The 'Otan' crooner boastfully acknowledged his extensive dominance in the African music industry.

Nigerians were triggered by the contentious track and took to several platforms to call out the rapper. Nigeria's skitmaker Oluwadolarz replied to the rapper.

Sarkodie recently headlined a show in Abidjan where he clarified his intentions for mentioning Burna Boy, Davido and Wizkid in his song.

In an interview with RODE, he said he used the three names because they were popular and wanted to highlight his influence in the industry before they started making waves.

Sarkodie emphasised that if he wanted to jab, he would have targeted his fellow rappers, not musicians.

"Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido would never think I want to jab them because if I want to jab somebody, it has to be rappers. They are not rappers," he said in part.
