Rapper and former Sarkcess Music signee, Strongman has described his two year contract with the music label as both ‘good and rough’.
Speaking to TV3 after his performance on TV3 ‘Music Music’ last saturday, the rapper disclosed that although he enjoyed working under Sarkcess Music, his two years with the label was not without few hitches.
He indicated that the owner of Sarkcess Music, Sarkodie, did his personal best for him, but expectations from fans were just too high for just the two of them to do anything about.
“But on the real, he was also doing his personal best and we are all trying to, you know, push the brand to that level but the fans; the expectations from the fans out there is very huge that the two of us cannot do anything about” he said.
He added that it is in the nature of human beings to overstep and offend one another in the process of human relations.
“You know it has been good and on the other side too, it would be rough at times. You know we are human beings, no matter whatever happens there would be some one or two issues which would come up that maybe he would not understand or me too I would not understand.
“So in the nutshell, I would say that it was a good contract, but we just need to keep that good relationship even though the contract is no more, we still need to keep our relationship like father and son” he said.
According to the rapper, the only way he can stand as a rapper in his own right is to move away from Sarkcess music.
“Personally, I also see that I am doing really well. The only problem is that so far as you are under Sarkcess, people don’t really see what you are doing. If I was to be on my own, and I am doing what I was doing at Sarkcess, people will see me as a hero”.
Despite leaving the label, Strongman is convinced keeping the ‘Father and Son’ relationship with Sarkodie will do his brand a lot of good.
He believes he is doing well on his own so far, stating he is focused on building sustainable career that leaves him staying relevant on the music scene long term.
