Currently signed to DuncWills Entertainment and Konvict Music, Sarkodie is with no doubt the fastest rapper and the best twister in Ghana right now. He has battled more than 15 MC’s on the award wining show called Kasahare on Adom FM and had K.O (knocked out) each of the MC’s is judged by the listening public. Sarkodie aka Obidi, after a long stay in the underground,no doubt that he has become one of hiplife cultural magnet in recent times by dropping his debut album, Makye with several other hit singles and his long awaited Rapperholic album which is been predicted to bring some aliveness into Ghana Music. What makes his accomplishment truly amazing is that Sarkodie at the heart of it all is still just the shy calm dude who will cut you with his sharp lyrics that you will keep your head banging. True school hiplife,hip hop fans know however, that Sarkodie amazing story really begins and ends with music. Born Micheal Owusu and was raised in TM (Tema) but likes to rep Ghana. The charismatic rapper has blown our minds with his style and delivery in his lyrical content. You could sense his adventurousness from the way he sounds because he says he doesn’t want to sound like this dude or that dude but want to sound like myself. His goal is to let you enjoy what he is spiting out.
Ironically, the approach to his first album is to set aside all the movement in the hiplife industry and free himself of any pre-conceived notation as to what his song should sound like. The studio is where he feel most comfortable. He realizes that you can’t worry about what you did last year or the troubles out there. He tell the ’Beat-makers’ just do it You have to get into the mind frame where you’re not trying to out-do yourself and not try to sound like someone else but yourself. The studio is where he find my peace. He has worked with artistes like Castro, Reggie Zippy, Kwaw Kese, Quarta, Ayigbe Edem, Jayso and the list goes on and on. On his album coming soon like the hottest movie he is working with some of the greatest beat producers who have produce great beats like Q beats,Quick Action, Jayso. “I like to work with Beat-Makers who don’t just play the beats but create them,” Sarkodie stated. Keep your ears on the streets you will hear It’s One Time 4 ur Mind.
