Sarkodie is Ghana’s most prominent export on the music scene, and this high-profile collaboration will serve as a drive for the music community in Ghana.
Not too long ago, the Ghana music front came under heavy criticism from colleague Shatta Wale for not measuring up and standing up to par with their Nigerian counterpart in terms of high-profile collaborations and international recognition by the global music community.
This news will likely serve as a cushion for the blow Shatta dealt his Ghanaian community, and many Ghanaian artists will be applauding this Sark news and hoping for more.
