Sarkodie’s father, Mr.Augustine Owusu Addo has revealed why he chose the name Michael as the English name for his son.

Some parents name their kids after some family relatives or a friend or even some role models or people that they simply admire.

In a short interview with Max24 TV at 2020 Rapperholic, Mr. Owusu Addo disclosed that he named his son Micheal because he was a very big fan of the late American pop star, Micheal Jackson.

“As you know, he is called Michael Owusu Addo. I was a very big fan of Michael Jackson so that’s how come I named him Michael. I didn’t know he was going to be great in music as he is now,” he told the host.
Mr. Owusu added that he didn’t know Sarkodie was going to be a musician and a big one at that and now he’s proud of how far he’s come in the music space.

“When he started, I actually asked him and he said it was just like a hobby but I realized he went on with it, and now, here he is. I am very happy and I pray he does even better.”

When asked about his favorite song from his son, he mentioned “Brighter Day” which featured Obrafour.
