On Wednesday July 10, 2019, the Black Entertainment TV (BET) caused a stir among Ghanaians on Twitter as it mistook Ghanaian rapper Strongman for his former record label boss Sarkodie.
In a tweet to celebrate Africa’s most celebrated rapper, Sarkodie who turned a year older on the said date, the media outfit rather posted an image of Strongman alongside a birthday message which read, “Sending Birthday love to @Sarkodie , enjoy your day bro”
This actually got a lot of people talking especially as Sarkodie has on several occasions worked with the BET.
Sarkodie however laughed off the tweet and mentioned his former label mate calling it ‘Legendary’
BET after a couple of minutes deleted the post and sent out another birthday wish with a correct picture of Sarkodie.
Sending birthday love to @sarkodie! Enjoy your day bro! 🖤🖤
