Highest rapper Sarkodie has spoken on the controversial E-Levy policy set to be implemented by the Akufo Addo’s government.
According to him, even though the E-Levy and the payment of taxes are not bad things, it is difficult for people to accept because of the circumstances in Ghana.
While the debate about the tax lingers on, a fan of Sarkodie took to Twitter to ask the rapper about the E-Levy.
In his response, Sarkodie indicated that he does have a problem with paying taxes because he pays a lot in other countries and does not complain because he uses their avenues to make money and it is only right [to pay].
See tweet below:
I pay a lot of taxes outside and I don’t complain because I’m using avenues they made available to make 💰( it’s only right ) it’s not same here and that’s why we complain not because the “E Levy” is bad . When you broke, a harmless “good morning “ can sound like a tease https://t.co/7s25NqnbJN— Sarkodie (@sarkodie) February 8, 2022
Some fans also disagree with Sarkodie While Sarkodie’s tweet was not exactly in support of the E-Levy, many tweeps have assumed he is in support of the tax and have replied him.

Masa, be bold and talk truth to power… de e-levy itself doesn't fall into any categories of tax. Is it a VAT, income tax or gift tax or what? Also, does it fit into any of de principles of taxation? No, cos it's never going to be fair and equitable. It's just thievery.— Okodie3_Ba 🦅 (@FranEbb) February 9, 2022
