Sarkodie has apologized Freddy Meiway, after the Ivorian music icon revealed that the rapper had disrespected him.
Freddy Meiway who performs at the second edition of Exclusive Men Of The Year Awards this Saturday evening in an interview on Joy FM ahead of the show said Sarkodie disrespected him sometime past because he sent Sarkodie a song to feature on for more than a year and a half but the rapper failed do the song.
He said:“I have respect for the old ones, Kojo Antwi, Amakye Dede, Amandzeba, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, Osibisa, several of them but the new generation, I know a few names, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy. I know another [one] but I don’t want to talk about him, his name starts by S but he [doesn’t] have respect for the old man.”
Hours after Freddy Meiway’s comment, Sarkodie took to twitter to apologise to the legend. He said in a series of tweets:
“Awwwww daddy!!!!!!! I’m sooooo sorry !!!!! I still feel bad till date daddy … I do respect you a lot
So legend Freddy Meiway sent me a record long ago and song was soooo deep I had to take all time in the world to be able to fit on it….It took me for ever and I never announced it cos was that excited and wanted to really kill it…Sometimes it happens but my wrong was not keeping him updated and always wanting the perfect time to get what I needed for the record…I’m sorry daddy … Really sorry … Hope I can still make it up to you … I respect you a lot !!!!”
