Sadly, Sarkodie who is often regarded as an opinion leader so far as Ghana music is concerned and expected to know better has yet again done the unthinkable by failing to give that little recognition to Gasmilla who apparently introduced Azonto and its accompanying dance moves and everything points out to the fact that he is on a mission to change the history of the Azonto genre by discrediting Gasmilla.
During the hay days of Azonto, he is one of the few artistes whose career was catapulted by Azonto when he released “you go kill me
Sitting back and watching how Gasmilla has been ignored for his immense contribution towards the grounding of Azonto after an ingrate who calls himself a King’s quest to bring back Azonto which he Sarkokdie thinks is dead is very sickening.
Will Sarkodie himself be happy if he is not given the recognition for his immense contribution and holding rap music in Ghana? Hell no! By common sense and with all due respect, Sarkodie should understand that what is good for the goose is perfectly good for the gander. You cannot downplay someone’s toil and achievement like that
I want to believe that Sarkodie’s disregard to Gasmila was as a result of oversightedness and I, therefore, would like to implore him to save himself the embarrassment by honourably apologising to Gasmilla.
How ridiculous and painful it is to be denied what rightfully belongs to you because you may not have that strong voice to tell your story and state original facts about the originality of a subject matter. It is very clear that Sarkodie is en route of changing the history of Azonto because of his strong influence in Ghana’s showbiz.
In case Sarkodie has forgotten, Gasmilla’s ‘Aboodantoi’ which was released in 2011 was the beginning of Azonto. Gasmilla followed up with some incredible dance moves which he later taught people how to perfect the moves by taking azonto lovers through azonto moves.
Sadly, we are in a nation wHere writing our own history has become a can of worms. We sat down here and waited for foreigners to write down the history of Hiplife for us, how much more Azonto? It is high time for Ghanaians to well pen down the history of our very own little innovations to avoid ownership and originating battles in future and same advice goes to Gasmilla.
