Outbreak of CoVID-19 doesn’t mean entertainment should stop – Sarkodie
Sarkodie has stressed that the outbreak of coronavirus doesn’t necessarily mean all entertainment activities must stop.
His comment is on the back of a statement by Shatta Wale that it is wrong for Sarkodie to release a diss song during this period.
“Sarkodie is talking about beef and the industry is happy. I’m disappointed, I thought you were going to tell me he’s donated some few things to some needy people but if Sarkodie has really thrown a shot at me in this time of our life where people are dying when people need help”, Shatta Wale said.
The rapper dismissed the assertion that the time is not right for him to release his ‘Sub Zero’ diss track.
Sarkodie in an interview with MzGee on TV3 said there is nothing wrong with the timing for the release.
“It’s about how you want to see it because how I see it is different…This is music and in this COVID-19 everybody has to do their work”
“We can advocate for the information that people have to hear which is very necessary…but as entertainers, we still don’t have to stop working… so as Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, whoever that is doing music it doesn’t stop because this is the time that they actually need it”, he said.
Sarkodie also suggested that artistes could perform for coronavirus patients to help ease their pain.
