In the said Instagram post, Sarkodie said “New fire from minister of Enjoyment Peter Psquare, Out now”, in a bid to help his Nigerian music colleague and friend promote his new single.
This however did not go down well with Ghanaians, especially his followers who felt Sarkodie should be using his platform to promote Ghanaian artistes and not the already-made Nigerian acts.
Most of his followers, to show Sarkodie how pissed off they were took to the comment section to throw some unsavory jabs at the rapper while some also used the comment section to advise him to take down the post and promote Ghanaian acts instead.
The anger from Instagram users emanates from how some Ghanaian top acts including Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale were treated by a Nigerian crowd three days ago, when they performed at a Zylofon concert in the West African country.
At the event, the Nigerian crowd refused to give the Ghanaian artistes any sort of recognition, or even cheer them, with most of them just chatting among themselves while the Ghanaian artistes performed.
Since then, Ghanaians have called on the media to stop giving Nigerian music all the attention and airplay on our airwaves and begin to treat their music and musicians like the way they treat ours.
Below are screenshots of some of the comments on Sarkodie’s post promoting Peter of Psquare’s new single.
