Ghanaians descend on Sarkodie over his Twitter rants about African survival

Rapper Sarkodie has come under fire from a section of Ghanaians on social media following his rants over how Ghana and Africa should be run.

In a series of tweets, the Sarkcess Music boss aired his displeasure with certain developments on the continent.

He touched on neo-colonialism and oppression, while suggesting that Africa may need dictatorship to create its own identity.

“What we need at this point might seem like dictatorship and will feel uncomfortable since we have enjoyed temporal [sic] freedom for a minute but we need drastic measures to survive,” Sarkodie wrote.

In another tweet, he said: “We can’t be taking orders from the oppressor… it will never be in our favour.”

He urged the current generation to “make a change, let’s forget about the older generation, even our generation and impact the next.”

The rapper spat more fire in his other tweets, clearly venting his displeasure at how things are done in Ghana and in Africa.

The “Can’t let you go” hit maker has since risen to the top of the Ghana Twitter trends in the last 24 hours.

However, it appears not everybody understands where Sarkodie is coming from, with some people descending on him.

Some believe he is faking the talk, while others also berated him for suggesting dictatorship is the solution to Africa’s problems
