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 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 by droping one 2 of the hottest mixtape in ghana right now,gymifo and the new mixtape,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 Labardi 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 Michea lOwusu 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 adventurousness from the way he sounds cos he says i dont 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 is where i feel most comfortable.i realized you cant worry about what u did last year or the troubles out there.I tell the ‘Beat maker’ let just do it You have to to get in to the mind frame where you’re not tryin to out-do yourself and not trying to sound like someone else but yourself.
The studio is where i find my peace.He have worked with artistes like Castro,Reggie Zippy,Kwaw Kese,Quarta ,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 great beat producers , who have produce great beats like Q beats,quqick action ,Jayso. He quotes:i like to work with beat makers who don’t just play the beats but create them.
Keep ya ears on da streets u will hear it 1tyme for ur mind.
