Strongman’s response to Kweku Smoke’s tweet which acknowledged the traits of Sarkodie has engendered controversy on social media as tweeps subject the reply to scrutiny.

Kweku Smoke, a rapper, had in a tweet hailed Sarkodie for refusing to be distracted by comments aimed at unsettling him. He mentioned that despite the incessant attempts by a section of the public to make Sarkodie look bad in the eyes of many, the BET Award winner who is affectionately referred to as ‘Highest’ has been focused and keeps supporting talents in diverse ways.

According to Kweku Smoke, if Sarkodie paid attention to such comments, he would not have promoted any song by Strongman who used to be on his [Sarkodie] label.

“I know the feeling highest but am happy you be one focused person you do what you want do for others regardless if Enoe be so like strongman e song sef unoe go tweet again..U follow Gh people aa somebody Dey die sef u go lef am make e die..we the young ones Dey appreciate u,” his Sunday tweet in pidgin read.

A furious Strongman replying the tweet said: “Fake people always trying to prove their loyalty outside. What you heard might even be the opposite of what happened Let this be the last time you drag my name in your useless arguments.”

The response has left Twitter buzzing with a section of the tweeps suggesting Strongman’s remark shows how bitter he is while others say Kweku Smoke’s tweet was ambiguous hence, Strongman should not be faulted. Some are also calling for a lyrical war between the two yougnsters.

In 2017, Sarkodie signed Strongman onto SarkCess Music label. The youngster released hits including ‘Monster’, ‘Transformer’ and ‘Baby Girl’. Under SarkCess Music, Strongman also won the New Lord award at the 2017 4Styte Music Video Awards and the Best Rapper award at the maiden edition of the Ghana Music Awards SA (South Africa).

In 2019, however, Strongman exited after his two-year contract expired. The development triggered questions with some suggesting Sarkodie succumbed to pressure and criticisms of hindering Strongman’s progress.

“Nobody can block your shine, Sarkodie didn’t sign me to block my shine. Because Ghanaians know Sarkodie is a big brand and he signed me, many people thought things would happen soo quickly. I think we didn’t get to meet the fans expectation,” Strongman said that year.

Here are a few reactions to Strongman and Kweku Smoke’s brawl!

LEGACY@iamaboagye

Franklin Acheampong@frankdafinest1

He’s just tryna say if not for the good heart sarkodie got, like he will never help promote strongman’s songs if he listened to Ghanaians . What is wrong about that? Aah b3ma kumasifo) de3 Yene Abie ooh nti mongyae saa aah 3ny3 Guy koraa. Accra people will laugh at us ooh lol…

Monney MasterMind@MonneyMasterMi1

Your tweet doesn’t make sense. Sark already knows da fact and obviously the right person to know how to react to each Strongman’s projects. Ghanaians can’t lecture him cuz surely we were not there when they were into their dealings. Smokes comment should have not involved Strong!

#2@CyaptanTMT

Smoke claims Sark promoted Strongman even when he had no reason to… because apparently, they had beef

i think Strong is tryna say what actually happened between them is opposite to what the media portrayed so Smoke doesn’t even know what he’s talkin abt. Hence the anger https://twitter.com/kofi_seven/status/1254201496448708615

Amanful’s Own 👑💎🐅@MrTurkson_

So basically @StrongmanBurner is saying whatever the Smoke guy heard that made him feel like using him(strongman) in his assertion could be wrong so there was no need using the unsubstantiated information to make any statements that sort to make him undeserved of Sark’s shout out

I Jah Man@THE_AMPONSA

Is he going to substantiate the fact that there’s a squabble between the two?

Ohemaa@ama_anin

Others are asking why he didn’t mention Akwaboah’s name but we know it’s Strongman’s issue that people and even the media used to denigrate Sark all the time. The post was talking about comments people made about his signing of Strongman and not what Strong has done
