Sarkodie Brags to BBC: ‘I Am A God in Ghana | Just That Some People Can’t Appreciate My Excellence’
Sarkodie is a braggart—there’s no two ways about it.
And for many, he’s a local champion; his creative brilliance does not even go beyond the borders of Ghana.
However, Sarkodie says he is a rap God in Ghana, except that some of his own countrymen do not appreciate his creative excellence and therefore continue to sabotage his efforts.
In an interview with the BBC last night after his electrifying performance at London’s 02, Sarkodie told BBC’s correspondent-Jess Powell that, “what you’ve seen is not the total definition of me. I am a rap God and what I just displayed is a tiny bit of my excellence.”
Asked about the disparity between his claims and his international posture, Sarkodie who seems deluded than honest said; “in my country, a lot of them do not appreciate my excellence and would want to see me fall down. Remember, no prophet is accepted in his home town. This has curtailed my success outside my country.”
He continued; “the excellence I have exhibited here today stamps my reputation as Africa’s leading rapper, Ghana’s ever best.”
Sarkodie’s interview comes only a few days after he released a track in which he attacked certain key Ghanaian entertainment critics—sort of saying, they are part of a cohort, seeking to pull him down.
Interestingly, Sarkodie was recently given a humility award by Young Achievers, a social think-tank in Ghana.
