Decorated Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo, famed as Sarkodie, has given massive props to young rapper Amerado Burner over similarities in their rap style.
While speaking in an interview with UK's Tim Westwood, Sarkodie said he realized that Amerado's energy and rap style were similar to his.
Tim Westwood added that when Amerado gave a freestyle on his radio show, he covered his eyes and said he could hear Sarkodie.
In explaining the similarity, Sarkodie indicated that Amerado was weaned off the batch of rappers who saw his (Sark) rise.

The Highest rapper added that many of the young rappers of that time looked up to him as their role model therefore it was not surprising that they were emulating his rap style as well.
"Amerado has that energy. Amerado I think was cut off the cloth of when I came in. So there was a whole generation of artistes that were taking after I came in as a freestyle rapper. So it built like a whole generation", Sarkodie noted.
This comes off the current rap beef going on between Amerado and Obibini which has got many Ghanaians excited.
Some people are equally excited and tense over the beef because both rappers are known to be heavy hitters and master wordsmiths.
