Ace music producer, Mark Okraku-Mantey has come out to dispel rumors that he harbored an imminent hatred against Sarkodie.
Earlier this month, Okraku-Mantey had taken on the multiple award-winning rapper, Sarkodie over a copyright issue.
The rapper, Sarkodie met Okraku on Saturday to squash all issues in the "Kookoko" brouhaha amicably.
Over the years, many Ghanaians have asserted that Mark Okraku-Mantey hates Sarkodie to the core and that at the least mistake of Sarkodie, then Mark would be all over the issue, blasting Sarkodie and more.
However, speaking on the Accra-based radio station, Hitz FM, Mark Okraku-Mantey squashed the rumors. He, however, asserted that he was always on the case of Sarkodie in a bid to polish the musician.

He said, "It’s because of the passion I have for him, some of us have stood for him years ago, lots of his tough decisions, I’ve been part and you can ask him. People just sit at their homes, on social media and be saying I hate Sarkodie. Lots of times I’ve said good things about him but that one dier, I don’t hear from them".
Okraku also continued that Ghanaians should help mould local stars.
"Let’s mould our stars into who we want them to be. It’s about time Ghanaians accept that whatever I do or say about Sarkodie, it’s because I want the best for him and it’s because of protection."
