Sarkodie - 10k

If anybody would do it, it would be none than Sarkodie. Our top rapper, Sarkodie seems to be moving mountains and doing his best to put Ghana on the map musically. Reggie Rockstone also got featured on CNN for inventing “Hiplife”, way to go!

This Saturday, Sarkodie performs in New York, at the legendary Apollo Theater and he’s taking a ton of African artistes with him, like Ice Prince, Obrafour, Pappy Kojo, Banky W etc..

The event is so big, it was featured in the New York Times, the biggest media house in USA. The title alone speak volumes. Hiplife, a Sound Imported From Ghana, Arrives on a New York Stage

The New York Times said this about the show:

The Apollo is really like a test in an exciting way for the Ghanaian artists to reach out to broader audiences and to enter into the American mainstream musical consciousness.
Renowned artistes who have performed at the Apollo Theatre include Michael Jackson among others. Congrats to Sarkodie once again for always taking the lead.
