British rapper and singer, Stephanie Victoria Allen, better known by her stage name Stefflon Don, said she doesn’t know who Sarkodie is.
Allen said of all Ghanaian musicians, she only knew Shatta Wale but not “the others”. She was speaking in an interview with Ameyaw TV as seen by Yilayili.com, on which Ghanaian musician she would want to collaborate with for a song.
The Hackney artist, best known for her 2017 single “Hurtin’ Me” featuring French Montana, was interacting with the media ahead of her scheduled performance at the ‘This Is New Africa’ (TINA) Festival happening in Accra on Friday, January 4, 2019. When asked which Ghanaian musician she would wish to collaborate with, Allen asked the press men to suggest some names for her since she was not familiar with Ghanaian musicians.
Sarkodie’s name was mentioned, however, the British singer said: “Who is Sarkodie? I don’t know Sarkodie, I only know Shatta Wale. I don’t know of the others.” Her remark is sure to spark fresh controversy in the music industry and among fans of the two musicians.
