Media personality Nana Aba Anamoah has addressed a recent jab made by radio host and artist Blakk Rasta at Sarkodie.
In response to a recent collaboration between the Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie and Bob Marley, the presenter asserted that the iconic Raggae singer would not have approved of Sarkodie’s participation.
In addition, he questioned why Sarkodie was chosen by Marley’s estate managers before criticizing the rapper for his lackluster performance.
“You’re not the only human being on this planet who adores Bob Marley. You’re not wiser than the managers of his estate. This desecration placard you’re wielding makes you look rather inebriated than concerned. Sark was featured because he’s superb. DEAL WITH IT!” Anamoah tweeted on February 4.
In another tweet, she stated “…and oh Blakkrasta stop hiding behind your so called claim of ‘desecration’ because it’s hogwash.”
Blakk Rasta stated on his radio show on 3FM that Sarkodie’s one-way rap that was placed along the lyrics of “Stir It up” would have Bob Marley rolling in his grave.
“You urinate right into the grave and walk away, laughing like a madman on heat. It hurt me so much that I decided never to talk about this issue,” he said.
Blakk Rasta agreed with the controversial entertainment analyst Mr. Logic, who had earlier claimed that Sarkodie’s rendition of “Stir It Up” was unremarkable.
The new endeavor was assessed as a failure by Blakk Rasta. He stated: “The thing Mr Logic said is going to bruise some ego but I’m going to bruise more ego with what am going to say.
“What Sarkodie did was nothing but a desecration of the legacy of Bob Marley. It is so shameful, what Sarkodie did is nothing but a desecration of the holy music…should I go deeper? It is like a king has been buried and you go and dig him up, and steal the gold and diamonds that he’s been buried with.”
