Ghanaian rapper, Strongman has kicked against several calls for a rap battle between himself and fellow rapper, Yaa Pono.
Strongman’s decision is hinged on the fact that he has so much respect for Yaa Pono that he does not think it will be appropriate to face off with him.
The call for a battle between the two was started by fans of the two rappers earlier this month who on social media.
Even though the exact reasons are still unclear to some of their fans, both rappers have remained mute on the issue.
Reacting to the calls, Strongman told MzGee via Skype interview on TV3 New Day that it won’t happen.
“Yaa Pono is like a godfather to me…so there wouldn’t be any battle of that sought. I knew Yaa Pono like two years before I even got to meet Sarkodie…,” the ‘Bossu’ rapper revealed, adding “I do respect Yaa Pono any day, anytime”
According to Strongman, he has a very healthy relationship with Yaa Pono and they talk a lot.
“This game, respect is very necessary… so for me I do respect a whole lot of people in this game that is why when someone comes to disrespect me, I feel bad…,” Strongman expatiated.
“I do respect people who came before I came…I will only choose to reply a beef in case some throws a shot at me, ” he added.
Strongman was however quick to add that while he has respect for fellow rappers, he is “not afraid of any of them.”
