I’ve Grown Past Addressing Social Issues In My Music – Sarkodie
Some few years back before the current government took power, celebrated Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie released a couple of songs addressing societal issues that was hitting the country such as dumsor, bad roads, etc.
This made some fraction of Ghanaians tag him as partisan and even cemented their argument since he hasn’t released any of such songs during the era of this government.
The rapper cleared the air on why he hasn’t recorded any of such songs for a while now and has said he feels he has grown past addressing those issues in his music.
The rapper made this revelation in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz this Tuesday.
As monitored by ghlinks.com.gh, Sarkodie said his approach in music has changed over the years with respect to subject matters he touches on.
Using his lines in the recent BET Cypher, he noted that he has moved to examining why black mentality is the way it is and what can be done to address those issues.
He added that it isn’t because the issues of society aren’t important anymore, but there are those fundamental causes which needs to come to the limelight.
He said; “i feel as I’m growing my approach changes. I feel like the main problem now is our mentality and the way we think as black people and that’s where my thought process is at the moment”.
Sarkodie added that he wasn’t the need the need to rate governments because the same problems we talk about are still existing, such as bad roads and all. He called for the need to address the roots of the problem instead.
