“I Sold Out Apollo Staduim Before Burna Boy” Sarkodie Wants To Set The Record Straight

Rapper Sarkodie is not about to let the world forget that Ghanaian music acts have been breaking records on international levels as well."I Sold Out Apollo Staduim Before Burna Boy" Sarkodie Wants To Set The Record StraightHe spoke up in reaction to BET’s narration that Burna Boy was the first African Act to sell out Apollo Stadium in New York City.

The rapper while speaking Day Break Hitz said Ghanaian acts should tell their own success stories else the world will forget their achievements on the global scene.

“We let go easily and tend to frustrate ourselves, we need to highlight our moments,” he said.

He also said that Ghanaians are also doing well internationally, having appeared on BET awards and recorded international hits. However, according to Sarkodie, some of their feats have been under-reported.

“We have done incredibly well but we still look out there for what other people are doing, I am not saying we should be comfortable but at least Ghanaians should just appreciate these moments, we have done things and still doing more,” the rapper told Andy Dosty.

Citing the Burna Boy example Sarkodie said;

” I remember when BET was posting Burna Boy selling out the Apollo. They said the first Afrobeat artiste to sell out the Apollo, you see it’s because we don’t hold on to it, I did it before him”.

Continuing,  he said, “there are a lot of things we have done before everybody but we have left them unsaid, Fuse ODG has done a lot but we just want to skip look at what someone is doing and highlighting”.
