Samini, a reggae-dancehall performer, has stated that M.anifest is a better rapper than Sarkodie.
Samini announced this decision during an interview with Bella Mundi on TV3’s “Day Show” show, which caused reactions from the two rappers’ supporters.
Samini explained his choice by saying that he thinks M.anifest is a superior rapper with richer, more profound rhymes.
“I think he’s a better rapper and he has better lyrics, he has deeper lyrics. No disrespect to Sarkodie, but those two rappers, Manifest is in a different league.”
He was very clear that his ongoing feud with Sarkodie, which has recently received public prominence, had nothing to do with his decision between the two rappers.
It’s important to remember that Sarkodie and M.anifest just competed in a rap battle to see who was the best rapper in Ghana.
Sarkodie’s song “Bossy,” in which he proclaimed himself the greatest rapper, was the catalyst for everything. M.anifest disagreed and addressed Sarkodie’s assertion with his song “god MC,” which had lyrics that did so.
Sarkodie answered with a different song called “Kanta,” which questioned M.anifest’s rap prowess as well as his sense of style.
Both Sarkodie and M.anifest are regarded as outstanding rappers who have amassed various honors and found great success in the Ghanaian and African rap music scenes.
