Lord Sugar tweeted: “Question: Can @MarkRonson Mark Ronson play and instrument properly ?

“Or does he just like be on stage making a few noises suporting the real talent.”

Ronson appeared to make fun of a mistake in the tweet, replying: “Believe it or not, I can both play AND instrument. Me also write good.

“Let me know if you ever want to come to a show and hear some noise.”
