Veteran Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has revealed that he believes Burna Boy winning the Grammy Awards was a win for the entire continent.
The rapper shared this is a new interview with veteran music journalist Adesope Olajide which was posted on Wednesday, the 30th of June 2021.
He explained that as Africans, we are only celebrated by countries and we should start seeing each other as one.
Sarkodie insisted that Burna Boy’s Grammy win only serves to open the door to everybody else. In his words;
The only problem we have now is that Africa is being split into countries. But if we see Burna as African, then these fights won’t happen. First and foremost, it’s for Africa. Burna took it and we just all have to celebrate and it opens the door for everybody else to be able to come through. I’m not gonna take out the fact that business-wise, there are things that we should be doing. And people always keep talking about when something works, like have you seen how this thing worked. Because that is what you’ve seen, there’s a possibility that could be working in a different way as well.
Burna Boy won the Grammy award early this year for his ‘Twice as Tall’ album and this has made Ghanaian music fans criticize their stars more including Sarkodie.
However, the rapper is now saying fans should not look at Burna’s win as-is for Nigeria alone, and the whole continent should be proud.
Sarkodie also recently claimed his latest award at the annual VGMAs with Collaboration of the Year for the song, ‘Happy Day’.
The rapper is also gearing up to release a new album.
