Award-winning rapper, Sarkodie has advised up-and-coming artiste not to let language become a barrier in sending their message and music across to the world.
The rapper indicated that which they rap in but continue to express themselves in whatever language they feel comfortable with.
He said that he did not believe in waiting for the right moment to make a move. He insinuated that the time to shine was now and not later when all the conditions were perfect for you.
The “Azonto Fiesta” hit maker captioned a video he posted on Instagram, “Just cos you don't understand what We saying ain't a good reason enough to not make it to your top 5 ... music is Soul!!! We from Africa and we def can do it better”.
The rapper who himself raps in native Ghanaian Twi language was criticized by many people who held the view that his language was going to limit his career only to Ghana.
However, the rapper has indicated that music is soul and had nothing to do with the parlance in which it was expressed.
The rapper has won many local and international awards with his songs even though the major language used was Twi.
Sarkodie is set to release his much anticipated “Highest” Album on September 8. The 19-track album features the likes of Jayso, Big Narstie, Victoria Kimani, Moelogo and Spoken Word artist Suli Breaks. The album also has artistes Korede Bello, Flavour, Jesse Jagz, Praiz and Yung L from Nigeria on board.
