Rapper Sarkordie has backed protests against economic hardship and mismanagement under the Nana Akufo-Addo administration dubbed OccupyJulorbiHouse demonstrations.
In the tweet on the last day of the protests on Sunday, September 23, 2023, from the U.S. he accused the government of overlooking the suffering of Ghanaians.
Sarkodie's tweets bashing the government have been deemed unexpected because he had in the past been a staunch supporter of the government.
"It’s easy to overlook since most of government officials are nowhere close to the situation on the ground! It’s a Bully when you starve someone and still ask them to follow “Rules” it’s only a matter of time," he said in one of the tweets.

In another tweet, he accused some of the protestors of making the unimportant things trend.
"I watch videos and I see clearly the “real” protesters complaining about the hardship they are facing ( which should be amplified ) and not caring who is there and who is not.. because it goes beyond that … and as always we have the “Clout chasers” changing the agenda on the grounds making the unnecessary trend. Big shouts to all citizens, all public figures with the purest intent to fight for change. May we not miss the target" he said.
Since Sunday, Sarkodie, known in private life as Michael Owusu Addo, has been trending. Reactions to his tweets have been mixed. While some praise him for standing up against the government that he once supported others berate him for being a hypocrite.
