Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has broken his silence on the perception people have of him about being stingy when it comes to throwing money onto his fans.
In Ghana, many celebrities and people in authority are known to give money to their fans or throw money into crowds during public appearances.
However, in an interview with a South African based podcast, 'Podcast and Chill with MACG', he said that he is not happy being captured on camera giving money to people.
“When I come out and I see cameras, and I have fans saying ‘hey we need money,’ I am not going to do it – I am not going to be forced because you have cameras on me. I will sit in my car and go.”

The CEO of Sarkcess Music noted that a video or photo of him giving out money to people reduces the respect he has for them.
“I hate when they have a camera on me and I have to give money to people. To me, it means I do not respect you… That’s how I see it.”
He further explained that his personality as ‘Michael’ sometimes contradicts his character as (Sarkodie) as a public figure.
He stated that the expectations from the public would not dissuade him from staying true to his personality, his standards, and choosing what his heart desires.

He stated emphatically that no one can compel him to give money to his fans, especially when cameras are on him.
“If I have money for you and I want to give you money, there is a way that I have to do it. But funny enough, that [doing it for the camera] is what our people love —and I am not ready to change because of that. It doesn’t feel right to me. So it comes across that I am a stingy person.”
He added that regardless of the negative perception people may have of him because of this, he does support people
“And if I want to support… I support people — and that’s it for me because I like to support people — and it feels good when I do it."
