It even got to a point where Sarkodie released a song titled ‘Man’s World’ which was specifically made to throw subtle shots at Mark and Peace Fm’s Akwasi Aboagye.
Well, reports making rounds is that, Sarkodie could face a court action as Mark, the famed music producer intends to sue Sarkodie over the Daasebre Gyamenah tribute song he did.
Sarkodie and Akwaboah, has the song,’Kokooko’ produced by Jay So – a tribute to the highlife legend, Daasebre Gyamenah, who passed away last year.
