Ghana’s finest rapper, born Michael Owusu Addo popularly known on stage as Sarkodie has revealed that he doesn’t just jump on any song because he wants to be relevant in the music industry.
According to Sarkodie, if he receives a song from a colleague artiste, he goes through before because there are some songs you don’t have to waste time on them knowing surely that the song will never be a hit.
“You need to stand for something. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll be missing out. No amount of money will make me jump on certain songs even though I know they will blow. I have to feel it. If I don’t feel it…”
“M.O.G sends me like thousands of beats and I choose the ones that I like so if the fans are lucky and it turns out to be commercial, good for them but I don’t sit down and say I need a commercial song for them to jam to. If I hear a beat and it’s dope (I’ll go in). The tones in U Go Kill Me was something different that made me rap on it”
“I’ve never been that type of an artist. I just record music and if the beat is good, I jump. I’m not going to start singing like Davido and Mugeez. If I do a song that needs them, I’ll link them up” he said.
