Radio presenter Prince Tsegah has cut Strongman down to size after the rapper made some “unpleasant” comments about music producer Mr. Logic for criticizing his work.
Mr. Logic while reviewing EL, Sarkodie, Teephlow and Strongman’s versions of JMJ’s ‘Riddim of the gods’ on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Tuesday, noted that he was not impressed with Strongman’s and suggested the young rapper redoes his version.
“Strongman’s verse on Riddim of the gods is the weakest,” he mentioned.
Unhappy about the comment, Strongman took a swipe at Mr. Logic. In a tweet, he said: “Coming from a man who has not given me a pen before but said I’m ungrateful, someone who said I’m disrespectful for saying the truth about the hammer issue, I’m not shocked. Bro I’m bigger than hate do something better. #TooMuchWeed.”
His utterance, according to Prince Tsegah, smacks of gross disrespect. Making a submission on Wednesday’s edition of the show, the showbiz critic could not fathom why the young rapper spewed “rubbish” in his attempt to rebut wise counsel.
“How can you talk to senior man Logic [in that manner]? That too much weed? Does he know the implications of that? That is rubbish,” he fumed. “If somebody criticizes your work, you have to take stock of what the person said, not to just react. Strongman, you have shot yourself in the foot by speaking disrespectfully to a senior citizen in this industry.”
Prince Tsegah advised Strongman to render an unqualified apology to Mr. Logic as several stakeholders have taken notice of his unfounded outburst.
He said: “You need to come and apologise to Logic. His opinion cannot be your wish. Strongman, you didn’t do well.”
Meanwhile Mr. Logic has also expressed discontent over Strongman’s response. Speaking on the show, he mentioned that there is a misconception he hates Strongman.
“I was expecting much from Strongman. He does well with rhymes. What I heard yesterday wasn’t the Strongman that I know. It’s such an impudence for him to go off Twitter, saying I am under the influence of weed,” Mr. Logic said.
“I am one of the people who said Strongman was being kept beneath on his label. No one paid attention to that until I said he betrayed Sarkodie, then they said I hate the guy. I do not hate Strongman. They should stop all this hate tag. It’s so petty the way they are going about this thing… He should know he’s speaking to an elderly person. I’m not a kid. The disrespect is becoming too much in the industry,” he added.
