Rapper Sarkodie has defended the timing of his song ‘Sub Zero’ saying the COVID-19 pandemic should not put a pause on entertainers doing their work.
The song which is said to be a diss song targetted at some musicians got some reactions.
Shatta Wale in a recent interview on TV3 said it was the wrong time to do such songs.
Reacting to the reception given the song, Sarkodie in a skype interview with MzGee on TV3 said his mode of delivery makes it valid to have released the song at this time.
“If I came out to tweet about it or I did an interview talking about it that would mean I have an agenda or something,” he stated.
According to him, the work of the entertainer is more essential in these times to keep people sane, adding that being an artiste is a serious job.
“This is music and in this COVID-19 everybody has to do their work. We can advocate for the information that people have to hear which is very necessary…but as entertainers, we still don’t have to stop working… so as Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, whoever that is doing music it doesn’t stop because this is the time that they actually need it,” he said.
