Michael Owusu Addo, well known in entertainment circles as Sarkodie, has revealed that when he first started rapping in Twi, many felt he was restricted.
In an interview with Nigerian radio station City 105.1 FM, rapper Sarkodie claimed that his talents were questioned because of the medium he chose to communicate.
“I started rapping in Twi, and people thought I was limited, yes! it is true to an extent, but people don’t understand it. It’s all about what you believe, and you must always hold on to that, and it’s all a matter of time, you will surely be there,” he said.
Meanwhile, he counseled aspiring artists to remain tenacious in their pursuit of their goals.
“Never give up on what you believe, you just need to be stubborn on your ideas and dreams, and you will surely get there,” he added.
This strategy employed by the rapper has resulted in a number of accomplishments in the music industry, as acknowledged by sound engineer Da Hammer.
The sound engineer asserted in a recent interview with Kingdom Plus FM that Sarkodie would have been successful even if he didn’t play music.
“Sarkodie is a different breed, he would have been successful even without music because his mindset is unique,” he praised the artiste.
