Sarkodie as the stage name of Michael Addo has been one of the struggling artistes to hit the streets of Africa from nothing.
We tried to access why the famous singer is making it out and still keeping his reputation.
Unlike many musicians who had a break with a hit track, Sarkodie did not begin as such and perhaps that explains one of the core reasons of being sizeless in Ghana. Sarkodie started out as an underground artiste and made his way through the ranks of music. It was a very arduous task for him but I believe looking back, he shall be thankful and feel blessed for the experience he had to go through. Sark is indeed blessed.
Obidiponbidi, Ghana’s Hip Life giant is loved by many and hated by few. Many first heard about Sarkodie on Kasahare the popular rap show that was hosted by Dr. Duncan on Adom FM.
Since then, many Ghanaians have committed to supporting the BET Award Winning Rap ‘god.’ Sarkodie’s Twitter handle and Facebook account followers are made up of thousands of die-hard fans who do not tolerate any attempt to scandalize their superstar.
Sarkodie also returns this favor by consistently giving his fans good and quality music.
He at times does good tunes to his fans and tries to give “shout out” to some of them. Doubting his huge, loving and loyal fan base, get a copy of his album, Raperholic and Sarkology.
Whatever Sarkodie spits out generate millions and is always a hit. Feature him and you are sure, your music would be number one all musical charts. Yes, this is what distinguishes Sarkodiefrom the rest. His latest feature by Ofori Amponsah titled ‘Alewa’ and ‘Adiza’ by Symple are classic examples of the Sark magic.
A lot of celebrities have become redundant and blunt because of their public utterances or perceived associations minus Sark. He takes on anyone and anything he deems not right, yet we love him. Sarkodie can criticize and chastise the government, media, rap about social challenges and step on many toes yet we still love him.
The African Rap ‘god’ and the CEO of Sark Collections has built his legacy over the ears. All over Africa, you hear Sarkodie. In an interview with one of the best rappers in Nigeria, the artiste was asked about the GH-born rapper and he said,
“I’M A DAMN GOOD RAPPER, BUT SARKODIE IS A RAP ‘GOD’” His endorsement deals with various brands and companies is also one of the things that make him exceptional, the deals with Fanmilk, Tigo, Samsung are a few of many. He also has his collections of kicks, caps, slippers, jackets .
His fans also love him for his swag and actions when talking, walking and infront of camera.
