Popular Ghanaian wrapper, Michael Owusu Addo known as Sarkodie has challenged those who may be thinking that his present fame is just but for a moment.
The award-winning musician who has earned much weight following his latest Indigo 02 concert brags that he cannot be put out of the scene by anyone. He emphasized that he will continue to make it big in Ghana’s music industry until he decides not to.
He made these statements while speaking to the BBC at the O2 Arena in London. His words:
Today I want to challenge anybody who is still doubting that it’s going to be Sarkodie in the next 2 or 3 or 4, 5 years, ten, eleven until I choose not to.”
It is believed that Sarkodie may be saying all these in reaction to the perceived beef between him and some media personalities recently.
He recently released a diss song in which he sarcastically mentioned music producer Mark Okraku Mantey and thanked him for continuously criticizing him. Moreover, he never left out the host of Peace FM’s Entertainment Review, Kwasi Aboagye saying he didn’t need him to promote his music.
According to Starr Fm, Sarkodie told the BBC that his rise to fame was not by chance but by hard work,
I believe most rappers; because hiphop is based on ego; turn to fight the fact that people want to push you down and try and make you feel that you can’t be here tomorrow, like you’re hitting for today, this is your time by the next 2 years you [are] not going to make it.
And it begins to make you nervous, you believe in yourself but you kind of like get what they are saying in a way like you are not going to have this for long; but then I did not even come out to be just one of the artistes; I was the artist when I came out as Sarkodie,” he added.
