Michael Owusu Addo aka Sarkodie, Ghana’s most decorated rapper, has stated that winning a Grammy Award will be one of the most memorable events of his life, as well as his greatest achievement.
The Grammy Award, or just Grammy, is an award presented by the Recording Academy to recognize achievement in the music industry.
The trophy depicts a gilded gramophone. The Grammys are the first of the Big Three networks’ major music awards held annually.
“It is going to be the icing on the cake of my career. That’s the highest point of the career of an artist and that’s what they aim for”. He said in the interview.
In other developments, Sarkodie feels that his rise to become one of the finest rappers alive is due to his hard work and talent, rather than just to Ghanaians’ support.
According to the multiple BET Award-winning rapper, he would not dismiss Ghanaians’ support, but he feels he earned his popularity through hard work. In an interview with One Play Africa, he stated these things.
Sarkodie’s career might have came to a premature end if he had given heed to the naysayers who most of the time attempt to come at him, despite the fact that he has remained relevant in the music world for over a decade.
The ‘Rollies and Cigars‘ singer went on to say that most of his early colleagues were unable to manage the strain, which is why their separate musical careers came to an early end.
When people say it is Ghanaians who made you who you are, I don’t deny it. Funnily enough, I wouldn’t have quit either.
I do this not because i get all the support. There are a lot of people who do not support me or like what I do. When Ghanaians say they have been supporting for 10 years, it is not.
Sarkodie, on the other hand, claimed that he has taught himself to be his own motivator and does not rely on the energy that his alleged followers emit.
