A Kenyan music fan has stirred reactions after stating that Ghanaians adore Sarkodie.
It comes on the heels of the rapper agreeing to a statement by Nigerian presenter, Osi Suave, that his countrymen and women do not give him enough credit.
In a tweet, the Kenyan, Alex Mayore, questioned why Kenyans don't support their rappers like Ghanaians have shown love to Sarkodie.
YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Suave stated during an interview with the Ghanaian rapper that he feels Ghanaians don't appreciate him enough. Sarkodie's statement during the interview backed the assertion.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh.com reported that renowned new media publisher, Ameyaw Debrah has pushed back against claims by Osi Suave, a Nigerian presenter, that Sarkodie does not get the recognition he deserves from Ghanaians.
Suave made the assertion during an interview with the Ghanaian rapper in Nigeria this week.
Speaking to YEN.com.gh, however, Ameyaw Debrah stated that there is no truth to the statement because Ghanaians acknowledge and know how important the 'Coachella' rapper is to the Ghanaian music industry.
