The price alone of this single sneaker a can set up a small scale business or build a house in my village Agona Swedru (Wawawse) to be precise but Sarkodie decided to waste it on a shoe that he can’t even wear again because of his celebrity status.
According to a majority of social media users who strongly believe Sarkodie’s urge to play the status game is very unnecessary and shouldn’t be tolerated although it’s his own money.
The rap veteran could have changed and impacted the lives of his struggling die-hard fans by sharing the 1.5 billion amongst them to set up their own business because that’s what positive influence is all about.
We have all lived long enough to witness the worse conditions most of our celebrities find themselves in – After the end of their primes therefore Sarkodie should be mindful of how he throws money around.
