Somewhere 2012, Azonto Fiesta song was like a national anthem to Ghanaians who love and appreciate good music. The natives enjoyed the brilliant vibe from the camp of Appietus, Sarkodie and Kesse.
Seven years down the lane, behind the scenes issues about the song has surfaced. It all started when Kesse, a featured artiste on the song, in a recent interview shockingly revealed that he was paid GH¢20 for taking care of the chorus.
As a result, music enthusiasts started pointing fingers at Sarkodie for being the one who paid Kesse that meagre amount. Remember that majority of music download portals in Ghana attributed the owner of the song to the SarkCess Music boss.
Fast forward, Sarkodie came out to say that he didn’t even make a penny off the song under discussion. Besides, the song belongs to Appietus and not him, therefore, if Kesse received GH¢20, Appietus is the best to answer the why and how.
Well, Appietus has also responded accordingly to the claims made by Sarkodie that he didn’t enjoy, financially from the song dubbed “Azonto Fiesta”. Appietus in the studios of Hitz FM with Prince Tsegah posited that;
“Sarkodie made money from the song. Sarkodie performed this particular song on many stages, and every stage they payed him before he performed, and once he always went on stage and performed this song, that’s money he was also making from the song, and so he shouldn’t come out and be saying he didn’t make penny off the song”.
So, there you’ve it. If Sarkodie comes out saying he didn’t make a penny when he made appearance on “Azonto Fiesta”, looking at what Appietus is saying means Sarkodie failed to make Ghanaians privy to the truth in his earlier submission.
