What did I tell you about Anas – Sarkodie to Judges

By on

Sarkodie-in-MiamiAward winning rapper, Sarkodie, has stated that his songs are not political but rather about his feelings on present happenings in the country.

He said his songs were only a reflection on the socio-economic situation in Ghana and although he didn’t expect things to change overnight, he was of the belief that the younger generation who listen to his music would give some thoughts into the issues he addressed in his music.

“I think it’s gonna take time but I’m still sparking up some brains somewhere that we don’t know…I get advice from the old people who are scared because they think the tactic is, ‘oh, let’s come together as one’ but those peace songs, it’s ok. Ghana we have peace. Sometimes we need to have that kind of aggressiveness just to make them think for a second…we need drastic measures,” he said in an interview on Citi FM ahead of the launch of his new album Mary.

“This is not political if you listen to the songs…I don’t know if I should be ashamed of it. If you ask me certain ministers, I don’t know their names…All I know is if something happens and it hits me I’m moved to talked about it. There’s nothing politics,” he said.

In 2012, Sarkodie released a track, Pizza & Burger, in which he rapped extensively on ills affecting the development agenda of Ghana. In that track, Sarkodie mentioned that investigative journalist; Anas Aremeyaw Anas would soon be on the heels of individuals in positions of authority who were into taking brides and cautioned them to desist from the act.

Three years down, Anas on Tuesday, September 8 released snippets of information indicating that he had on record some 34 judges taking bribes from litigants, a news Sarkodie says, “I saw it coming.”
