Rapper Sarkodie has denied allegations that this is not the right time to release his song “Sub Zero”.
The award-winning musician noted that activities in the creative field cannot be stopped just because there is a pandemic.
Anadwo hit singer responded to dancehall singer Shata Wale, who said she was deeply disappointed by the release of the song Sarkodie at a time when the world is battling the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19).
Shatta Wale responded to the song in an interview with TVz New Day on MzGee on Tuesday, saying he was disappointed.
“Sarkodie talks about beef and the industry is happy. I was disappointed, I thought you would tell me that he gave things to some people in need, but if Sarkodie really kicked me out at that time in our lives, when people were dying, when people needed help,” she says. .
Shortly after Shata Wale made the comment, the rapper replied, “Berma gyae gyimie no…you feel like I’ll have time to shoot you at that…emotional singer.”
In an exclusive interview with MzGee on TV3 New Day from New Jersey in the United States, where it is currently closed, Sarkodie further commented on the matter, saying on Wednesday there was nothing wrong with the timing of its release.
“It’s about how you want to see it because I see it differently. … It’s music and in this COVID-19 everyone has to do their job. We can advocate for the information that people need to hear, which is really needed… but as artists we still don’t have to stop working… so like Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, whoever makes music doesn’t stop, because then they really need it.”
He firmly believes this is the time they should bring fun back into society. Sarkodie noted one case in which a hospital invited a musician to play for a patient.
“I hate it when people see our work as a hobby or a hobby. It’s a serious job, I’m an artist and these days we need these things… Shatta Wale puts on a beautiful live concert because it takes your mind off what’s going on happens… we are as many artists as we want to be. Be Panic, we have a job to entertain,” the rapper explained.
Sarkodie stressed that the death toll could even rise if there was no entertainment.
