“Africa Needs Dictatorship,” Says Ghanaian Rapper Sarkodie

The famous Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie was on the microblogging site Twitter to express his disappointment over how Africa and Africans are “oppressed” by the West. He even gave solutions to reverse the trend.


“These systems have never been designed for us, so we can not take advantage of them. The world is built on us but we suffer. They divided us so they can control us, but the good news is that it’s not too late, we just have to wake up, “he said.


In a series of tweets, the rapper added, “Everything will end when we regain our pride, our purpose, our power and even ourselves, but they will work very hard to prevent us from doing it. At this point, to make a change, let’s forget the older generation, even our generation, and forge the next one. “

Relating the situation to the music industry, he said, “Let me use music as an example: African music has been around for a long time, but why is the world paying attention to it now? Because, at this point, we took things in hands, united and together, it was not an individual. Let me predict what will happen: they will come back with money to buy back our rights, build their labels here, sign 90% and control the revenues. And our survival instinct may not help us make the best decisions. “

Pursuing, the rapper adds: “We can not accept the orders of the oppressor, it will never be in our favor. What we need at this stage may seem like a dictatorship and we will feel uncomfortable because we have enjoyed time freedom for a minute, but we need radical measures to survive. “

And to conclude: “I really want to see us survive. It does not matter the quality of my life in this world, but what my future generations will have to face later … “
