Sarkodie crowned best and fatest lyricist in Ghana

Waw, what an evolution” is what most spectators said after seeing Sarkodie perform at JOY 99.7’s annual Old schools reunion recently held in the capital (Accra-Ghana) where he was officially crowned best and fastest lyricist after most radio and television stations were contemplating on a viable contender to his title.

Though he was the hottest artiste on the bill, it was very relevant for the media to originally prove him as the real revelation of the highly ranked Hip-life industry through competition and stage performance.

Most people asked questions like,” where has Sarkodie been hiding?”,” why did Dr. Duncan (Adom 106.3 FM) take long years to groom him?”, “Is Twista faster than Sarkodie?”, ”when is his album coming out?”,” why does he dress so simple and decent?” and lot more after being transitioned from King of underground (battle) Hiplife to best and fastest lyricist in Ghana.

Already, the West African populace has crowned him king of underground mixtapes after he killed DJ Khaled’s “I’m so hood” - (gemifo) and Rick Ross’ “Hustler” - (Tema hustla) beats.

Being aware of the entity with the fastest speed (light), he shares the view of being faster than light with words through constant practice since the already crowned fastest rapper’s eviction is not a challenge to him. He expressed the need to rap fast as a product of making more points of an issue and sending a complete picture of the said topic in few minutes to build a complete but relevant masterpiece.

Sarkodie is a well-known Computer whizz  in Tema (industrial city of Ghana-centre of the world) and specializes in system software and applications though he’s got passion for making nature visually impressive (creative and fine arts). Being respectful but outspoken, intelligent but caring, calm but motivating, it was very predictable to be recognized as being very decent and disciplined in the global music industry.

Being highly motivated by Obrafuo’s “Pae Mu Ka” album, the greatest hiplife sensation is yet to release his first album in December 2008 though prospects already indicate his hit tracks like “push”, “Babe, “chat with you and listen are poised to grab foreign awards.

Though he is the first and only corporate musician in the world to have ever performed at an international high forum round table on aid effectiveness, he shares the view that globalization is everyone’s right to grab whiles discovery as an inbuilt potential. He never ends an interview without showing gratitude to his fans, family, friends and management Crew (DUNCWILLS ENTERTAINMENT) for completely molding him to be who he is today.
