing with anybody and after agreeing to certain things, you don’t come through at all, I can count 3 different countries and three different venues where my team and I had an agreement with the artistes (Sarkodie) in particular and he didn’t come through.”
Sarkodie apologized on Twitter, and Yemi Alade followed him back.
“Ou just realized queen unfollowed me… SarkNation, tell my sis to follow me back n I’m sorry. No need for explanations it’s 2020 Link up. Always proud of you” Sarkodie tweeted.
The Ghanaian afro-pop legend disclosed in March 2021 that Sarkodie does not reply to her messages again. Sherifa, who appeared on the rapper’s 2012 hit “Sherifa,” told EBN TV that attempts to have him on a remix of her song have not been fruitful.
She said when she sends Sarkodie a message, it could take about two or three months before he replies.
