This is not the first time the rapper has been disrespected by organizers of the event One Africa Music Africa fest. Seems Shatta Wale was Right. Sarkodie Disrespected. Nigeria music over Ghanaian music… Sarkodie was supposed to perform before Wizkid. The African Best Rapper who is yet to release an official statement had the team issuing out this
“As always, Sarkodie and DJ were present at the venue on time and were to told would perform after Tiwa Savage only to find Wizkid jump unto the stage during Tiwa Savage’s performance even without being announced. The organizers then informed Sarkodie he would perform after Tekno only to find Davido repeat Wizkid’s act. Mounting the stage even without being called. Banky W, the host announced Sarkodie as the next performer while DJ Mensah set up only to be told again that Davido was coming up next. Banky W even seemed surprised. Sarkodie then felt the turn of events were disrespectful and frustrating”.
After series of performances from Nigerian Artists. Sarkodie was not still the next to perform. Then came Davido’s performance. This was not good for teamsark. As such, Sarkodie took to Twitter to announce that he was no longer performing and hoped he could make it next time. He ended by apologizing to his fans.
Sorry to fans in Dubai but I’m not performing… hopefully I make it next time … 🙏🏾

TeamSark responded “Sarkodie was willing to perform irrespective of the performance time cut but the breakdown in the running order was a major problem. I mean how do you disrespect an artist like Sarkodie that way. Do you know this is not the first time. This happens to be the third time he has been disrespected in this same manner by the Nigerian artists. So many things including scuffle between artists at the backstage but he decided to stay out of that and not perform”
Then Shatta Wale Replied to Him.
