Ghanaian celebrated rapper known in real life as Michael Owusu Addo, with his showbiz name Sarkodie, has once again made a shocking revelation about his personal life after getting all the fame in the Music Industry.
Speaking in an exclusive interview in the first episode of the 4packed series of the Bold Convo on Oneplay Africa, Ghanaian iconic Rapper reveals some of the downsides of “being Sarkodie.”
When asked by the host how he is able to cope with fame, Sarkodie revealed that he has had to build a certain personality that fits the Sarkodie people perceive him to be away from his real self, Michael Owusu Addo.
“I am far from what fame comes along with because I am a very regular person. Personally, I am trying to control it. I wish I could be Michael without the fame and still be able to do the music and get the impact” he emphasized.
He continued, ” I wish am still Michael to enjoy all my basic life with family and friends, in which i have difficult times to have that because of the fame”.
When asked by the host, Tilly Akua Nipaa, about his constant battles from switching between his alter ego and his true self, Sarkodie responded that:
“Once in a while, I let loose of me been Michael. I don’t try to be Sarkodie 24/7 and I think I have been in this way for a while that has become the new reality for me. Once in a while, you catch the “Michael” creeping into it. Just been regular can also bring you problems. Sometimes I sit in conversations that I wished I could contribute, but you are scared and someone might record what you are saying” he stressed.
However, he did not hesitate in appreciating some of the goodies that comes with being a celebrity.
Sarkodie has been constantly been criticised by most fans both home and abroad on how he relate to most people who find it hard to relate with them.
