Celebrated Ghanaian rapper, Micheal Owusu Addo, popularly know in showbiz as Sarkodie finally drops the much anticipated collaborative single with Akan.
Titled “All die be die” is an Akufo-Addo patented battle cry.
Sark released this new single following an earlier request to meet with President, Nana Akufo-Addo over hardship in the economy.
The then Flag-bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in 2011
told party members at Koforidua that they should gear up for a serious electoral battle in 2012
because the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) would try to hold on to power by all
means, even though all the odds are against them (NDC).
“We need to be bold and courageous for 2012 because Ghanaians need us to come to power,” he said.
Nana Addo cited the Atiwa by-elections where the ruling NDC sent its goons to visit mayhem on
innocent people during that election, as a prelude to what could happen in 2012.
“They (NDC) have intentions to intimidate us in 2012 because they believe that we are soft and cowards. If that is thinking, then we shall see. At least, during the Atiwa by-election, we showed a little of our colours there.”
“You must understand that this party was formed by courageous people. Our leaders who formed this party that has now become the biggest political movement in Ghana were not cowards. So in 2012 we need to be courageous because all ‘die be die’. All die be die,” he repeated.
Via a tweet, Sarkodie threatened that if that meeting doesn’t happen he will drop part two of “inflation x Masses”.
Those are politically motivated songs he released during the erstwhile Mahama administration
in which he bashed the then government over the hardships the masses were experiencing then.
But for its controversial title, this his ‘all die be die’ track is a normal song with nothing politically spectacular in it.
A few years ago, Sarkodie released ‘Inflation’ and ‘Masses’ to touch on pertinent issues bothering the ordinary Ghanaian.
Few weeks ago, he took to Twitter, addressing issues of poor African leadership in a litany of posts.
In one of his posts, he suggested that what could possibly be the solution to Africa’s problems is a dictatorship.
“What we need at this point might seem like a dictatorship and will feel uncomfortable since we have enjoyed temporal freedom for a minute, but we need drastic measures to survive,” he tweeted.
“All Die Be Die”, a hip-hop song produced by Ware.
Sarkodie who often raps in his native language Twi rose into limelight in 2015 and has remained relevant since.
He won the Best International Act: Africa category at the 2012 BET Awards, and was nominated in the same category at the 2014 BET Awards.
