Ghanaian Tema-based rapper Sarkodie has touched the hearts of the citizens of Tema and its environs with a massive donation.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh, Sarkodie’s team were captured offloading goods including bags of rice, tomato pastes, soap, bags of water, canned fish, and what have you to the people.
The people had thronged the venue where the items were being shared to grab their portion.
According to the narrator, the gesture is from the Highest rapper through his Sarkodie Foundation.
He said the target was people who lived in slums, mainly old women, the blind, and other physically challenged people.
Sarkodie, the narrator indicated, said he needed to put smiles on the faces of the people of Tema in this coronavirus times.
Many people hailed him in the video, and YEN.com.gh's eyes caught one elderly woman who pronounced blessings on Sarkodie.
The woman said in the Akan language: "Sarkodie, may God double this and return it to you in many folds. We thank you so very much."
Many people have reacted to Sarkodie's gesture in the video:
Prisca and Afia, for instance, prayed for God's blessings for Sarkodie:
priscaasare777: "God bless you my King Sarkodie u do all, we know u don't show off and brag like larg mouth."
maa_afia__: "GOD BLESS HIM !!"
Felix observed that Sarkodie did that out of pressure to show off and not necessarily to help the people:
xl_felix: "Giving that Unless people talk before you give dierrrhhh.....#Ihopeitsfromtheheart. God bless a cheerful giver
Meanwhile, this is the first time Sarkodie has made such a donation.
He has often been described as a stingy man by fans as well as his own colleague musician Shatta Wale.
That is why some have argued that Sarkodie made this donation out of pressure and not from his heart.
