Renowned Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie born Michael Owusu Addo has rendered an unqualified apology to President Nana Akufo-Addo over a ‘disparaging’ tweet he made to the president on November 3, 2020, prior to the 2020 General elections.
Recall that Sarkodie in refuting claims that his controversial verse on his Happy Day song which featured Kuami Eugene was an endorsement of Nana Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party(NPP) made a tweet that a section of Ghanaians indicated that he disrespected the president.
Sarkodie said on his ‘Happy Day’ song said “If I complained about ‘Dumsor’ and I also hit on inflation but today, if there is electricity and my kids, will go to school free, then Nana ‘toaso’ (Nana continue).” which suggested he endorsed the president.
The verse, which had since generated mixed reactions on social media, also had the Presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, quoting Sarkodie’s tweet with “Nice song @sarkodie and @KuamiEugene. Indeed, the battle is still the Lord’s”, with the hashtag #4MoreForNana.

Sarkodie however replied ‘harshly’ to the president while trying to debunk allegations that he endorsed the flagbearer of the NPP.
He quoted the President’s tweet with “Nana M3nfa bronya ho nre akoko oo lool !! (to wit ‘Don’t misinterpret the song’) when I say aban ( all parties ) Shouts to yourself x JM but if i feel like pointing out the negatives too you know how we do”.

However, Sarkodie has apologized to President Nana Akufo-Addo over the above tweet in a recent interview on Hitz FM.
According to the ‘Coachella’ hitmaker, he didn’t mean any harm with his tweet as he wanted to make a lighter situation out of the issue.
“I want to use this opportunity to apologize to President Nana Akufo-Addo for the tweet I made when he commented on my Happy Day song. I didn’t mean it in a harmful way. I just wanted to make a lighter situation out of the issue.” Sarkodie told Andy Dosty in an interview on Hitz FM monitored by browngh.com.
