Popular Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, otherwise known as Sarkodie, has reacted to criticisms about his cigar photos.
Recently, the Sarkcess Music boss was heavily chastised for posting seemingly smoking photos.
Some organizations even pressured him to apologize.
Reacting to this in an interview Newshuntermag.com monitored on Hitz FM, Sarkodie questioned who he should apologize to.
“The organization that didn’t like me posing with cigars in pictures wanted me to apologize. Apologize to who?” he questioned.
He also explained in his interview with Andy Dosty why he posted such photos.
“Smoking generally is bad. However, if you do a little research on Cigars, you’d realize it is used to celebrate success; achievements. It’s just a sign of victory.”
Sarkodie added: “I don’t just wake up and smoke a cigar. The only time I hold a cigar is what you see in the pictures.”
