Rapper has denied feuding with Nigerian superstars Wizkid, , and Burna Boy.

In an interview with VoxAfrica, the Adonai hit-maker explained his goals, saying that his songs were not meant to look down on the Nigerian musicians.

He noted that the lyrics were just storytelling and references to how far he has been in the industry and not to disrespect the hard work of leading African artistes.

He added that if he wanted to throw jabs, his target would have been rappers, not singers.

“Wizkid, Burna Boy and Davido would never think I want to jab them because if I want to jab somebody, it has to be rappers. They are not rappers.

“I am just talking to rappers about how long I've been there and who else is best to use as reverence? Everybody knows Wizkid, Burna Boy, Black Sheriff, Asake and Davido.

“And it's true that I was in the industry before they all came in. It's just references to how long I've been there. It's not throwing jabs at anybody. These are incredible, amazing artists,” he said. 

Sarkodie dropped Brag on Friday, May 10, and the song created a huge buzz on . Brag is one of the songs on his upcoming The Championship EP scheduled for release on Friday, May 24.
