It seems that it is not only Shatta Wale who is being accused of not paying for his music Production.

After MOG Beatz accused Shatta Wale of not paying him since 2018, another producer has also revealed a list of artists who still owe him production fees. The producer, known as King of Accra, published the list which included Ghanaian rap king Sarkodie, which should come as no surprise as the rapper is already known for being stingy nationwide.

It seems that ‘Obidi’ failes to pay for production on his music on 6 occasions.

The likes of Samini, Yaa Pono and Opanka were also found in the list.

One of Yaa Pono’s UpTown Energy boys, Tha Blackboi has jumped to the defense of his boss, Yaa Pono as he has replied to Kumerican rappers, Phrimpong, King Paluta in addition to Shatta Wale in a diss song titled ‘Covid 21’.

It will be recalled that the two Kumasi-based rappers, Phrimpong and King Paluata yesterday dropped ‘That Line’ and ‘Murder Case respectively to diss Yaa Pono and express displeasure over some of the things he said about the Kumerica rappers in his diss song titled ‘Facts’.

Kumerican rapper Phrimpong has dropped a reply diss song titled ‘That Line’ for Yaa Pono’s ‘Facts’ diss song.

Earlier in the day, he took to his Twitter page to announce that he will be dropping the song for Yaa Pono because he disrespected Kumasi-based rappers with a line in his diss track for Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, and Tinny.

There seems to be a brewing beef between Yaa Pono and his day one nigga, Sarkodie and Ghanaians would love how this beef will unfold especially whe these two are noted for their deep lyrical prowess.

Yaa Pono has insulted Sarkodie in his hot new diss song describing him as a fellow with a “rough head” – Yaa Pono is literally telling Sarkodie that he is an insane person.

It appears Yaa Pono is not too happy with how Sarkodie belittled Ghanaian rappers in his big collaboration with Khaligraph Jones and threfore bent to put some sense into Sarkodie’s empty head.

Will King Sark respond?
