M.anifest has admitted that his beef or ‘philosophical differences’ as he calls it with fellow rapper, Sarkodie helped give him more visibility than he had before, Livefmonline.com reports.

During an interview on Starr FM, he agreed with public assertions that his recent lyrical warfare with Sark gave him some mileage in the Ghanaian music industry.

“Of course. People enjoy this sense of rivalry, and the media feeds on it, social media feeds on it etc. It’s natural but everyday people are trying some gimmicks to get your attention but if it’s sincere or music or based on what people do. People know me for music and lyrics,” he said.

“And so for me I was in my corner somewhere finishing my album… as to the outcome. Yes, sure. Rivalries cause attention. Of course but people act as if my career began there. At the time all that was going on, I was actually somewhere performing and been doing this. I’m not a new or young artiste.”

Months ago, the two acts took shots at each other through their music: M.anifest rapping ‘what’s a king to a godmc?’ an apparent dig at Sarkodie, who calls himself a king of rap. Sarkodie also replied on the song ‘Kanta’ calling M.anifest a ‘bitch’ and other derogatory words.

M.anifest launched a new new album "Nowhere Cool" last week at the Jaguar Showroom at Airport.

The 14-track album features Worlasi, Cina, Dex Kwasi, Paapa, Dark Suburb, Tumi Molekane, Brymo, Nomisupasta and Ama Ata Aidoo.
