Ghanaian rapper Edem is not the only celebrity who has complained that multiple award winning rapper Sarkodie does not answer or return calls from industry persons.
Traditional singer Sherifa Gunu also made the same complaint, likewise Kwaw Kesse and some artist managers on live radio.
Edem disclosed to Berla Mundi in the studio of Tv3 that Sarkodie has refused to answer or return his calls for reasons best known to him.
In the mind of Edem, king Sark was intentionally ghosting him because he did not want to appear in his “FAVOUR” music video which featured Sark and Efya.
Sarkodie has reacted to the concerns of industry players in an unpleasant way.
The Sackcess Music Boss said not answering or returning phone calls has become a bad habit he has been battling with since he shot to fame.
Sarkodie added that he sometimes does not answer calls from his own mother so celebrities and industry players should not feel offended if he ghosts them.
“The issue of picking calls is a general thing. Even my mom has the same problem with it so I don’t see why it should be taken personally. If you speak to my mother today, she’ll tell you her major problem with me is my refusal to pick her calls,” he stated in an interview with Sammy Flex.
The BET award winning act included in his submission that unless it is an important appointment, he does not feel compelled to answer calls.
“I don’t pick calls all the time unless I have an appointment with that person then I’ll have to keep up. I can agree that he’s been calling me and not getting through but it’s not deliberate. I really don’t want to speak about it because I cannot remember. I still can’t remember what happened so I’ll just have to agree with whatever he is saying whether true or not,” he added
He concluded that even his mother complains bitterly about his annoying behaviour but he does not see himself changing anytime soon
In other words, king Sark is saying those complaining must find another means of reaching out to him.
