Strongman Finally Breaks His Silence On Prosper – Nana Ama Issue
Ghana was on fire some 2-3 weeks ago when Strongman and Medikal took the whole nation on an exciting ride.
Strongman and Medikal had a fierce lyrical battle and several shots were thrown at each other in four different songs.
In Medikal’s second reply to Strongman dubbed “The Last Burial”, he took a swipe at Strongman’s girlfriend Nana Ama.
According to Medikal, one guy by name Prosper fingered Nana Ama and didn’t even have $£* with her because her vayjay stunk.
Medikal went on to say in the same song that after all this, Nana Ama was given just Ghc2000.
Social media went haywire after this sudden revelation and Nana Ama was severely mocked and trolled due to that.
Strongman has reacted for the very first time concerning this issue and he said they aren’t aware of any guy with that name.
“Nana Ama and I have no knowledge of this guy and there is no truth in what Medikal said. She is my girlfriend and I know her very well. I know how she is.” Strongman stated in an interview with Delay.
The rapper indicated that he can bet with his life and even swear that Nana Ama can never do a thing like that.
“If she had a bad smell down there, then I would have believed to an extent that the Prosper thing was true. But since she is very okay down there, there is no way the Prosper issue would be true”
Strongman and Nana Ama have been dating for close to 4 years now and Strongman also disclosed that for sure Nana Ama is his wife!
