Sarkodie became a laughing stock on social media for a word he used in his recent song, Kanta. Obidi in the diss song said “I’ll help you for free but ɛfiri nnɛ korɔ no we [will] be working pro bono”.
According to a section of social media commentators, the rapper wrongly used “Pro Bono” in the song.They explained that the word “Pro Bono” means working for somebody without charging so it doesn’t make sense for Sarkodie to use it again after saying “I’ll help you for free but ɛfiri nnɛ korɔ no we [will] be working pro bono”.
Artiste manager Bull Dog has a different understanding of how Sarkodie used the word “Pro Bono” in the song. In a Facebook post, he wrote at length to explain to the world how Sarkodie used the word in the diss song directed as M.anifest.
“LISTEN DON’T HEAR_THERE’S A DIFFERENCE
So a lot of Ghanaians want to sweat the #RAPGOD over the use of the word pro bono.. Please for your information, when a word stands on its own, mostly it has an entire different meaning from when it’s put in context or frame of reference.
Sarkodie said in his verse and I quote “I WILL HELP YOU FOR FREE but FROM NOW WE WILL BE WORKING PRO BONO”.
Keywords: HELP and WORK
HELPING OUT FOR FREE is one thing and knowing the person can’t afford your WORK because they may be suffering, is another thing all together.
HELPING FOR FREE in this context meant, WILLINGLY, ONE’S OWN VOLITION or BY CHOICE.
PRO BONO WORK is done for clients who can’t afford to pay because they EARN A LOW INCOME, hence the one doing the WORK does it for public good because they MORALLY OWE IT THE PUBLIC to give back.
As in the case of CHARITY, it’s NOT FREE, its a MORAL OBLIGATION.
All the #RAPGOD meant was Manifest is suffering career wise and is willing to do charity for him.
For all who updated an commented that he was wrong PLEASE GO BACK and LISTEN to that line and come and apologize to the #RAPGOD and forever hold your peace. lol
NEXT TIME LISTEN TO THE #RAPGOD, DON’T HEAR HIM.
Manifest is a dope MC but SARKODIE UNTIL SARKO – DIES
