Dancehall artiste Samini strongly believes that even though he has no issues with rapper Sarkodie, he has taken sides with his enemy.
He noted that over the years, Sarkodie has demonstrated through his words and actions that he supports Shatta Wale, who he, Samini has had issues with.
Speaking in an interview with KMJ on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Samini noted that he wouldn’t hesitate to seek some explanation from the Tema-based rapper should the opportunity present itself.
“When I get Sark[odie] on a one-on-one interview on TV or on radio maybe he would explain to me certain things because there’s been a few occasions that he would throw a shade or two because something that maybe I might have said or might have defended that makes him come across in a certain way,” Samini said. The High Grade Family CEO recounted that Sarkodie took a shot at him in his ‘Borga’ song where he said, “Bisa Sonni Bali, adee a, Yoggi Doggi de ye Samini” to wit ‘ask Sonni Bali what Yoggi Doggi did to Samini’.
According to Samini, when he confronted Sarkodie about the line, he couldn’t answer, and because of that “I realised that when the riots and the beef came, he was towing more to the camp of my opposition because he could not answer my question about the punchline he used on that track.”
The only thing he remembers about Yoggi Doggi was when he battled him in a performance at the first Joy FM Skuuls Reunion which was emceed by Dr Duncan.
Samini further made reference to an interview in which Sarkodie was quoted as saying “he is not a fan of Samini music,” but had early on stated in an earlier freestyle that “he wants to blow and become like Samini.”
The ‘Time Bomb’ hit singer believes that the rapper simply wants to gang up with the opposition in order to defeat him a reason why he, Sarkodie has done collaborations with Shatta Wale.
Samini recently released ‘Xposed’ featuring Bastero, D-Sherif, Rudebwoy Ranking and Hus Eugene.
Interestingly, he added, after he did ‘Xposed’, Sarkodie never tweeted about it but rather sent a message about Shatta Wale’s ‘Taking Over’ which features Joint 77, Addi Self & Captan describing it as his “new Fav Tune”. Samini in a tweet challenged Sarkodie to also tweet about ‘Xposed’ to show that he has not taken sides.
To prove Samini wrong, Sarkodie tweeted about the song.
Asked if he has issues with Sakodie, Samini stressed he is cool with the rapper, citing, the ‘Love Rock’ song they recorded together and a couple of other collaborations which are yet to be released.
“He is a young cat that is really smart and knows how to go about things when it comes to industry related issues,” Samini added.
