The troubles of popular Hiplife musician, Sarkodie, over allegations he insulted Krobo girls in the song, Jennifer Lomotey seems far from over, as he has been threatened with a court action.
The artist has received backlash for a line in the song which claims Okomfo Anokye, a legendary priest in Ashanti folklore, cursed a certain Krobo lady with promiscuity and that explains why public perception women from that tribe are promiscuous: “A noble Krobo lady with beads around her waist who has been cursed by Okomfo Anokye with promiscuity.”
Many deemed this as stereotypical, discriminatory and demeaning to the people of Krobo. He has since apologized, stressing the line in the song is a joke and wouldn’t offend the people from the tribe. He said the mother of his daughter is also Krobo.
But his explanation has not gone down well with some groups from the town who say the multi award winning artist will pay for his sins. The Krobo Heritage and Advocacy Group, for example, has filed a writ at the court accusing the rapper of giving credence to a myth which denigrate a noble group
“This [lyric] is founded on a myth and in this case, this myth is created to cast aspersions on the Krobo people. They are therefore prejudiced and discriminatory, contrary to Article 17(2) of the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana which provides that “[a] person shall not be discriminated against on grounds of […] ethnic origin [...]”.
Lawyer for the group Kwadwo Appiagyei-Atua says Sarkodie must among others pay an amount of GH¢2,000,000 to the people of Krobo or in default face them in court.
Mr. Appiagyei-Atua is seeking the following reliefs on behalf of the group:
Issue an immediate order to the relevant media houses asking them to halt playing the “Jennifer Lomotey” song on their airwaves;
Expunge or cause to be expunged the portion of the lyrics which my clients find offensive and defamatory or completely ban the use of that song from the airwaves;
Expunge or cause to be expunged all audio and video clips of the song which are found on various social media platforms that are registered in your name;
Write an unreserved apology to the Chiefs and people of the Krobo Traditional Area, including a statement to the effect that such an offensive act will not be repeated against the Krobo people;
Make a statement to the general public advising them to desist from transferring or sharing the song which contains the offensive lyrics with anybody else; and,
For denting the image of the Krobo people and dragging their hard earned reputation in the mud, pay a compensation of two million Ghana cedis (GHS2, 000,000) to the Krobo people.

Ghanaian highlife star Akwasi Opoku, popularly called Kwaisey Pee has said the pressures of fame is driving many celebrities, especially in the music industry to bankruptcy.
They are forced to live unsustainably expensive lives expected of them by their fans and followers.
Comparisons with artistes in the US and are often drawn by fans who expect same level of show off, forgetting the average American artiste earn millions more than their average Ghanaian musician.
Speaking on JoyFms drive time program, Kwaisey Pee Observed the situation is exacerbated by recent low patronage of highlife music. Many are moving to hiplife and radio presenters are even reluctant to play highlife music now.
What he doesn’t understand though is while Ghanaians shun their highlife, the country is actively promoting the same genre of music from Nigeria, “our own brothers, Nigerians are playing highlife music, especially when you listen to artiste like Tekno, Flava, J. Martins, they play highlife music, and highlife music is from Ghana, so why do we promote theirs and not ours?
When asked by host Lexis bill if he was broke, the highlife artiste did a bit of thinking, before answering “I am not broke, but I’m ok”.
