This took place after Sarkodie started a twitter trend, dubbed #BehindTheHitz, which showed the producers behind some of Ghana’s greatest hits in the country.
Zapp Mallet felt Sarkodie had downplayed him when he was attached with a fairly younger producer in the comparison of who had more hits.
The producer is known for the production of several hit songs including Daasebre Gyamenah’s ‘Kokooko’, Akyeame’s ‘Mesan Aba’ and Kofi B’s ‘Mmobrowa’, said is it disrespectful of Sarkodie to pair him with these producers.
“There is something called respect which is lacking in Ghana today. For instance, you don’t compare somebody who was churning out hits before you made Kindergarten with your mate who just started a couple of years back. Show some respect, You will also get there,” a very unhappy Zapp Mallet, Emmanuel Mallet, tweeted.
Appietus, who was similarly paired with and challenged by Jay Q (a rather younger sound engineer) said, there was absolutely nothing wrong with comparing music producers irrespective of how long they have been in the industry.
He said in a tweet, “@sarkodie has not disrespected anybody, as music producers n sound engineers our works re always compared by the public n award schemes! If u’ve ever won an award it means u were compared to someone and u won, if u don’t like being compared then return all ur awards #BehindDaHitz”
