Sarkodie has spoken about his upcoming performance on the 020 Live stage with Ludacris, 4x4 and Naeto C.
Speaking from the US, Sarkodie and his manager have expressed their excitement at performing with fellow Vodafone Ghana Music Awards winners, 4x4 and his friend Naeto C.
“The atmosphere on stage will be electric when these musical heavy weights come together to ignite the Dome on 29 September,” a statement issued ahead of the concert and copied to the Ghana News Agency said. Kwame Yeboah has been working with the Ghanaian artistes to help them express themselves artistically.
Known for his music making genius with Ghanaian legends like Osibisa and Kojo Antwi, Kwame has also groomed musical talent for the mixed edition of Vodafone’s Icons which unearthed the group Black n’ Peach.
His intensive work with Black n’ Peach will also be showcased when they open for this year’s concert as part of their winning prize package. Sarkodie worked with Kwame Yeboah to produce his Rapperholic Christmas concert which many will agree was one of his best performances he has ever given.
His career has gone from strength to strength since then, winning awards in Ghana at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards and internationally at the BET Awards. He has had a phenomenal year, which could be why he seemed to be an obvious choice to perform on the 020 Live stage.
Since winning his award, Sarkodie has been busy building on his international recognition and promises to bring his new experience and swagger to his fans come 29 September at the Dome.
Speaking about his performance at the concert, Sarkodie’s manager could only reveal that the award winning performer’s set was going to be nothing short of ‘phenomenal’.
“Sarkodie hasn’t performed in Ghana since winning the BET award. In fact he hasn’t performed since the VGMAs so his fans can look forward to a refreshing performance from a re-defined artiste.” Fans of Ghana’s fastest rapper have already started pitting him against US rap legend Ludacris who is also billed to perform on the 020 stage.
