Sarkodie’s status as unarguably the best rapper in Ghana means fans and neutrals would like to relate to everything that embodies him as a celeb and a role model.
For this reason, this write-up highlights some keys aspect of Sarkodie’s personality we think you have no idea about. Perhaps you can add these basic facts to your knowledge as well.
#1. He is considered one of the major proponents of the Azonto genre and dance.
Sarkodie’s song U Go Kill Me ft fellow rapper E.L is often said to be the song that heralded the Azonto craze and thus, credited with the creation of the internationally recognized dance, although many Ghanaian pundits dispute this.

We won’t argue about this at all- it’s a fact that will soon be taught in schools LOL!

Name any rapper, past and present who’s better than Sarkodie in terms of lyrical prowess, commercial success and stagecraft. Of course, there’s no one!
