Sarkodie Admits: ‘I Look Up To Samini’

Several rumours making the rounds in relation to issues that seek to suggest that, the two biggest duds in the Hiplife industry, Samini and Sarkodie are having some level of bad blood.

Meanwhile, Sarkodie, the award winning rapper, known in real life as Michael Kwesi Owusu Addo, has debunked reports of an alleged beef between him and Samini, stating he can never look down on (Samini), the dancehall artiste.

The ‘ U Go Kill Me’ hit singer stressed that he can never have any beef with Samini because he looks up to him as an artiste and that he is also bigger than him.

Samini released his controversial song, Pink Sheet last month – a song that took some artistes in the Ghanaian music industry to the cleaners and called them fake artistes.

After the dancehall artiste mentioned Sarkodie’s name in the song, social media and news were inundated with allegations that there might be some beef between the two.

Samini took to twitter Tuesday to clear the air that: ‘I’m not beefing @sarkodie,’ and that he only ‘asked him to explain to me a line in his song (Borga) in which my name was mentioned.’

Reacting to the alleged rift, Sarkodie told Blakk Rasta on Taxi Driver on Hitz FM that, ‘People think there is a beef between me and Samini, it can never happen because I am never on the same level with him. He is somebody I came to meet.’

Touching on the song, the Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the Year winner stated categorically that, Samini ‘didn’t diss [me and] even if he dissed, I don’t think I can reply [him].’

According to Sarkodie, the Time Bomb hit singer ‘was asking me to come and explain something. As an emcee, you just say whatever you want to say. This is rap: rap is the only way that you can free yourself and say whatever you want to say.’

He, however, stressed that although he mentioned Samini’s name in his Borga song, he does not ‘owe anybody’ an explanation for that. ‘I understand him, it’s a stunt, the same way I did that’s the same way he is doing it now. I respect him.’

Sarkodie acknowledged Samini’s superiority and explained that he does not rate himself above someone he looked up to because he, Sarkodie, has won a Black Entertainment Television (BET) Award. ‘If I have to do that, I have to do [it] with the people I started with – my fellow acts.’
