Ghana is in the news again for all the good reasons as the fastest lyricist, Michael Owusu a.k.a. Sarkodie has been nominated at the 2012 African Entertainment Awards of Canada. The ‘King of Azonto’, is flying the name of the country aloft with his winning the nomination of Best Concert, a feat last won by Nigeria’s 2Face Innocent Idibia.
Just a forth night ago, Obidiponbidi was a co-winner with his Nigerian counterpart, Wizkid, at the BET Awards for Best International Act-Africa.
