After about a week of being the butt of internet controversies and jokes, Ghanaian musician Sarkodie has responded to his ex-girlfriend Yvonne Nelson.
Yvonne had claimed in her book that a jittery 22-year-old Sarkodie had asked her to procure abortion when she informed him that she was pregnant for him.
The Ghanaian Rap head responded in a new track he released a day ago, which he titled “Try me”.
The song, which was delivered in Twi and English, as is his usual style, has the rapper clapping several rounds of counter-accusations at the Ghollywood actress.
First, he accused Yvonne Nelson of being one-sided in her story and not telling the entire truth, as he claims she carefully crafted her story in a way as to buy public empathy.
He claimed that their relationship was a fling and nothing serious, tagging it a “thing’.
He even accused her of forcing herself on him as he said in his first verse: “I was trying to stay away from you, but you came”.
Much further in the song, he touched on the main part of the conversation that had gotten everyone talking for the past few days, which is the abortion claims.
He said although he was not ready for a baby then, he still told her to keep the baby.
“Yes, I wasn’t ready but then, I told you to keep it”, Sarkodie sang.
This completely negates Yvonne’s claims that he shied away from his responsibilities and made her do an abortion.
Concerning Yvonne’s book, the rapper tagged it an attempt at clout-chasing and a mere money-making endeavor, as he summed up her effort as “just chasing the bag”.
He also said he’s not surprised that the book is doing good numbers as, “We’re living in a world where negativity sells.”
Sarkodie instructed her to take the blame, saying nobody is the cause of her bad life choices.
He prayed she gets the healing she needs.
See lyrics to Try Me:
I never thought I was gonna be on this wave
Cos I was ready to take a couple of things to my grave
First of all, lemme clap for you baby you brave
But you can’t pick and choose what to say please behave
Obiaa ansomawo so ohemaa if you wanna talk
You gotto tell the world every other nigga you fuck
You can’t just play the victim and paint a picture like you were looking for love from all the dicks that you sucked
I’m not gonna sit here and lie we had a thing
First no thought you were cool till I had a hint
Na me fiis3 boys a clocki with the baddest bitch
Nanso s3na yenyinaa y3 Sesa so s3 Cuban links
I was trying to stay away from you but then you came
Wo kyer3 me s3 wo nyem and I’m the one to be blamed
OK, of course I thought that you were trying to start another drama
Abi boy from the street I know the game
Yes I wasn’t ready but then I told you to keep it
Wo kyer3 me s3 wo school na wo ko gotto complete it
To be very honest till today I don’t believe it
Cos me kaas3 Meaa me doctor Mb3 wh3 wo you said you don’t need it
After conversation naa then you sent me a text
S3 wadanfo bi wo doctor bi hut you know he’s the best
So don’t you make it seem like I was the one pushing you for abortion,
Cos that b the only part wey make I vex
Chorus. S3 wonp3mede3 gyai mi
Ad3n na wo Dada aa mi
Wo de Mami me we aa na wode akoma Kwame
Ma mani so ataataame
S3 wonp3mede3 gyai mi
Me ma menkoo

Wo gya me ho no wankra me
Baby girl make you no try me make you no try me
2. Few weeks ago you try to set me up again
Wo hy3 da twer3 me whatsapp s3 you still go through the pain
But me knowing you I kinda knew that you were really up to something
So I said that we should meet so you explain
Me arrange meeting wo Skybar

3nn3 wiase naa nea 3maa b3 ka biaa
Y3 b3 gye edi berma na b3 nom aduro aa 3nyon
We know what it is shorty just chasing the bag
Cos after wei does it really bring happiness back
Take the blame Cos nobody is the cause for your bad choice in life stop the personal attacks
First few hours heard the book is doing well
Who is really shocked Cos everybody can tell
So it’s not because your book is really good but we living in a world where negativity sells
I pray you get the healing that you need
M3n be claimi good girl, you are for the streets
Strategy na hot obaahemaa gye wo 2
Meaa ma gye one copy sharp I’m about to read
