Sarkodie’s tweet did not go well with the large following of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) as majority of them have launched numerous attacks on the rapper.

Nobody can dispute the fact that Sarkodie has a large following or fanbase behind his back, SarkNative, Sarknation, Sark Addicts, SarkNationWorld, Team Sarkcess and Team Sarkodie are just few of the numerous sections of fans following Sarkodie.
Some social media fanatics believes that NDC are scared that what Sarkodie said may affect them in 2020 election. But some NDC people believe Sarkodie disrespected their National Communication Officer,Sammy Gyamfi. Sarkodie in the post ordered Sammy Gyamfi to immediately retract and delete that comment. Sammy Gyamfi is yet to delete that comment but it seems many or majority of NDC gurus are very annoyed about sarkodie tweet. Some NDC loyal sympathizers are even telling him that in 2016 and 2015 he released many songs including inflation , the masses and Dumsor which some people believe it was against the then NDC government led by John Dramani Mahama.
