Ghanaians requested it, and now rapper Sarkodie, actual name Michael Owusu, has given them what they want—a song criticising the administration and addressing the country’s economic woes.
A song written to criticise the faltering New Patriotic Party has a leaked excerpt that features rapper Sarkodie.
After receiving repeated criticism from NDC supporters for pretending not to notice the struggles Ghanaians are facing, King Sark, who has been silent for some time, decided to enter the studio and do what he does best (spoke for the masses through music).
He shows his frustration with how the nation’s leaders are handling matters and makes subtle jabs at the current government led by Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo.
Sarkodie talked about political vigilantism, the “no employment syndrome” in the country, and corrupt leaders that drive the economy into a ditch with their wasteful spending in the song.
He lauded Dr. KWAME Nkrumah, the country’s first leader, and stated his passing was a great loss because succeeding leaders had only brought Ghana backward.
This will be Sarkodie’s first song to discuss issues in the nation under the leadership of Akuffo Addo. In order to comment on current events, he published three songs: The Economy, Inflation, and Dumsor while John Mahama was president.
Here is a song sample you can listen to. Sarkodie’s entire song release is being pleaded for by fans.
