Black Entertainment Television (BET) Best International Flow Act, Michael Owusu Addo popularly known as Sarkodie has revealed that he was not in good terms with Theophilus Tagoe aka ‘Castro under Fire’ during the making of his hit ‘Adonai’ song, yet he set his differences aside to assist him with that spectacular piece.

In a live Instagram broadcast with the legendary music producer, Jay Q in eulogizing music icon Castro, monitored by MyNewsGh.com, rapper Sarkodie revealed that Theophilus Tagoe has been one of the key musicians in the music industry who held him down from his underground days to his rise to fame.

Sarkodie indicated that, Castro’s humility has been unparalleled as he used to drive him around town, buy him goodies and provide support to him as an elder brother although Castro was then a household name in the Ghanaian music industry.

Sarkodie explained that he declined performing with Castro on a UK-based rapper ‘Chipmunk’ show that had been organized in Ghana of which he (Sarkodie) was billed as a surprise artist. He continued that although he told the celebrated icon that such a move will defeat his purpose of he being on the show, Castro took offense without his knowledge and avoided him for weeks which was unlike him.

“If you have studied Castro, if he likes you, he doesn’t mind, whatever he needs to do for you, he will do it without hesitation. So the next time we linked up was during the making of this masterpiece, ‘Adonai’ and when he came to the studio and I told him about the song and how I would like him to sing the chorus for me, Castro without hesitation hopped on it.

It was after the recording that he told him in his car of how pained he was on what I did to him but I apologized and he forgot about it. He wasn’t someone who held on to grudges so for him to be pained indicated that our relationship meant a great deal to him.

Jay, one thing Castro used to say to me every night was that I shouldn’t have the right to judge people when they are making it. Some people are just blessed and you can’t control the thrust of greatness upon them. He took me under his wings. We did the first song together ‘Mfonyin’. From then, he looked out for me.

The guy was so genuine and so real. I think the whole stardom life, he wasn’t cut out for it. Some of us would not do it but Castro wouldn’t mind taking a taxi to come see me when his car develops a fault.

I think Adonai blew to a certain extent before our brother disappeared but the height that Adonai is right now, I don’t think he felt it before whatever happened and I wish that certain stages that I’ve been on, it would have been the two of us performing together. Adonai to me if I should say is the biggest Ghanaian music. We are yet to beat it and a big shout out to Castro for blessing me with that particular song,” an emotional Sarkodie told Jay Q.

Disappearance of Castro

Singer Castro and a female companion of his disappeared during a Jet Ski cruise said to have been organized by former Ghana Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan on July 6, 2014 on the Volta River.

Some legal practitioners have argued that the hiplife Musician will be declared legally dead next year as enshrined in Ghana’s Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33, which posits that a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.

Entertainment icons like, Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata, D-Black, Captain Planet, Pope Skinny, Abeiku Santana, Sarkodie, MzBel and a host of others eulogized Castro on his 38th birthday in a live Instagram stream on May 3, 2020 organized by Jay Q in commemoration of his contributions to the Ghanaian entertainment industry.
