If you’ve been wondering why such a wonderful story between Sarkodie and Strongman had to end so early, then the answer is finally here.
According to The highest on the Showbiz A-Z on Joy Fm with George Quaye, the pressure from the fans and media was a major to thier split. He said they enjoyed and are still enjoying a great relationship, however, they failed to agree on a new deal after their initial two-year contract expired because Strongman was not been given the right judgement by the media and the fans.
The usage of the influence of Sarkodie as a metric in measuring the success of the Kumasi rapper did not go down well with both parties as they expected more from their followers and the media.
The fans, the media had a lot to do with our split. We could have extended our contract but I think everything Strongman did was measured on what Sarkodie could do. So he could be having a million views on his YouTube but that was overlooked and then talking about the fact that Sarkodie could do more.
So it takes away the art and his numbers definitely increased but I felt people were criticizing me more which I think was not fair.
