As you all know, Sarkodie won the BET Hip Hop Award 2019 for Best International Flow.

After the win, almost all celebrities celebrated him in the exception of Shatta Wale.

Well, the African dancehall King in a new interview was asked why he didn’t congratulate his counterpart and in response, he said congratulating the rapper won’t put money in his pocket.

He said all these in an interview on Paul Adom-Octchere’s Good Evening Ghana show which was aired yesterday night.

According to him, it’s a complete waste of time and congratulating Sarkodie will not in any way put money in his pocket, hence the reason he has been mute on the issue.

He further stated that his general focus is on money and not awards people win.

“I don’t think it’s necessary…yes award is award, I don’t see award like something that will get me money into my account…I don’t see it like it’s important,” he said on the show.

“He’s not the only person who has gone to BET. Samini went there and others too did so I’m not going to be wowed by this”., Shatta Wale also pointed out.

Asked by the host if he hates Sarkodie, the Dancehall King said, “I don’t dislike him,” but only hates the kind of life he lives because he paints a ‘perfect’ picture of himself which isn’t true in real life.

Describing the kind of life Sarkodie’s lives, Shatta Wale said the rapper lives a “lie life”.
