Rapper Sarkodie is at the receiving end of the heat that has erupted following a social media campaign dubbed “Fix The Country.”
This campaign is a social tool many Ghanaians are using as an outlet to vent their frustration over the ills of the NPP government and why Ghana as a nation deserves better.
With the likes of Twene Jonas becoming overnight celebrities following his constant show of displeasure at the state of affairs of the nation, many Ghanaians, predominantly youth, believe the time to rise in NOW!
Well, why should rapper Sarkodie be drawn into a campaign that has got nothing to do with music or his trade?
Many believe Sarkodie has become hypocritical after the NPP government took over the affairs of the nation in 2017. They believe the once vociferous rapper who was known and admired for speaking truth to power through his music has coiled back into his shells.
What caused that? That is the unanswered question on the minds of many fans who clearly believe Sarkodie is in bed with the governing party and as a matter of loyalty does not want to speak about their ills.
Why is he not releasing songs to criticise the governemnt? Is he not experiencing the problems Ghanaians are going through? Is Nana Akufo-Addo different from Mahama? — These are the questions from Ghanaians when they remember songs like ‘Inflation” “Masses” “Dumsor” etc which were released by Sarkodie between 2015 and 2016 criticizing the government and calling on duty bearers to do the needful.
Well, Sarkodie does not need to speak before we know he is a hypocrite…many have said with the “Happy Day” song Sarkodie released in December 2020 praising President Akufo-Addo ringing bells in their ears.
