YEN.com.gh has sighted an old photo of rappers D-Black, Medikal, and Sarkodie, when they were not so popular.
The photo which was shared by D-Black, was taken at the time the three of them had started their music journey.
He also shared the photo to congratulate Sarkodie and Medikal on their hard work over the years on the occasion of May Day.
Sarkodie was captured looking like the real hustler he was in his brown T-shirt and bushy hair.
Medikal was seen in huge ‘camboo’ and he looked very, very unrecognisable.
One would need to take a second, and perhaps, third look at the photos to be convinced that indeed, they are Sarkodie, Medikal, and D-Black.
Please swipe using the arrow on the right to see the photo with Medikal:
According D-Black, the photo with Sarkodie was taken in 2010 when they were on a bus to perform in Tamale and Bolgatanga.
He narrated how they spent 24 hours on that journey to and fro, but how they were richly rewarded with a larger fanbase after those performances.
The next year after that journey, D-Black said he had his first nomination as Best African Act at the BET Awards.
Sarkodie also got nominated just the following year after D-Black, and this was a major boost to them as rising musicians then.
The photos have excited some fans who commented on them.
Zeek wrote that he was deeply touched by the photos and narration:

Esther noted that the race has not been easy:

Fred also congratulated D-Black for his dedication and commitment:

The three rappers are doing very and perhaps could be counted as part of the best in Ghana today.
