Don’t compare me to Sarkodie and co, it is disrespectful – Amerado Burner

Don’t compare me to Sarkodie and co, it is disrespectful – Amerado Burner

Ghanaian rapper, Derrick Sarfo Kantanka, better known by his stage name Amerado Burner has advised showbiz critics not to pitch him against others in the industry, adding that “these legends have earned their due and it would be disrespectful to initiate a comparison”.

“I don’t like to be pitched against the Greats. Somebody like Okyeame Kwame, you can’t pitch me against him as to who’s the best rapper. No! They are in the craft. They’ve worked on it so much. But then you can only compare lyrics. Even with that, you have to give them absolute respect,” Amerado stated during an interview with TV3.

The Kumasi born rapper remarked on an incident where he lashed out at a presenter when Sarkodie’s name came up. He said, “I love Sarkodie. I’m a fan of Sarkodie. But then the presenter was trying to pitch me against him. But then I told him that he (Sarkodie) has worked on his craft so much that I don’t want to be compared because he’s a legend. But he (presenter) was still persisting”.

“We are all learning from Sarkodie. Sark is a very good rapper. Amerado is also growing in the industry. So I can never hate him,” he stated.
