Legendary Ghanaian highlife musician, Nana Kwame Ampadu, has disclosed that there are many rappers in Ghana, but Sarkodie stands tall among all his peers.
According to Nana Ampadu, he personally clapped for Sarkodie the very day he witnessed his studio session.
Speaking to Kofi TV in an interview, the highlife legend indicated that he settled on Sarkodie for a collaboration due to his outstanding performance and influence within the music circles.
To him, Sarkodie’s level of intelligence when it comes to rap music beats his imagination and he witnessed that the very first day they had their studio session.
“The moment he stepped into the studio, I told him I have left some vacuum in the song for him to fill with his own lyrics. To my surprise, after listening to the song in minutes interval he was able to deliver on it and I enjoyed it with accompanying clap by myself,” Nana Ampadu said in an interview.
The veteran musician in his conversation added that he recorded two songs with Ghana’s greatest contemporary artiste but because of some sickness, releasing them delayed.
But then, his music enthusiasts will get to listen to the masterpiece between Sarkodie and himself very soon.
Nana Ampadu in the interview narrated how his ‘Agatha song’ became famous some years back.
The highlife musician who doubles as an evangelist, advised young men and women to be genuine when dealing with their loved ones, since true love has the tendency to heal sicknesses.

The legend told the host that the lyrics of the song 'Agatha' was a true love story he shared with a woman he loved so much that words were not enough to describe the depth of love he had for her.
The musician likened their relationship to that of Romeo and Juliet, adding that even though he loves his current wife, she doesn’t come close to what he shared with Agatha.
