Darryl Paa Kwesi Bannerman-Martin, popularly known as Joey B, has dispelled rumours surrounding Africa’s best rapper Sarkodie who to most has an exaggerated sense of importance.
According to the award-winning recording artist, Joey B, Sarkodie is not conceited but rather he is as matured and a genuine person as opposed to the later.
Speaking in an interview, the “Tonga” hitmaker narrated how Sarkodie helped him to overcome depression after a failed relationship in 2016.
Joey B on Accra based Hitz FM also told the host a few good things industry persons can look out for in Sarkodie.
“Sarkodie doesn’t talk too much so I told him everything I was going through, he knew everything that was happening to me, and helped” he told the host.
Joel B added that, he was able to confide in Sarkodie because he is a reserved artiste and “not the type of person who associates too much with other artistes.”
He again revealed that, “U x Me” was originally supposed to feature Sarkodie after he said it is a big song. But considering how he [Joey B] felt at the time, he decided to drop Sarkodie’s verse. “Sarkodie didn’t even react”, he adds.
In 2014, Joey B won New Artiste of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for his song ‘Tonga’ which featured Sarkodie. He has more to say in the video below.
