Rapper, Strongman, has kicked against calls for a rap battle between him and hiplife artiste, Yaa Pono also known as Ponobiom.
According to the rapper, he has so much respect for Yaa Pono that he does not think it will be appropriate to face off with him.
Earlier this month, fans of both rappers took to social media to call for a rap battle between them.
While it is unclear why they would make such a call, both rappers have remained mute on the issue.
Reacting to the calls, Strongman told MzGee via Skype interview on TV3’s New Day that it won’t happen.
“Yaa Pono is like a godfather to me so there wouldn’t be any battle of the sought. I knew Yaa Pono two years before I even got to meet Sarkodie,” the rapper revealed.
According to Strongman, he has a very healthy relationship with Yaa Pono and they talk a lot.
“This game, respect is very necessary so for me I respect a whole lot of people in this game that is why when someone comes to disrespect me, I feel bad,” Strongman said.
The rapper added that “I respect people who came before me…I will only choose to reply a beef in case someone throws a shot at me.”
While he respects people, Strongman stressed that he was “not afraid of any MC (rapper) in Ghana.”
