Sarkodie is a great artiste there is no doubt about that. Mention Five best African rappers and you will find Sarkodie’s name swimming within the five. He has been a one time BET award winner. From 2008 to 2016 Sarkodie has been relevant in the Ghanaian music industry.
Winning the best international act would have been very easy if we were still in the time period between 2008 and 2017 because that was the time period for which Sarkodie was most relevant. After 2017 making a hit song became an issue for one of the all time Best rapper in Ghana. Between 2008 to 2017 sarkodie usually had a minimum of 4 awards at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Most of the other rappers sarkodie is competing are equally good as him but the problem now is most of them have been relevant this year and the previous with back to back hit. Sarkodie is competing with Nasty C (South Africa), Falz (Nigeria), Ghetts (U.K), Kalash (France), Tory Lanez (Canada) and Lil Sims (U.K) in the category . The category is a tough one for Sarkodie considering and comparing the relevance and hit song produced this year by some of the other artiste. Its not impossible to win tho so i wish Sarkodie all the best on his nomination
