Read all the tweets from below;

So I gather Mark Okraku Mantey and Some Anorld dude on peace fm called me and my road manager “Errand boys” for Sark.. Lol

It just saddens me when these guys sit on radio and speak so much negativity and Ghanaians believe them when they have done nothing to help

Well, Mark, as “Errand Boys” we have won at BET, MTV Base etc, what did u do with Lord Kenya, Daasebre etc. Did u even get a nomination?

The fact that some of us keep mute and grind at the same time doesn’t mean u can Diss and get away with it.. I don’t talk till its necessary

If you have the interest of Gh artistes at heart, u will use every platform u hav 2 support & help push the industry. Thought u knew better”

He however advised people to help make the industry better or rather keep their mouths shut.

“If u won’t support, shut up and let those of us who know what we are about do our work. I expect u to know better.. Help grow the industry”

In an exclusive interview with, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo, an entertainment pundit who was also mentioned by Sammy Forson disclosed the presenter might have been misinformed by a listener as neither Mark Okraku Mantey nor himself described the presenter and his road manager as “errand boys” on Peace FM.
