Sarkodie has been called out for what some say is his hypocrisy after he finally commented about the ongoing #FixTheCountry campaign.
For over a week, Ghanaians online have taken on the Akufo-Addo-led government, imploring him to resolve the issues facing the country.
In a statement seen by YEN.com.gh, the Happy Day rapper stated that he has always been a supporter of the cause, and its conveners.
Sarkodie's statement was generally met with skepticism with many questioning why he hasn't released a song aimed at the government as he did under former President John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC.)
"Hypocrisy and arrogance in this, you boldly and happily criticized John Mahama in many of your songs but you have gone silent under your party’s president only because,” happy day” money is tormenting you. Ayekoo," retorted Perry Annan.
Raphael Kama added: "His legal team did a great job with this write-up. We must be stupid to think that Sarkodie is a neutral guy and has been on the neck of all the government equally. You did two songs to diss a Mahama's administration and did Happy day to amass vote for your uncle which even failed"
"this you?" alluded asabere to a song released by Sarkodie where he insinuated that Prez. Akufo-Addo should be reelected.
In other news, television host and actress, Efia Odo has denied allegations that conveners of #FixTheCountry have been paid by John Mahama, the former President of Ghana.
On Tuesday, May 8, 2021, Odo and other supporters of the campaign notified the Ghana Police Service of their intention to embark on a demonstration against the government on Sunday, May 9, 2021.
It has been denied for COVID-19 restriction reasons. Since then. some people have made assumptions that the actions of the conveners are because they have been paid by Mahama.
Efia Odo responded to the critics, saying: “Which money have we gone to collect? All that is agenda? It’s fake. It’s false. We debunked all that, said Odo in a new interview with Zionfelix. [Sheldon] is a part of those who want to defame us. Where’s Mahama’s signature on that paper. There was no signature.”
