Listening to the lyrics of almost all the songs from the Ghanaian hip hop and hiplife recording artist from Tema, Michael Owusu Addo, known by his stage name Sarkodie, one cannot deny the fact that all was not rosy from his beginning.
He always drums it into the minds of his fans that, he went through tough times before getting to where he is today.
According to the one time BET award winner, at the grass roots of his career, organizers of event did not see the need to pay him cash, and instead they paid with t- shirts and toffees.
“I played many shows for many organizers and they always paid me with t-shirts and toffees.”
All this did not stop him from chasing his dream, believing in himself and putting in his best in whatever he finds doing.
“I still held on to the dream though at a point I nearly stopped rapping. I am not sure I would be here if I listened to people’s opinion.”
Sarkodie is often named as one of Africa’s greatest Hip hop artists. MTV ranked him number 6 on their list of the Hottest African MC’s in 2014.
In 2013, Lynx TV ranked him number 1 on their list of the “Top 10 Ghanaian Rappers Of All Time”.
In 2015, AfricaRanking.com ranked him number 3 on their list of the “Top 10 African Rappers Of 2015”. In the same year, Sarkodie was named by The Guardian as one of the top five hip hop acts on the African continent.
Video: ‘I Am Very Sorry For Calling You Born One Prostitute’ – Counsellor Lutterodt Apologises To Yvonne Nelson
Counsellor George Lutterodt, who has gained notoriety for emotionally abusing women on TV and radio platforms, not long ago described actress Yvonne Nelson as a “born-one, shameful ashawo” who has no iota of disgrace to shut up about her adulterous life of having a daughter out of wedlock.
The comment didn’t go down well with majority of Ghanaians, who claimed that the counsellor has crossed his boundaries with the opportunity he had on the TV platform. As a result, they called on the counselor to retract his derogatory statement used to describe the actress.
Lo and behold, Counselor Lutterodt for the first time has swallowed the bitter pill and has apologized for chastising Yvonne Nelson. Speaking to TV Africa’s Nikki Samonas, he said;
“To Yvonne Nelson, I say a very big sorry. The wording of the write-up, the conversation and video didn’t really match up, however since it has been said and has denigrated your brand, I sincerely apologize.’’
Regardless the self styled Counsellor posited that he has no personal grudge or whatsoever against the sensational actress. But then, his comments on the day were based on the issues being discussed.
