Social media went agog late last night a after a song of Sarkodie featuring Kuami Eugene titled ‘Happy Day’ was supposedly leaked online.
Many people, especially the die-hard fans of Sarkodie and industry players who belong to the opposition NDC we’re shocked because the song actually endorsed the candidacy of President Akufo-Addo for the upcoming December 2020 election.
Following the mixed reactions on social media and the revelation by NDC MP, Sam George that Sarkodie was paid a whopping 500K for the song, Lynx Entertainments Kuami Eugene has come out to provide some clarification.
Speaking to MzGee on 3FM earlier today, Kuami Eugene expressed shock that the song has this political tone whoen Sarkodie did not tell him that was what the song was about from the onset.
He said that Sarkodie only sent him one verse of the song which never contained the endorsement part just to aid him in composing the chorus and his verse.
The Rockstar as he is effectively called went ahead to state that he only got to know that the song contained the endorsement of NPP when he was on set ready to shoot the music video and bemoaned that Sarkodie’s endorsement in the song, which comes with that good amount of money will affect his career.
“Sarkodie only sent me the first verse of his rap which did not contain the endorsement for Nana Addo to aid me do the chorus, it was only at the video shoot that we got to know of the second verse, we confronted Sark’s management, and they denied…I am uncomfortable, I still don’t know Sarkodie’s motive for the song, it will have an effect on my career, I wasn’t ready to vouch for any political party openly….it will not end here” Kuami Eugene told MzGee on 3FM
