“As a poet, I wouldn’t like to dilute my message, I want to keep it as it is.I would rather want six people to feel the music than to impress thousands so I will keep it how i want to keep it. The way you heard New guy and you loved it, that’s same way I do to Africa”
Sarkodie continued that Africa don’t speak Twi throughout.
“Some speak French, some speak English but then if they rate me as one of the top 5 best emcees of all time, that should tell you something.”
