The most recent M.anifest Versus Sarkodie beef has got the tongues of fans wagging, especially on the social media.
Sarkodie and Manifest have ignited a social media fire in Ghana with ‘diss’ tracks which are evidently directed at each other.The exchange of words by the two has got everyone talking, particularly on social media.
Manifest’s release of ‘godMC’ was seen by most Sarkodie fans as an attack on the BET award-winning artiste. One of the lines of Manifest’s song says, “What’s a king to a godMC? Numero uno, that be me.” The line is assumed to be a reference to Sarkodie’s proclamation of being king of rap.
Sarkodie’s response could be described as ruthless, depending on which side of the divide you are arguing from. He delivers a lot of ‘punchlines,’ touching Manifest’s use of ‘big’ English words, adding that the ‘No Shortcut to heaven’ hitmaker doesn’t have what it takes to become like him.
“See, I’ll help you for free but ɛfiri nnɛ korɔ no we [will] be working pro bono. I gave you the highest retweets, gave you some bath on the street. I know you dey aim for my spot but you think my position be cheap,” raps Sarkodie.
However, what appears to be the most hard-hitting and divisive line from the song, is where Sarkodie attacks Manifest’s fashion sense, mocking his African print outfits.
“Swag na wonni oo nnyɛ sɛ ebia you no wan shadda. Dope rapper bɛn na ɛde Woodin pam kaba? Afro-centric, masa wo swa.”

Ghana’s Dancehall King, Shatta Wale after listening to the song, also took to his twitter handle to express his thoughts. He wrote:
“@sarkodie why … why you wan end my bro @manifestive ncareer .. i swear ade come cry self ..”
Just as we earlier said while talking about the Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy beef, this seems to be a season when beefs between musicians are thriving. Don’t forget, we are yet ascertain if the fire burning between the dancehall king and Criss Waddle has gone off. From all indications, it appears both the people involved and their fans are enjoying the entire episode. Or, do you think otherwise?
Meanwhile, let’s see what this most reacted to M.anifest Versus Sarkodie beef would be tackled.
