Award-winning Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie, known in private life as Michael Owusu Addo and American rapper Ace Hood are on top of Twitter Trends vertical in Ghana after the latter labelled the former a liar.
Five years ago Sarkodie released New Guy featuring American rapper Ace Hood. It was a big deal for Sarkodie, at that time, to land a collaboration with the Bugatti hitmaker..
However, after the song was released, Sarkodie granted interviews where he stated that Ace Hood was the one who contacted him for the feature.
In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Fm in 2015, Sarkodie stated that he was told by his agents in the United States that Ace Hood contacted them for a collaboration with him.
“Such a call makes you feel like a prank but I got a call from my agent in the States who told me that Ace Hood contacted,” he stated.
However, reacting to the interview Thursday, Ace Hood stated that Sarkodie was not being truthful in the interview.
“A lie smh. But I wish him well!,” the American rapper wrote under the post.
A lie smh. But I wish him well!

Ace Hood’s comments have received mixed reactions on Twitter where the video was posted.
Some Sarkodie fans believe Ace Hood is trying to use Sarkodie to “revive” his career while others troll the SarkCess Music label boss.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Ace Hood’s statement;

A Davido album just hit 1 billion streams worldwide , instead of us focusing on pushing our artists to that level like the Shatta Wale Beyonce collab, we here doing Agenda over an Acehood Sarkodie track that was dropped 5 years ago . We are all part of the problem 😓

This is, however, not the first time that Ace Hood is denying Sarkodie’s claims about the collaboration.
The American rapper revealed in 2015 that Sarkodie paid an amount of $25,000 before he agreed to feature on the song.
