Ghana�s fastest rapper and BET Awards 2012 Best International Act winner, Sarkodie also known as Obidi Pon Bidi by his fans has criticized event organizers who use images of artistes who will not feature during their event to make their events popular to desist from such acts.
Sarkodie who described the event organizers as trying to be smart tweeted: �Ghana event organizers always wanna play smart.. jst cos u cudnt meet ma fee n u still need ma fanbase u print posters with ma face on.�
According to his tweet, he had been contacted by the event organizer but although they could not meet his fee thus making it impossible for him to perform as scheduled, the organizers have printed posters in his name to get the attention of his fan base.
Subsequent tweets revealed that when his team contacted the event organizers, they denied knowledge about the posters.
�When we called them they said they don't know who printed now they printed new one without ma face... but still first one is on sites...
Event organizers 've been ***** on gh musicians 4 loong
I ve never been this type but it hurts..... show some respect... cos we deserve..
Same media gon make u look like u arrogant when u speak out cos they dun wan people 2 know da shit they do...� he tweeted.
Sarkodie also lamented over treatment meted out to musicians by event organizers adding that they don�t get the same treatment that foreign artistes get.
�They use our musicians like disposable plates. I won't b selfish cos im in a safe place.. I feel 4 everyone... fans never know what goes on
They choose to meet all demands made by foreign acts ... and tell me im too known cos I said I need dressing room..
We don't ve one musician taking gh 2 da nxt level cos they get killed even b4 they get der..... But watch me... God forbid
All they waiting 4 is 4 me 2 fall so they wudn't ve 2 go by ma rules... goodluck... they never wanna see a powerful musician,� he added.
