Sarkodie Didn’t Perform at One Africa Music Fest Because He Felt Disrespected
"Hopefully I make it next time."
Ghanaian rap superstar Sarkodie was on the bill for the One Africa Music Festival held in Dubai last week.
But unfortunately for fans, he ended up not performing, even though he was at the venue and had even done sound check earlier in the night.
After making the decision to not perform, Sarkodie tweeted, "Sorry to fans in Dubai but I'm not performing... hopefully I make it next time ..."

He later posted on his Facebook page, "Nobody plays with my brand, and that be why we no step on that stage... I just feel for the fans that b why I tweet ..."
A "reliable source" was quoted by NYDJ saying, "This happens to be the third time he has been disrespected in the same manner by the Nigerian artists. So many things including scuffle between artists backstage, but he decided to stay out of that and not perform."
