As an Ewe rapper, I can’t d*ss Sarkodie who also represent the Akans – Edem

Ghanaian rapper, Edem, has shot down claims that he ever threw a lyrical jab at Sarkodie and added that it will be a wrong move on his side with some explanation.

Edem and Sarkodie

According to “Heyba” rapper who was speaking on Kumasi-based radio station, Luv FM, he sees Sarkodie as a rapper who also represent the Akans and a "beef" between them will be too sensitive due to their tribal backgrounds.

“I think in the space of hip-hop people match up rappers who they think have the same rap prowess or dexterity.

I don’t think going at Sarkodie will be a good thing to do because I represent a group of people even though I am loved by Ghana" quoted the rapper to have said.


In further explanation, Edem added that "I am seen as someone who reps Ewes and he is a Twi artiste representing the Akans. It's not right to do such [beef] in a country where we are still struggling with tribalism”.
