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

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.
Managed by Duncwills Entertainment, Sarkodie has a soft

spot and immense passion for orphans and has made several donations through musical
performances intended to raise funds for needy children and other community projects as a

Sarkodie’s iconic and breath‐taking stage presence has enabled him to perform on platforms
with notable international acts including Chipmunk, T‐Pain, Trey Songz, Mavado ,Ludacris amongst

others. Having toured the U.S.A and U.K, Sarkodie’s hallmark is performance satisfaction and
a perfect delivery of thought‐provoking lyrics in his kind of music. As he gradually develops
into a million‐selling rapper with a distinctive musical signature, his famous claim of being the

“fastest rapper” is certainly worth considering. Sarkodie winning the 2012 BET Best
International Act: Africa and also being featured on the 2012 BET HIPHOP Awards Cypher further solidifies him as one of the best rappers in Africa to ever come out of Ghana.
