Since the period of partial lockdown in some parts of Ghana, one thing that dominated the Ghanaian twitter trends was the back and forth between some rappers in the Ghanaian music space.
Sarkodie, Asem, and Ball J went after each other with creative pieces like subzero, lullaby, etc. While most people used it to relief stress, some think Asem has overstretched his with the constant jabs at Sarkodie and his fanbase from then till now.
Recently, following the release of Sarkodie’s new song with M.anifest ‘Brown Paper Bag’, Asem mocked Sarkodie for not making any sense in the song while he hailed M.anifest.
“Manifests verse though. Fire. As for the other guy so so nonfa eiii wey kind matter too be this, why ebey by force? Conscious and social-political rap is not for everyone see how Mdot lash am for ein own track top. Please he should stick to Azonto,” he tweeted.
Sammy Forson who is the former manager of Sarkodie and a broadcaster replied Asem’s tweet saying:
“On the real bro, with all due respect, you dey over-do this thing. The music space is big enough 4 everyone. U have ur legacy as Asem. Sark has built his. We ain’t in normal times & music can heal, encourage & preach change. 2pac, Bob Marley did it. Sark is on it & u can too bro,” the former Sarkodie manager and a broadcaster at Joy FM replied to Asem on Twitter.
Asem also reacted to Sammy Forson’s post “That bulu bulu radio presenter guy too say what? You used to follow me around like a dog. When your girl cheated on you who did you call to cry to? Tok b3l3. You were begging to be my manager but I denied you that privilege and since then you turned into a hater. Follow follow.”
