Rapper Quata has rubbished claims that he is trying to ride on Sarkodie to get back into the music scene.
In recent weeks, Quata has released two ‘diss’ songs directly addressing Sarkodie, leading to fans descending on him with some accusing him of trying to use Sarkodie to revive his music career.
In an interview with Hit FM’s Dr Pounds on Hitz High Table, Quata denied that assertion and accused Sarkodie of starting the whole ‘beef’ with him.
“If I were the first person who ‘diss’ him (Sarkodie) that means am using him to get back into the scene. But if me I dey my one corner and the person ‘diss’ me first, do you expect me to go and give him a cake saying Sarkodie thank you for dissing me and go home?” he quizzed.
“I am a beast emcee (rapper); I am a battle emcee, so when you come to my door knocking looking for trouble we will have trouble but if you are looking for respect, I will give that respect,” the rapper added.
Quata, born Jacob Kwame Etroo also stated he has no personal qualms with Sarkodie and will say “hi” when they meet because they are friends; it is just a lyrical battle and nothing personal.
He also disclosed that he has worked with Mafikizolo which is yet to come out and confirmed having a song with Jamaican sensation Gully Bop titled ‘Gratefu’l.
Quata also revealed that he is bringing South African group Uhuru to Ghana soon.
