Sarkodie’s diss song to Shatta Wale, ‘My Advice’ was released without the foreknowledge of the general public.
All scheduled events and planned releases went on as normal but the unexpected release of ‘My Advice’ hugely affected the release of works of other musicians who may have to release them to the public again at a later date.
Asembi.com puts together some of the releases that were affected by Sarkodie’s ‘My Advice’.
The first to be affected is Kwaw Kese’s Porkuom. Just as Ghanaians were about to listen to Kwaw Kese’s diss song to Shatta Wale, Sarkodie’s song came to take all the concentration as Ghanaians are known to be paying attention to one thing at a time. Kwaw Kese may have to release the song again in weeks time.
Shatta Wale announced the previous day that he would be releasing a music video off his Reign album. The Mind Made Up music video was truly released but did not see the light of the day because all concentrations were directed at Sarkodie’s diss song to him. Shatta Wale may have to push the song again on the day of Reign album launch.
What hurts people most is M.anifest’s song Fine Fine which features Nigeria’s superstar Olamide. Asembi.com’s checks revealed that only few fans heard of the release and no one is bothered to listen. M.anisfest may have to hold on and fine another appropriate time to release the song again.
The Reign Album however may not be affected as it is an event which would be mainly patronised by the SM fans. The fans would wish to make a statement with the launch and its therefore expected to be one of the biggest album launch ever witnessed in Ghana.
