Basically, I pray, I fast and I have a good background; my family, they are religious. So I just have to do the work, that is, I go to the studio, I work hard and I know God will help me,” he stated.

He said with his new ‘Rapperholic’ album, he is very confident that he stands the chance of winning the award.
I know with my Azonto cribs and others, I stand the chance of winning. I hope that my fans will keep supporting me .They supported me in the first place .That is why Sarkodie was nominated. So I hope they will go to the next level by voting for me or by any means that they can to make Sarkodie win. It is going to be my fans, so I look up to them. They should help Sarkodie like they always do.”
