Critics recently accused Sarkodie, CEO of SarkCess Music, of propagating a hazardous habit that could have a negative impact on impressionable followers when images and videos of him holding or smoking a cigar were published.
It would seem that Camidoh has a different perspective.
He spoke while a guest on Lexis Bill’s drive-time show on Accra-based Joy FM.
When I see that, “that’s always a nice look,” he added.
Chuckling, he added, “It’s nice. It looks good. It looks papi-ish.”
The ‘Sugarcane’ hitmaker also indicated Sarkodie “also inspires me with his work ethics.”
Asked if he would “do a cigar-shoot sometime,” he answered, “Maybe, if my stylist wants me to, then I will do it.”
On whether he smokes or not, he shrugged, “No, I don’t smoke.”
He explained he would only use the cigar for props.
“[I’d have it] for props. Most people would do it for props. Even though they don’t smoke, they’d do it for props,” he went on.
“If the story that we’re trying to portray had to have me portray that then, I mean, this is what we’re here for so, we’d do it.”
The Ghanaian singer-songwriter’s latest song is titled ‘Kaba’ produced by Ugly & Tough.
