The unprofessional attitude shown by Ghanaian musicians will be their downfall really and truly. Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter, Yemi Alade has described as unfair and unprofessional the attitude exhibited by Ghana’s hiplife don Sarkodie over a planned collaboration between them.
She said Sarkodie disrespected her and her team by refusing to show up for the numerous schedules they made for a video shoot.
Yemi told Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday, November 22,” It’s super unfair, unprofessional and unkind for international or any other artiste to have a dealing with anybody and after agreeing to certain things you don’t come through at all, I can count three different countries and three different venues that my team and I had an agreement with the artiste (Sarkodie) in particular and he didn’t come through”.
The ‘Johnny’ hitmaker added that though Sarkodie never got back to apologize for the conduct, she has gotten over it.
“The good thing about the whole thing is that I already had my name so I’m not bothered, he never got back to apologize and I’m over it. He asked that we meet in UK, America, and South Africa and it never happened and because we realized that we were in the same location at the same period and realized that our calendars were kind of linking up in these three countries, we tried to make it work but the moment we tried to link up and make things work it didn’t work, it was gross unprofessionalism on his part,” Yemi bemoaned.
