Some few hours ago, the multiple awards winning rapper Sarkodie was attacked by his fans on the social media due to a photo he posted and he just replied by explaining why he did that.
The rapper posted a photo of a four years old girl who mistakenly swallowed caustic soda and needs GH¢ 15,000 for immediate surgery.
The reason for the attack was that, the BET Award winner Sarkodie shouldn’t have posted that photo soliciting for funds but instead should have provided that money to the little girl who needed the help because he (Sarkodie) can afford that amount. Based on that his fans raised several comments condemning and saying he was very stingy and a whole lot.
But the rapper Sarkodie has explained why he posted that photo on his social media as a response to the attack from his fans. This is what the fastest rapper Sarkodie said about the whole issue;
There are things I don’t respond to and all coz they don’t matter but with sensitive case like this I think I need to address… First: don’t let social media change you to become part of the pack…Be human.
First… I saw the pic of the little girl last night (same time I put it up) on Instagram and immediately inbox the guy cos I was touched and gave him the money he put up and more… He wanted to mention my name but I told him I want to stay anonymous… Then he got back to me with this new figure from the doctor as he did his checks again… And even if I cud do it alone…time is all we got for this poor kid and nothing stops me from seeking help from everyone than to say “What wud people say” didn’t even think about that! I wudnt touch this issue like I always do if wasn’t for this kid!!! Thank you if you did help and you didn’t that’s OK too.
