Radio personality, Da Don has told rapper Obibini to copy Sarkodie’s craft in order to become a household name and be relevant in the mainstream.
Da Don was forced to make this comment after Obibini snubbed Sarkodie in his list of top five rappers in Ghana. Da Don, real name Prince Tsegah thinks Obibini is full of pride and arrogance because he can’t wrap his head around the fact that Sarkodie, despite his achievement is not one of his favourite rappers.
Obibini, who is presently embroiled in a lyrical feud with Amerado caused a stir when he was hosted by ace TV and radio personality Giovani Caleb on TV3 where he dropped a comment that has since sparked a huge debate online.
When he was asked during the tail end of the interview to name his top 5 rappers in Ghana presently, he mentioned M.anifest, Lyrical Joe, Strongman and Black Sherif.
He blatantly left out the name of Sarkodie despite his iconic status in Ghana and Africa. When Giovani Caleb drew his attention to the fact that he has omitted Sarkodie’s name regardless of his opinion being subjective, Obinini offered an interesting reaction.
He said although Sarkodie is good, he won’t make it into his top 5 list of best rappers now. He added that Sarkodie will only make it if he extends the list to the top 10.
At this juncture, Da Don says the only way Obinini can make it in the mainstream is when he copies Sarkodie’s blueprint.
