For the many that keenly followed the legendary radio programme ‘Kasahari Levels’ hosted by Dr. Duncan on Adom FM circa 2006, Sarkodie was one of the few rappers many tipped for success.
Lo and behold, Sarkodie didn’t fail those who tipped him for success since registering his mega presence in Ghana music industry with “Baby” vibe featuring Mugeez somewhere 2009. The artiste under scrutiny has been the biggest Ghana export, musically for the past decade.
So, it’s no surprise that he was bestowed with the Artiste of The Decade title at the 20th edition of Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs). Regardless, some music enthusiasts are of the view that Sarkodie’s relevancy is fast diminishing for obvious reasons.
Thus, Sarkodie Ghanaians know when he started full time music is not the same act. His energy, hits production among other capabilities Sarkodie used to have keep diminishing. As a result, he now rides on the new acts otherwise known as “underground rappers” to keep his name going according to some realest music enthusiasts.
Those with the above perception always cite Sarkodie’s “Trumpet” as well as “Biibi Ba” cypher to buttress their point. However, the SarkCess Music CEO in his recent performance at the VGMAs touched on that public perception and declared it null and void.
In Sarkodie’s intro to his actual performance, he said that; “Sɛ me hu obi na mepɛ sɛ me boa no nso a, yɛ se he’s only trying to overshadow him”. To wit, whenever I want to help push someone, they I’m only trying to overshadow him”.
