Sarkodie is one of the upcoming rappers from Ghana. He has battled more than 15 MC’s on the award winning show called Kasahare Level on Adom FM and had K.O (knocked out) each of the MC’s which is judged by the listening public.
Sarkodie aka OBIDIBI, after a long stay in the underground, no doubt that he has become one of hiplife cultural magnet in recent times turning up in one of the most talk about Easter festive events, from Adom Fm Easter charity show to Kwahu MTN Easter bash to the Coca Cola Easter beach bash at the Labadi beach.
What makes his accomplishment truly amazing is that Sarkodie, at the heart of it all, 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 he likes to rep Ghana.
The charismatic rapper has blown our minds with his style and delivery in his lyrical content. You could sense his adventureness from the way he sounds because he says I don’t want to sound like this dude or that 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 notion as to what his song should sound like.
The studios are where he feels most comfortable. He has realized that you can’t worry about what u did last year or the troubles out there. He tells the ’Beat maker’ let just do it. "You have to get in to the mind frame where you’re not trying to out-do yourself and not trying to sound like someone else but yourself". The studio is where he finds his peace. He has worked with artistes like Castro, Reggie Zippy, Kwaw Kese, Quata and the list goes on and on, on his album coming soon like the hottest movie he is working with some of the great beat producers, who have produce great beat for some hot artiste on the block now.
He has worked with Hammer, Quick Action, K-Wa, Nana Fynn, 2 Toff and Jayso. He quotes, "I like to work with beat makers who don't just play the beats but create them."
