BIOGRAPHY

As a trend setting and inventive rapper, Sarkodie began his instrumental career as an underdog rapper‐ who through years of maturity has earned a novelty in the rap game in Ghana and beyond.

Born as Michael Kwesi Owusu Addo and raised in the infamous Tema neighborhood, Sarkodie is a Ghanaian top notch and award‐winning rapper with just three (3) albums to his credit, yet has entrenched his impervious personality in the annals of the music industry as the most sought after. Sarkodie started rap at the age of 4 with a profound dream of changing the music game and making his presence felt worldwide in  the coming years.

He finally rose to mainstream fame in 2008 after turning down a job offer from an advertising company to fully take up music as a professional career. In 2010, he had several collaborations and earned numerous accolades and nominations including 5 major awards at the 2010 Ghana Music Awards with his debut album, Makye and other epochal international awards. He was also part of the historic Ghana cypher that appeared on the international airing of the 2010 BET Hip‐Hop Awards.

Breaking the jinx, Sarkodie’s latest, hot‐selling Rapperholic album bagged 12 glorious nominations in the 2012 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

On April 14, 2012 Sarkodie made history when he was crowned the Artist of the Year for the second time, as well as winning the award for Most Popular Song of the Year for his hit song You Go Kill Me and the Best Rapper of the Year for another second time.

Sarkodie, was also nominated for the 2010 MTV Africa Awards, MAMAS. Sarkodie was nominated in the best Anglophone category alongside Wande Coal of Nigeria, Daddy Owen of Kenya and Big Nuz of South Africa. The nominees for the 2010 MTV Africa Music Awards in partnership with Zain were shortlisted by MAMA Academy, made up of a group of music industry experts and taste makers from across the African continent. Sarkodie also won “Best Collaboration of The Year” award with the video of his song “Lay Away” which features Sway from UK at the SOUND CITY MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS 2010 in Nigeria.
