It’s very easy to blow in Ghana as a musician after all there’s no definite plan on what contributes to hit songs. Thus, getting a hit song is somehow attributed to chance citing Patapaa’s infamous “One Corner” vibe as a case study.
But after getting the hit song which is largely dependant on chance, sustainability becomes the next hurdle to cross if you’re a musician. Simply put, to stay relevant after the hit song becomes the biggest stumbling block.
So, musicians who have managed to stay relevant for decades deserve an applause for that feat requires a lot of sacrifice as in the case of rapper Sarkodie according to Kakra Kontonkyi. In the voice of Kakra Kontonkyi in a comprehensive interview with FanteQuoo of Inside Prime Page Tv, Sarkodie has really shaped the Ghana rap after taken over from the veterans.
Kakra Kontonkyi who’s well-known for the hit song “Nwom No” somewhere 2002 lauded the SarkCess Music CEO for continuing the legacy left behind by the veteran rappers including himself. Kakra in the interview voiced that;
“Sarkodie stands tall taking into consideration all the contemporary rappers. He doesn’t show off like other artistes for all our material possessions are all vanity. In the case of Sarkodie, his choice of lyrics over the years have positive impact comparably to his peers”.
Besides, Kakraka Kontonkyi born Francis Atta Yeboah who was the icing on the cake in Ghana music in the 2000s hinted that he’s looking forward to remixing his biggest song – Nwom No – with King Promise.
