Sarkodie is speaking up about how and why he recorded ‘Try Me’ to respond to Yvonne Nelson’s allegations.
To respond to Yvonne Nelson’s claims, the sharp-tongued Ghanaian rapper released the song on Wednesday, June 28th, 2023 at 1:4am. When asked why he released the song, the rapper stated that it was leaked and he had no choice but to release it.
“I sneaked into the studio to record it because I didn’t want to hear any advice. So nobody sat down to say this is good to go.” Sarkodie said.
According to the rapper, he was sticking with the song because he was also embarrassed by it. In the interview that follows, he reveals that he filmed it in the heat of the moment, when his emotions got the best of him.
The Ghanaian actress called out the Ghanaian rapper in her book ‘I Am Not Yvonne’ for impregnating her and not taking enough responsibility when he urged her to abort the pregnancy.
Yvonne detailed in a chapter of her book that, “I wasn’t the only one responsible for the situation, so I called the man whose potent seed had germinated in me. His name is Michael Owusu Addo, a renowned Ghanaian musician who is better known as Sarkodie.”
“Sarkodie was a budding musician with the potential to become one of the biggest artists in Ghana and beyond. At the time, however, the future looked uncertain, and his way through the maze of life still appeared too foggy to predict. Success was not guaranteed. He was still living with his mother and was not ready to carry a burden while he was being carried by his mother,” she added.
Responding to the charges in his new ‘Try Me’ song, Sarkodie stated that he was not the sole advocate for abortion. He revealed that Yvonne Nelson stated that she couldn’t keep it because she was at school at the time.
“I never thought I was going on this wave, cause I was ready to take a couple of things to my grave. First of all, let me clap for you baby you are brave but you can’t pick and choose what to say pls behave, nobody sent you so Ohemaa if you want to talk, you have to tell the world every n*gga that you f*cked” Sarkodie rapped.
He continues that, “I am not going to sit here and lie we had a thing, first I thought we were cool till I had a thing … You told me you were pregnant and I was the one to be blamed … yes I wasn’t ready but I told you to keep it and you explained that you have to complete your school.“
“To be honest, till date, I don’t believe it because I said my doctor should take care of you and you said you don’t need it. After the conversation, you sent me a text that a friend of yours said she had a doctor and he is the best. So don’t make it seem like I was the one pushing you for abortion because that’s the only part that made me angry,” Sarkodie further said.
