Sarkodie on the Bold Convo with Tilly Akua Nipaa has revealed how certain comments made by Ghanaians and the media affect him and other artists. This conversation is a build-up of the first episode where Sarkodie speaks about certain special moments in his career.
Sarkodie expressed that artists also go through hard times which makes it difficult to push out any material or be creative. He added that this even gets worse when they hear certain comments from people or on the radio. Adding that, had he not been strong, some comment would have broken him.
Sarkodie revealed that “In A Certain Year You Have Very Dark Year, And They Will Say Stuff That If You Not Strong It Can Break You Down”. However, Sarkodie said he is one that wouldn’t not quit regardless; majorly because he has a family to feed and has boundaries to break.
Commenting on how Ghanaians treat talents, Sarkodie gave a detailed breadkdown on the life cycle Ghanaians project on their artists. He said “They love you when they see that you have the potential, when you come in they are like oh we made you and now they are looking at you m oving you out of the way.”
He finally mentioned that he cannot complain about support from the industry because he gets supported as much as he supports others.
