Kuami Eugene’s management has pointed out Sarkodie as not trustworthy. According to Kuami Eugene’s management, the reigning Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Artiste of the year winner was never aware of the lyrics in the song ‘A New Day’ that are political.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me to do the chorus. It was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse, we confronted Sark’s management, and they denied. I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song. It will have an effect on my career, I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly….it will not end here,” Kuami Eugene said.
In the ‘A New Day’ song, Sarkodie talks about being sorry for criticizing President Akufo-Addo in the past years as he has achieved in ending dumsor. This part of the song draws condemnation from supporters and the senior officials of the NDC and this left minority leader Haruna Iddrisu wondering why the musician claims that Nana Adddo resolved dumsor.
”Sarkodie or any other musician whose career is at moribundity can receive any amount of money to endorse a political party. However, the endorsement message should not be punctuated with naked lies or embellish with sickly untruths. It is an incontrovertible fact that His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama solved dumsor. And there is overwhelming evidence to this fact potentiated with data. Data cannot be hobbled with some low bars musical lyrics,” the Minority leader posted on his Facebook page.
