|Controversial entertainment critic Prince Tsegah, has called on Sammy Forson, manager for the celebrated Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie, to apologise to Mark Okraku Mante for wrongfully accusing him of making disparaging remarks about him on an Accra-based radio station recently.
He said, since Mark had refuted the claim by Sammy Forson which he had not rebutted, it will be just fair for Sammy to do the honorable gesture by apologising, for sanity to prevail between them.
The ace entertainment critic made this call on Adom FM’s entertainment show, Adom Entertainment Hall, presented by Mike. When he was asked his opinion on the issue, he said, Sammy could have just made a request to Peace FM to have the recording of the entertainment review program or spoken directly either to the host Kwesi Aboagye or better still Mark O. Mante, since they were all friends and had good rapport.
In an exclusive interview granted to lovinggh.com after the show he further opined that it will be professionally unethical for Sammy Forson to claim “exclusive credit” for Sarkodie winning international awards since it was a combined effort of the artiste himself, due to his prolific rapping skills, coupled with the support of the Ghanaian media and the numerous awards he received from the Ghana Music Awards that hyped him to receive nominations and subsequently winning international accolades such as the BET Award.
Prince Tsegah argued that unless Sammy Forson could prove beyond reasonable doubt that he lobbied for Sarkodie to win the Ghana Music Awards and the BET, he has no moral justification to credit himself for the unbridled fame of Sarkodie.
It will be recalled that Sammy Forson accused Mark O. Mante of calling him an “errand boy” for Sarkodie and used his twitter platform to lambaste the latter, stating that he won international awards for Sarkodie by managing him efficiently and that Mark could not say same for Lord Kenya and Dasebre Dwamena when he managed the two musicians back in the day.
Mark then replied Sammy, stating that when Lord kenya was rapping where was the BET awards category for Africa.
The BET African category for best international acts was established in 2011, when Lord Kenya had stopped rapping and Dasebre Dwamena was no longer managed by Mark Okraku Mante.
