Right after the release of this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) nominees list, Strongman who doubles as SarkCess Music signed act caused commotion on social media in his quest to express his sentiment on the list. In the process, he ‘childishly’ jabbed his label CEO, Sarkodie and the entire SarkNation for not pushing harder to influence his nomination.
In the viral tweet, Strongman posted that; “So everyday the #sarkeffect #sarkeffect u guys dey talk no only one nomination for a whole TRANSFORMER. This is very bad”, Strongman angrily tweeted.
After the unfortunate viral tweet, SarkNation pleaded with Strongman to pull down or better still delete the tweet but he refused at a sight saying ‘he’s been waiting for 8 years to make a mark’. Although he deleted the tweet after some hours interval perhaps per the instructions of Sarkodie.
Now, Sarkodie analysing the rationale behind Strongman’s tweet after the 2018 VGMAs nominees announcement couldn’t phantom what inspired his favorite youngster to have posited that. Perhaps taking into consideration the effort he’s putting into the craft of his favorite signed act.
Sarkodie who has proved to be more matured especially when it comes to responding to criticisms also took to twitter and in an encrypted manner posted that; “These days with social media and all these fake show offs, 😊 makes it very difficult for the new generation to “appreciate”.

Although the SarkCess Music CEO failed to mention names of those he classify them as ingrate but then, looking at the communication situation, it’s obvious Sarkodie’s tweet was aimed at Strongman. In the process, a fan who recognized the rationale behind Sarkodie’s tweet responded that; “StrongmanBurner you and your “fans” should bring chairs…lesson has already started!”.
