Sarkodie Does Not Understand Brand Equity – Okraku Mantey
Obviously music critic and famed producer, Mark Okraku Mantey, would definitely wade into anything that has to do with Sarkodie.However he has expressed his opinion into the ensuing M.anifest – Sarkodie lyrical war – and he didn’t disappoint.
Okraku Mantey rendered his opinion on the saga on Hitz FM, telling host, Andy Dosty that, Sarkodie is a good rapper but does not understand brand equity.
The producer was making reference to some lines in Sarkodie’s acclaimed diss song, ‘Kanta’.
“The GTP line was a no go-area, you don’t do that. Sarkodie does not understand brand equity,” he said.
He delved deeper in other lines he found awkward and out of place in the song.
” The afrocentric bit is another bad line. He is trying to tell us, that people who believe in afrocentrism do not have much , so, they depend on afrocentric stuff? With that line, he spoke against prominent personalities in Ghana who believe in the afrocentrism; Kwesi Twum, Dr. Mensah Otabil, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom and Spio Garbrah.
Mark called on the rapper to apologize, saying; ” He should come back and apologize.”
He also had some strong opinion on the rap skills of the most decorated artist in Ghana.
“Sarkodie is always a good a rapper but he says a lot of silly stuff in his songs.”

He also had this admonition for Sarkodie: ” When he completes his songs, he should play them to some level-headed person to review before he releases.”
On M.anifest, the award-winning producer had this to share as monitored by www.razzonline.com.
“M.anifest, with time, has shown to be deep. He has taken his time to create a brand and most respected rappers respect him for that.”
