Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie tweeted that he was unable to perform at the recently held One Africa Fest event in Dubai and a number of Twitter user are narrating what happened a few hours ago. A twitter user, @SHOLA_YPT saied that Sarkodie could not perform at the event, because the organizers of the event replaced him with Davido. From the tweets of @SHOLA_YPT, Sarkodie was close to being brought on stage by the host, Banky W ; only for information to be passed to the host to introduce Davido instead. This change of plan was said to have been due to time constraints but it left Sarkodie “disrepected.”
Sorry to fans in Dubai but I'm not performing… hopefully I make it next time … 🙏🏾

Also Ghanaian entertainment writer who tweets from the username @NanaBhard, offer some explanation on why this happened. We have summed up his tweets below:
“Sarkodie will no longer perform because of time constraints. Banky W started introducing Sarkodie; talked about how he’s the African rap king blablabla, and then he was signaled to introduce Davido rather. Sad moments, chale.
“As always, Sarkodie and DJ were present at the venue on time and were to told would perform after Tiwa Savage only to find Wizkid jump unto the stage during Tiwa Savage’s performance even without being announced. The organizers then informed Sarkodie he would perform after Tekno.
Only to find Davido repeat Wizkid’s act. Mounting the stage even without being called. Banky W, the host announced Sarkodie as the next performer while DJ Mensah set up only to be told again that Davido was coming up next. Banky W even seemed surprised.
Sarkodie then felt the turn of events were disrespectful and frustrating.”
