Akon reveals more shocking secrets of how Sarkodie record signing deal happened

Dope and talented heavyweight Senegalese-born international music star, widely known as Akon, has finally revealed how his Konvict Music label signed Ghanaian rapper Michael Owusu Addo known in real life as Sarkodie.  

According to him, the contract deal was unsuccessful since things were different in African music at the time and the artiste (Sarkodie) wanted to go in another direction.

“Sarkodie was the first artist that we signed out of Ghana,” revealed Akon while on a Twitter Space.

“My brother, Babs actually was dealing with him on a day to day basis, but at the time it was one of those situations where when you signed African artists, you really didn’t have full control over them.”

Akon noted that because they didn’t have full control of Sarkodie’s activities, they couldn’t connect with him very well.

“It was a piece of paper so it would be up to the artist to say okay, we have a contract. Let’s honor it,” he added.

The ‘Lonely’ hitmaker disclosed that his team had plans to make Sarkodie bigger and he could have been a global artiste then had he followed the plan – admitting this is an arguable statement.

“We had plans to make him so much bigger but I think at the time his agenda was more focusing on Ghana, which worked for him. And I think that it was a plan that worked,” Akon continued his narration during the on Twitter Space.

“I mean, it’s arguably or arguably not – but I know for sure if had he followed our plan, he would have been a global artist without a doubt.”

Akon added that when they realized they couldn’t work with Sarkodie, it didn’t stop them from linking him to the right people so that he could still become the star they wanted him (Sarkodie) to be.
