Sarkodie has been cited for “providing an amazing impact on the Ghanaian music business” in the list of the top 10 Best Artists in Africa for 2022.
The list, created by online publication Daily Music Roll, includes 10 enormously well-known African musicians who have had a significant influence on world music thanks to their distinctive and endearing musical characteristics.
Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania, Tiwa Savage from Nigeria, Tu Baba (2Face), Davido, Burna Boy, and Wizkid are included on the list. Youssou N’Dour from Senegal, DJ Black Cofee from South Africa, and Angelique Kidjo from Benin all made the list.
With his participation, Sarkodie becomes the only artist from Ghana to do so and the second time he has received a commendation from Daily Music Roll. He was ranked first among the Top 10 African Rappers in 2020 who, through their outstanding musicianship, had already established a standard in the hip-hop field and were enjoying a successful career.
Sarkodie, a talented Ghanaian rapper who is one of the most well-known rappers in Africa, has added a new dimension to rap and shown the genre’s supreme authority with his incredible rap compositions.
In 2009, this 36-year-old musician published Makye, his debut album. Additionally, he garnered favourable reviews for this record from critics across the continent. He received the Vodafone Ghana Music Award’s “Artiste of the Decade” honour. He is the inaugural Best International Flow Artist winner of the 2019 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
His goal is to rule the entire planet. “I always want to open doors to new places, new audiences, and new people who might be able to connect with my music. That desire never goes away.
His wish has been fulfilled during the past ten years as a result of perseverance, hustle, emotional storytelling, and an alluring flow that cuts over all linguistic boundaries. In my own tongue, I rap.
A brand-new joint concert titled “It’s About Time” featuring Sarkodie and the Ghanaian hip hop & hiplife combo R2Bees will take place at Palladium Times Square in New York City on July 30.
