Reggae/dancehall legend, Samini Dagaati, caused a stir on social media after he made some complaints and allegations against veteran rapper, Sarkodie.
The My Own hitmaker on the evening of Monday, 23rd January 2023 made some revelations that suggested the relationship between him and Sarkodie had gone bad and that Sarkodie does respond to his messages.
The reggae/dancehall musician was asked by a fan on Twitter when he was going to collaborate again with Sarkodie on a project.
The question seemed to have triggered some pent-up emotions in Samini as he went on a long rant and made some interesting revelations.
Samini pointed out numerous occasions where he approached Sarkodie for a feature but got ignored by the rapper. He lamented that he did his verse on Sarkodie’s smash hit, Love Rocks, for free, but the rapper was hesitant to return the favour.
He added that he was never going to approach Sarkodie for a verse again, and said he was not going to do one for him either if he ever needed it.
Furthermore, he subtly threw shade at Sarkodie by saying that, unlike the rapper, he did not need verses from other musicians to stay relevant.
The controversy sparked reactions from Twitter users, as some sided with Samini and others felt he was looking for attention.
Below are some responses from Ghanaians on Twitter:
