The rapper also revealed his difficulties in reaching out to Sarkodie and other musicians he started with for collaborations. These features, which are often a significant boost for artistes, have been elusive for Macho Rapper. He said that with Sarkodie in particular, he has sent out multiple requests to the rapper's team.

He clarified, however, that he was not peeved about being unable to reach them because he understood that they were busy.

Chris Tsormanah speaks on challenges in the industry

Music executive Chris Tsormanah, while speaking to YEN.com.gh, spoke about the struggles of musicians like Macho Rapper and how difficult it is for them to get attention without a record label or management.

Being an independent artiste is no easy task. Without a label, you would have to find funding to push your craft yourself. Either you get someone to invest in your music or do so from your own pocket. An independent artiste would have to pay for his own music videos, promotions, etc. Without proper management, this makes it much more difficult. Already, the market is very competitive, and without all these tools, getting people to pay attention to your music will be a Herculean task.

Sarkodie gets bashed by Ghanaians

In another story, Sarkodie has come under fire on social media for not adding his voice to the current dumsor and economic crises in the country.

The rapper was very vocal about the power outages and hardship in the country back in 2014 when John Mahama was in power.

Sarkodie has, however, been tight-lipped about the current situation in the country, causing several Ghanaians to bash him and call him a hypocrite.
