Sarkodie might have another reply to Shatta Wale on a new track called ‘Gimmie Way’ featuring Prince Bright of Buk Bak fame. A line in the song makes use of a Shatta Wale song title in reference to describing a state of weakness and no hope. Sarkodie offered some of his followers the opportunity to listen partly to this song and other unreleased material on Instagram from a recording studio in the United States of America yesterday between 10pm and 11pm.
Multiple award winning rap artiste Sarkodie yesterday during the late hours of the night, caused some excitement among some of his fans on Instagram by dropping bits of some of his unreleased songs from a studio in America. Among the songs played was a song titled ‘Gimmie Way’ which contained some ‘braggadocio’ lyrics. A line in the song “Wo be b3 ba lockdown na boys are gbojo (during the lockdown people were weak)”, was pointed out by some fans to be directed at Shatta Wale; knowing well that Shatta Wale last year had a hit song called ‘Gbojo’. Also the song opens with two lines describing Sarkodie’s invincibility to attacks from enemies. Sarkodie and Shatta Wale have been recently caught in a verbal war as both multiple award winning artistes have repeatedly criticized each other for one thing or the other.
Sarkodie’s recent action may have been a response to some online critics who have ridiculed the artiste for getting locked out of his country as a result of the Cornavirus pandemic. He joked about being lockdown outside his home country in a song called ‘Fa Hooki me’ meaning ‘hook me up or pass it to me’. In a line, he described what he did with his time indoors during the curfew. ” Fans hooki me left and right, Lockdown die me ko no sex and rice ( A lot of my fans a grabbing me from left and right, as for the lockdown, I am handling it with sex and rice)”, he said.
Sarkodie gave online viewers a taste of other unreleased songs like ‘Insha Allah’. Later, after appearing and jamming to the songs with two people in the studio, he ended the live transmission at almost 11 o’clock with over 1,900 followers watching at the moment.
