Without a doubt, Sarkodie born Michael Owusu Addo is the most prominent musician in Ghana currently. He keeps placing Ghana on the map and bringing more foreign eyes to Ghana’s music industry.
With his exceptional and phenomenal contribution, he has also been making and breaking his own records. Sarkodie holds the king title of Ghana’s music in the streaming space. He has over 130 local and international awards which have made him establish his feet in the Ghana music industry.
He has dominated Spotify and Apple Music streaming platforms with incredible numbers. On Ghana’s YouTube alone, he has set 3 records which are still unbroken.
First, Sarkodie is the only person who has the single most watched Ghanaian music video. His music video, “Adonai” has garnered over 87 million views and no artist has come closer to breaking that record. It must be noted that he has held this record back-to-back for years.
Second, he has accumulated over 266 million views making him the Ghanaian with the most views. This means that his music videos are highly enjoyed by Ghanaians. The second to him with the most views on YouTube is Shatta Wale with 244 million views.
Besides, Sarkodie who’s Tema based since registering his name on the lips of Ghanaians with “Baby” song in 2009 featuring Mugeez, the rapper has never flopped in the game for over 12 years and is still on.
Concluding from this and more, Ruthy, a highly-opinionated showbiz critic, has postulated that it’s high time Sarkodie considered setting up some kind of Rap University School in Tema where he will nurture and teach up-and-coming rappers as well as budding ones the real elements of rap so that can be consistent too.
