Sarkodie Reveals He Didn’t Dash Mark Okraku Mantey 500 Pounds; Here Is What Happened



KUBILIVE Readers, perhaps you heard or read somewhere that Sarkodie has gifted renowned music mogul, Mark Okraku Mantey, 500 pounds – GHC 3,600 from a stingy person like Sarkodie!

Well, we all felt Sark was finally getting away with the stingy tag and making way for some act of generosity after Mark’s words were twinned by some Sark-lovers.

KUBILIVE has finally learned the truth behind the 500 pounds gift.

Apparently, Mark Okraku Mantey contributed to Sarkodie’s “Party N Bullshit” which was one of the hit singles off the Black Love Album, as a producer. It is for this reason that Mark got his cut from the proceeds from the hit jam.

According to the rapper, “the system paid” Mark, not him, he “just had to make sure who ever contributed gets their share”, simply put, the cash captured on numerous blogs as a gift from Sarkodie to Mark Okraku Mantey, was rather money paid for work done!

Sark said, “Erm the system paid not me I just had to make sure who ever contributed gets their share . If he’s in the system ( which I’m guessing he is ) , he will def get paid”, whiles reacting to one report that claimed he had gifted Okraku the cash.

‘My DMs Are Flooded’ : Rapper, Cardi B Says Following Split From Husband Offest



Cardi B has revealed she’s been receiving a lot of messages online following her split from estranged husband, Offset.

The Grammy-winning rapper, 27, opened up about the current state of her love life on her OnlyFans page on Wednesday.

‘I could date any man I want … my DMs are flooded,’ said the WAP crooner, who filed for a divorce from the Migos rapper earlier this month in Atlanta, saying the union was ‘irretrievably broken.’

In her filing in Fulton County Courthouse, Cardi B said that there were ‘no prospects for a reconciliation’ in the marriage, which began in 2017.

On the possibility of going into another relationship, the rapper whose name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar said she is only focused on her business.

‘I don’t actually want to date nobody – I’m so focused on my business that it’s crazy,’ she said.

The mother of one also reiterated that the choice to split from Offset was hers before disclosing that there is no bad blood between them.

‘You cannot hurt my feelings trying to throw the divorce in my face because, at the end of the day, I decided I wanted to leave,’ she said. ‘I didn’t wait until he cheated on me again. I didn’t wait [for] another controversy with him being involved. I decided to leave.

‘If I wanted to stay, I could have stayed. I decided to leave.’

‘I don’t have a bad relationship with my baby father. At all,’ she said. ‘I don’t have no hatred towards him. And I don’t wish him anything bad and I know that he feels the same way about me.’
