Sarkodie denies touting Akufo-Addo

Sarkodie

Rapper Sarkodie has refuted claims that the controversial verse in his latest song featuring Kuame Eugene is an endorsement of Nana Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The award-winning rapper is recorded saying in his ‘Happy Day’, “If I complained about ‘Dumsor’ and I also hit on inflation but today, if there is electricity and my kids, will go to school free, then Nana ‘toaso’ (Nana continue).”

The verse, which had since generated mixed reactions on social media, also had the Presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, quoting Sarkodie’s tweet with “Nice song @sarkodie and @KuamiEugene. Indeed, the battle is still the Lord’s”, with the hashtag #4MoreForNana.

But the ‘Adonai’ hitmaker has responded to the allegations with a rather interesting reply.

He quoted the President’s tweet with “Nana M3nfa bronya ho nre akoko oo lool !! (to wit ‘Don’t misinterpret the song’) when I say aban ( all parties ) Shouts to yourself x JM but if i feel like pointing out the negatives too you know how we do”.

Here’s how social media users have reacted to the revelation.

Meanwhile, featured artiste, Kuame Eugene has denied prior knowledge of the controversial verse. He maintains he hopped on ‘Happy Day’ in oblivion of the ‘endorsement’.

According to him, Sarkodie only sent the first verse of his rap, which apparently does not contain the lines.

“It makes me uncomfortable” he said.
