Ghana’s finest rapper Elorm Adablah, popularly known as E.L, says he felt bad when Sarkodie omitted his name from a tall list of musicians to Casper Nyovest.
In April, South African rapper Casper Nyovest made his maiden trip to Ghana to familiarise with the Ghanaian music industry.
During his visit, award-winning rapper Sarkodie, who was out of the country, tweeted a list of musicians Casper Nyovest should contact in his absence.
The tall list included Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale, R2Bees and even Sarkodie’s proclaimed arch-rival M.anifest. To the dismay of many, Sarkodie left out the 2016 Artiste of the Year, E.L.
E.L, who is currently promoting his single ‘Overdose’ reacted to Sarkodie’s tweet. He told Joy News’ MzGee that he felt bad that Sarkodie did not mention his name in the list.
E.L said “Well, it made me feel kind of bad but that’s him, that’s his list so he can list whoever he wants to list”.
However, E.L, denied claims that there was bad blood between him and Sarkodie.
He disclosed that “No, there’s no bad blood. I am just not messing with any of these artistes anymore. I have come to realize that it is every man for himself. The past doesn’t really count for anything in this industry”.
Renowned gospel artiste, Patience Nyarko has broken her silence on accusations that she has snatched her manager, Wilson Kumi from his wife, Olivia Kumi.
The man at the center of Nana Aba Anamoah’s teenage pregnancy has spoken in self-defense over accusations he abandoned her and denied responsibility for the baby when the pregnancy occurred.
Ghanaian hiplife musician, Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie, has revealed that he is barely able to sleep at night. According to a report by ghbase.com, he stated that he suffers from spiritual attacks every night, but because he serves a living God, the plans of his enemies always fail. Sarkodie is reported to have disclosed this in a freestyle song titled ‘Coming Up’, which is being released to address questions he is often asked by most upcoming rappers. He further stated that some people fail to consider the challenges some celebrities go through every day, but only focus on the glitz and glamour. Sarkodie has over the years, established himself as one of the forces to reckon with in Ghana’s music industry. Considered as one of the top level performers, he has received several awards and favourable rankings. He has shared stages with international acts such as T-Pain, Trey Songz and Ludacris. His foundation, named after him, supports underprivileged children. He has donated money and several other items to orphanages since then.
Almost all the A-list artistes in Ghana want to claim supremacy over the music genres they represent. In so doing, they tend to tag themselves with titles such as king, queen, champion, etc.
For reference sake, rapper Sarkodie calls himself the king of rap, Shatta Wale also prides himself as the Dancehall king while M.anifest on the other hand tags himself as the godMC.
But according to Maradona Yeboah Adjei famously known as Guru, such titles or better still accolades are vanity, therefore, he will advise that his colleagues take their music craft with all seriousness and forget fighting about such stuff.
Ghana’s serial hitmaker, Guru shared his sentiment on the rampant self-acclaimed titles in the music industry via twitter that:
“Your first bath was done by someone your last bath will also be done by someone so drop yourself acclaim titles wai cos all will end here ”.

Zylofon Music signee, Stonebwoy is not ready to answer questions relating to his relationship with the label.
The artiste who was on Daybreak Hitz, monitored by Abrantepa.com declined answering whether or not his music videos were funded by Zylofon Music.
“I don’t want to talk about Zylofon right now, please,” he told the host, Andy Dosty.
Asked why the decision, Stonebwoy replied, “Let’s keep on to the next thing with all humility and respect.”
For sometime now, there has been a scuffle between Stonebwoy and Zylofon Music. There were rumours that the artiste was unhappy with the label and had exited as a result.
But the label in a release somewhat reminded the artiste of his contractual obligations.
Even after the release, the Zylofon Music tag has not been featured in Stonebwoy’s songs nor his videos as it used to, a situation which has ignited conversations on the matter.
Meanwhile, Stonebwoy has hinted the release of ‘Original’ music video.
