Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has broken his silence on the perception people have of him about being stingy when it comes to throwing money onto his fans. In Ghana, many celebrities and people in authority are known to give money to their fans or throw money into crowds during public appearances.
However, in an interview with South African based podcast, ‘Podcast and Chill with MACG’, he said that he is not happy being captured on camera giving money to people.
The CEO of Sarkcess Music noted that a video or photo of him giving out money to people reduces the respect he has for them
He further explained that his personality as ‘Michael’ sometimes contradicts his character as (Sarkodie) as a public figure. He stated that the expectations from the public would not dissuade him from staying true to his personality, his standards, and choosing what his heart desires.
He stated emphatically that no one can compel him to give money to his fans, especially when cameras are on him.
Sarkodie noted that regardless of the unprecedented actions of Shattawale, he is a driving force in the Ghanaian music industry. He noted that Shatta Wale is someone who has brought energy into the industry.
