SarkCess Music underwriter, Strongman has ask for pardon to his manager Sarkodie over remarks he made via web-based networking media about the name.
Preceding the 2018 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), the ‘Infant Girl’ hitmaker tweeted a few remarks that appeared to scrutinize the impact of the Sarkcess Music mark on him getting the designations for the honor .
He made the comments shortly after he received only nomination for the 2018 awards.
He tweeted: “So everyday the #sarkeffect #sarkeffect you guys dey talk no, only one nomination for a whole transformer. This is very bad.”
Many have since been reading meanings into the comments with some descending heavily on the rapper, insisting he takes the tweet off social media.
However, the rapper told MzGee at the just-ended awards that, his tweet was totally misinterpreted.
According to him he “wasn’t necessarily saying that his management is not doing enough.”
He clarified further, saying “I’m directing the arrow towards some people. When I do well, they attribute everything to Sark effect, but the moment something is wrong, they say the artiste is bad.”
According to him, he meant to carry across the message that without hard work, even a reputable brand like SarkCess Music would not have any effect on his career.
He cited his ability to garner one nomination at the VGMA as an indication of his hard work.
Addressing a question on whether or not his management found his comments offensive, he said “I know Sark, and we are that cool so he wouldn’t talk about it that much, and anyway, you know anytime you can call him and tell him you’re sorry. So maybe we did that behind the scene.”
Asked if he apologised to Sarkodie, he said, “yes”.
