Ace Hood has called out Sarkodie over claims that he was the one that began proceedings for their collaboration, New Guy.
The duo had shot the video for the song in Miami last week, and Sarkodie had claimed after he returned that it was Ace Hood’s reps who had contacted him first.
“I didn’t make any announcement because basically I kind of doubted it which is bad but then such a call always makes you feel like ‘is it like a prank or something’ so I got my agents in the States who actually contacted me that Ace Hood contacted,” he said.
“When he [Ace Hood] kind of checked out what was happening in Africa, [he] look[ed] at the bunch of people he can connect with, the type of sound that he was looking for and then lucky for Sark it was me.”
A fan on Twitter, who didn’t seem to believe Sark’s story, told Ace Hood about the story, who denied it.
According to Ace Hood, Sarkodie paid him $25,000 for the feature.
