Sarkodie made some efforts, but his strength was inadequate - Strongman reveals

Strongman discussed the tragic condition of his former record label when asked why none of the tracks on his finest all-time EP had music videos. Sarkodie's record label, Sarkcess Music, required him to split their meager resources with Akwaboah and Sarkodie himself as a signed artist. This, he reasoned, was a tough situation. According to Strongman, Sarkodie may have been unable to fund more music videos due to the record label's resource constraints. Before signing on more artists, he recommended that investors would have been perfect for the record label.

“Honestly, I have never asked Sark to shoot a music video for my song. If Sark would shoot a video, he will shoot it after listening to the song, and he thinks that music needs a push. So, after I finished that project … he didn’t tell me to come and shoot a video’’

Strongman went on to explain that he was aware of the circumstances underlying Sarkodie's reluctance to have his music videos shot. He noted that getting money from the same sources that fed his family, fine clothing, and a luxurious lifestyle was difficult.

“The reason why I don’t blame Sark that much is because he is an artiste who signed Akwaboah and myself. And under Sarckcess, we didn’t have investors. It was Sark’s own money that was used to finance all the projects. At that time, he also had video projects he was undertaking, so after shooting music videos for Akwabah and himself, he might have already spent about 100,000. So, if I try to be considerate a bit, at the end of the day, my project suffers’’

“But I can’t complain because I understand that the money is from his own pocket. So, the only problem I feel we had at Sarkcess was that he was supposed to get an investor before signing us. Then every video will come. But as he didn’t get an investor at that time, his own money and he had to take care of himself, family plus he likes big big outfits so that you pay him more…”
