After being slammed for keeping mute over the seemingly poor living conditions of Ghanaians and somewhat contributing to the hardships as a result of his ‘Nana toaso’ statement during the 2020 general elections, Sarkodie has finally shared his views on social media.
One can recall that the ‘Sarkcess’ label boss was part of some Ghanaian celebrities who went silent during the #FixTheCountry protest.
The Ghanaian rapper was under immense pressure on social media for failing to tackle the government over the poor structures and hardships in the country.
Others say, because Sarkodie somewhat endorsed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during the December elections, he is unable to speak against the NPP government in these difficult times.
But the rapper who appears unable to handle the pressure from Ghanaians has added his voice to the seemingly poor living conditions in the country.
Amidst the hikes in fuel prices that has necessitated commercial drivers to embark on a strike, the Ghanaian rapper has thrown subtle jabs at the government on social media.
It is the case that on December 6, 2021, the Coalition of Commercial Transport Owners announced its intention to embark on a nationwide indefinite strike as part of measures to compel the government to scrap some taxes on fuel to enable reduction at the pumps.
According to the Coalition, the government for the past two weeks has failed to heed their calls for some taxes to be scrapped off hence the decision to embark on the sit-down strike.
But reacting to this development and the generally poor living conditions of Ghanaians, Sarkodie took to Twitter and wrote;
“The people are going through it!!! We always do!!! All we ask for is the right environment to hustle/ be productive.”
However, Ghanaians on social media have reacted to Sarkodie’s tweet.

U see the hardships the citizenry are going through. U’ve turned a deaf ear to it. Assuming it was a certain John Mahama’s era, by this time u drop back to back diss tunes firing. Fast forward, another party is in charge, u mute,rather, u appearing at their funerals layin verses.
