BET award winner, Michael Owusu Addo, known in showbiz as Sarkodie has revealed Ghanaian Hip-hop artiste, Strongman Burner known in real life as Osei Kwaku Vincent tops the ladder if he steps aside in the music industry.
According to him, the artiste signed on his Sarkcess record label stands tall when it comes to logical rap delivery.
Asked why he believes Strongman deserves the praises he is showering on him, Sarkodie said ‘Strongman has the timing, delivery and the soul. That’s why I took him on my label.’
He added that Strongman’s style of rap, lyrics and appropriate timing with regards to beats gets to his soul; a talent he believes no artiste has been able to demonstrate to him yet.
“On the real, I would say strongman. I think it’s been a while since I heard an artiste like that. Not because he is with me. When we were coming, it was very raw. I had no friend who was rapping. Strongman has the timing, delivery and the soul. That’s why I took him, he gets to me. He makes me laugh. He gets to me in all directions…,” Sarkodie said on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.
The rapper, who claims he stands for the truth, further urged his fans to believe in what they do to be successful in life.
“Finding the truth is very hard and that means knowing what you stand for. You shouldn’t let anyone come in between that. The truth I stand for is sharing my story with people….”
He continued that, “You need to stand for it and be stubborn. The greatest people celebrated stood for one thing they believed in. Being nervous is part of it but be determined and if you have that you can do whatever…” he said.
Sarkodie will be holding the 5th edition of his annual Rapperholic Concert at the Accra International Conference Centre on 25th December 2017.
