Sarkodie some few weeks ago released a diss song to his best friend Shatta Wale. The song title “advice” since its release got Ghanaians talking especially with the kind of punchlines and subliminal shots thrown at the “Gringo” hitmaker.

But don’t come and tell me you are giving me advice when you can’t even afford your own car? you are driving somebody’s car? they bring cars for you and you drive and they sell it and you drive another one, always you don’t have a number plate…”  he fumed.
