Sarkodie shed light on his label's unique 50/50 split deal with artistes, a remarkable practice considering the financial investments made by the label itself. This revelation was met with surprise and admiration from his loyal fan base.

During the interview, Sarkodie emphasised his commitment to fair treatment and respect for artistes, a rare stance in the often-controversial music industry. He expressed that it was essential for artistes to receive just compensation for their hard work and dedication to their craft.

Sarkodie said he holds this philosophy because that is what he would have wanted if he was in that position. He also added that he did not have the luxury of a record label while coming up as an artist.

The rapper's remarks came as a shock to many due to past allegations made by one of his former signees, Strongman, who claimed that he had not earned much money during his tenure with Sarkcess Music.
