Speaking to Graphic Showbiz, Okyeame condemns Sark vs M.anifest beef hinting at possible damages it may cause as regards their career
One of Ghana’s hiplife big wigs, Okyeame Kwame has waded into the ongoing ‘Game of flows’ between rappers Sarkodie and M.anifest. He has boldly condemned the lyrical war between the duo, describing it as unnecessary and potentially damaging for the industry.
Amid the different backlashes against the two from different people including celebrities, Okyeame decides to speak some sense into their heads. Following the release of Sarkodie’s ‘diss’ track ‘Kanta’, which is directed at M.anifest, themedia has been in flames of backlashes and judgements from different angles.
It all started after Sark released the track ‘Bossy’ in which he called himself a king. [Get the full story here] Manifest subsequently released his song ‘god MC’ which was perceived by the Sark tribe to be a diss track against the supposed rap gad.
Sarkodie in his bid to reply M.anifest released a diss track ‘kanta’ directed at the latter. The ‘illuminati’ hit maker abused M.anifest in so many ways ranging from his style of music to his fashion sense, drawing the attention of the entire public to the ‘battle’.
And that brings us to the current situation of the diss drama, which has seen many, including celebrities, take sides as to which diss track is better than the other. But Okyeame has decided to take the side of maturity by calling on the two ‘now enemies’ to order.
Speaking to Graphic Showbiz, Okyeame condemns Sark vs M.anifest beef hinting at possible damages it may cause as regards their career. According to him, the feud will not cause any positive impact on their career as well as the Ghanaian music industry as a whole. The rap dacta said that,
Instead of creating animosity, music should be used to bring fans together so we can concentrate on developing a better performance culture.
Stressing on collaborations instead of competitions, Okyeame said that “Competition is dead, plain and simple”, and that it is the “number one killer” of the industry.
