He described his colleague as being a hypocrite


Kwame A Plus, musician and political activist, has said, Sarkodie has deliberately refused to attack the Akufo-Addo led government over current hardships.

Sarkodie, on Monday, December 6, 2021, at a time commercial drivers declared a sit-down strike over concerns that the government should reduce the cost of fuel because it is unbearable, tweeted, "the people are going through it !!! We always do !!! All we ask for is the right environment to hustle/ be productive …"

The tweet caught the attention of social media users with some claiming that the rapper is one of the entertainers who campaigned for the NPP to retain power in the 2020 election.

In a reaction on Metro TV’s ‘One on One’ programme, A Plus told the host, Bridget Otoo that the hiplife musician and rapper is just being a hypocrite.

“That guy is just being hypocritical and if he can’t go straight to Akufo-Addo, I will go straight to him…,” he said.

When asked what he makes of Sarkodie’s inability to call out the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government like he did to the John Dramani Mahama’s government, A Plus said it is because the musician does not want to offend his paymasters.
