Award-winning Ghanaian rap act Sarkodie has rendered an apology to legendary radio and television presenter as well as events promoter Simon Boateng well known as DJ Abrantee.
The apology comes after the musician inadvertently left the promoter (who has been of so much support to his career) out of invited personalities for his album listening (No Pressure) in London.
He rendered the apology during a recent interview on Y102.5FM in Kumasi where had embarked on a media tour ahead of his birthday celebrations and album release.
“I’m using this platform to say is sorry to DJ Abrantee. I know he is not mad but he felt some way because I did my listening in London and he wasn’t involved. That listening was organized within 24 hours. I had no idea about all the people present. Personally, I didn’t even call anybody as it was organized by Kojo. I just had to show up. A lot of people felt I deliberately ignored them but that was not it”, he said.
Prior to the apology, he spoke highly of DJ Abrantee and his partner May7ven.
“DJ Abrantee actually organized my 02 Indigo Concert. As much as I believed in myself at the point, he had this believe in me. He asked that I stop doing ‘local’ shows. It was too much for me to bear. I had to believe him and he just saw everything through and made that history so personally, I have this attachment to him. I believe him when he says I should do something.”
