The release of Sarkodie’s diss song directed at Yvonne Nelson has caused a frenzy on Ghanaian social media. Sarkodie, known for his silence on controversial issues, decided to respond to Yvonne Nelson’s allegations in her memoir titled ‘I Am Not Yvonne Nelson’. According to her book, Sarkodie allegedly pressured her to have an abortion 13 years ago because he wasn’t ready to become a father and already had a serious girlfriend at the time.
Sarkodie’s new track, titled ‘Try Me,’ was released in the early hours of Wednesday, June 28, 2023. Within just 12 hours of its release, social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook were flooded with reactions from listeners who couldn’t get enough of it.
Some netizens felt that Sarkodie’s response was too harsh, particularly due to certain remarks he made in the song. They believed he went overboard in his attack on Yvonne Nelson.
On the other hand, many of Sarkodie’s fans saw this as the perfect retaliation Yvonne deserved for unnecessarily tarnishing his image in her book.
Here are a few excerpts of the reactions circulating on social media.
