Award-winning rapper Sarkodie, known in his private life as Michael Owusu Addo, has announced an upcoming collaboration with American rapper, Wale.
Sarkodie made the announcement on social media on Saturday, August 1, 2020, to confirm an earlier statement by the American rapper of Nigerian descent.

While the two artistes did not give many details about the song or even when it is supposed to be released, the tweet from Sarkodie has generated mixed reactions from his followers.
While many are anticipating the collaboration between the two rappers, others think it is nothing special because Wale is not the biggest of artistes in America.

shizzlem1 disagreed and even claimed Shatta Wale was greater than Wale:

As recently reported by YEN.com.gh, Shatta Wale is expected to feature Meek Mill on an upcoming song.
The expected feature is one of the reasons some followers who are believed to be Shatta Wale's fans have been downplaying the Sarkodie collabo with Wale.
Another reason for the negative comments is the fact that Shatta Wale has been featured on a song by Beyoncé, one of the biggest artistes in America and the world.
Many of Sarkodie's critics think after the release of Beyoncé and Shatta Wale's Already video, any collabo should have come with an artiste on Beyoncé's level or not far below, and not Wale.
Meanwhile, Nana Akufo-Addo has congratulated Shatta Wale on his collaboration with the American superstar.
The message from Akufo-Addo came two days after Beyoncé released the video for her Already song with Shatta Wale.
