Call him Obidiponbidi the great and you will not be wrong because he vowed and has since redeemed his pledge by becoming a multiple award winner back to back in Ghana more also he said he was going to put the country high on the world’s map and that he kicked started in flying colors with his Azonto crooning which has traveled far and beyond and finally he came out tops a joint winner with Nigerian Wizkid in the same category.
Sarkodie was announced winner of the Best International Act (Africa) at the BET Awards in New York on Sunday 1, 2012 in a category that had Mokobe (Mali), Camp Mulla (Kenya), Ice Prince (Nigeria), and Lira (South Africa).
Since Sarkodie broke into the music scene, he has never gone below average with his punch lines on point, his rhymes and swag beautifully calculated with rib cracking anecdotes; the awards have also flocked in numbers courtesy his ability to tongue twist beating the time range whatsoever you set at him.
His Rapperholic concert a few months back was a sell-out both in Accra and Kumasi which left us all to come to love a line in one of his masterpiece that his fans got his back like body lotion.
Currently, Sarkodie is working on a new album (TMG – The Mind Game) with Jayso. The first single (Pizza & Burger) from the collaboration is set to hit Ghanaians in July. But before heading back home with his award, he will be joined by his fans in Canada as he will be touring the country.
This year’s BET Awards was held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Congratulations to you, son**
