It has really been a busy period for renowned Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie since he started working on the release of his newest collection of songs – The Highest album.
From the New York ‘Da Highest’ concert to ‘Highest’ album launch, the SarkNation Boss stormed the West Hills Mall in Accra on Sunday, September 10 for the signing of the album which is his latest music release.
And just like the album launch which came off two days before [Friday, Sept. 8], the event drew a mammoth crowd of fans to Sarkodie’s side, as the Mall was filled to the brim with patrons numbering up to three thousand.
In addition to the teeming fans, the event was also honoured by very notable artistes such as DKB, Doctor Duncan, Dr. Pounds, Magnom, Medikal, Strongman, Article Wan, Kwasi Arthur, B4Bonah, Teephlow, among others.
