American based African richest award-winning musician, Akon has named Ghana’s biggest Internationally acclaimed music act. Sarkodie was the name he mentioned as the only musician in Ghana worthy of that title.
The Konvict Music boss made these statements during a conference he had at the Kimpinski hotel as part of his visit to Ghana for the year of return. Akon adds his voice to the many, who have already accorded the multiple BET award winner, Sarkodie that global honor.
He explained Sarkodie is the only Ghanaian music act who has his music dominant in the global music scene.
He further noted that he does not accord any such honor to any artist just because of how big the person’s name is. He looks at how dominant the person’s music is, globally and Sarkodie is the only Ghanaian who has reached that height.
He disclosed, ” That has been the toughest question I’m asked every country I go… I don’t know anyone, I just know a good song that reaches the top. The only one honestly from Ghana that has reached the top really is Sarkodie”
Furthermore, he affirmed that he actually signed Sarkodie onto his Konvict music record label, refuting claims that, the rapper lied about being signed onto the label.
