Rapper Sarkodie has responded to eminent Ghanaian media figure Kwame Sefa-Kayi’s birthday message and pledged to stop working on additional diss tracks in his discography.
In a tweet on Tuesday, July 11, 2023, Sarkodie stated that he had initially planned to release another diss tune with the name of the Peace FM presenter but has since changed his mind.
When you speak, it is definitive as the only Chairman General! If you’ve requested me to stop, then so be it. I had one track with your name on it. Bless you, my boss; know how much I value you.
On Monday, July 10, 2023, Sefa-Kayi spoke about Sarkodie during his morning radio show on Peace FM. He encouraged him to be a nice boy and avoid writing diss songs.
So, thank King Sark, Happy birthday wherever you are, and have a lovely day. Kwame Sefa Kai
Sefa-Kayi also used the occasion to praise Sarkodie for his musical abilities before cautioning the rapper that he would be held accountable if his name was ever mentioned in a song without Sefa-Kayi’s permission.
Single love. Happy birthday, Sarkodie, and stop everything, as I said. The ace host said in a friendly yet firm voice, “If you don’t know and make a song and mention my name, you will see what I will do to you.
His remarks were in reaction to Sarkodie’s most recent song, “Try Me,” which speaks to the debate surrounding Yvonne Nelson’s memoir and her allegations that he disregarded his obligations as the father of her unborn child.
Sarkodie shared his perspective on the incident and expressed amazement at the circumstances in the song.
“I never imagined I would be riding this wave since I was prepared to take a few items with me to the grave. The opening verses of Sarkodie’s song begin, “First of all, let me cheer for you baby you are bold but you can’t pick and choose what to say, please behave, nobody sent you so Ohemaa if you want to talk, you have to tell the world every ngga that you fcked.
He admitted their prior relationship and recalled how he advised keeping the child when Yvonne Nelson told him she was pregnant. Nelson clarified that she intended to finish her degree as a top priority.
I won’t pretend that we didn’t have a thing; at first, I thought we were cool until I had a thing. You informed me that you were expecting a child, and I was to blame. Yes, I wasn’t ready, but he said I told you to keep it anyhow since you had to finish school.
Before concluding the birthday message, Sefa-Kayi referenced his distinctive beard in the news lightheartedly.
“Your beard is like something I don’t know,” he continued.
Sarkodie, who celebrated his 38th birthday on Monday, is now on a North American and European tour and is in New York City. However, after his name appeared in Yvonne Nelson’s autobiography, I AM NOT YVONNE NELSON, he took center stage in the news cycle.
Sarkodie received a message from Sefa Kayi as a polite reminder to uphold his sterling reputation and avoid getting into pointless disputes through diss tracks.
