Somewhere 2010, a song titled “Ghanaian Lady” coined by Danso Abiam in collaboration with Sarkodie became the national tune. Every pub couldn’t go a day without playing the song in question.
As a result, Ghana television (GTV) used the song as sound track to sell their Miss eXcel plus pageantry show. Now, the main artiste behind the chart-topping song has stated categorically that he made rapper Sarkodie a household name in Ghana.
In an interview with Kumikasa.com, Danso Abiam insisted that his collaboration with Sarkodie on his “Ghanaian Lady” hit song made Sarkodie popular till date.
“It’s good to return favours because gratitude they say remains the best attitude. I must say Sarkodie really helped me to get some mileage after our collabo release, but I think my “Ghanaian Lady” song also made Sarkodie popular. Sarkodie became popular to the extent that people thought he owns the song. Promoters started booking Sarkodie for gigs because of my song. Sarkodie performed with my song to the extent I was stoned after performing at a show which they were expecting Sarkodie to perform the song”, Danso Abiam revealed.
When quizzed about his recent relationship with Sarkodie, Danso Abiam posited that;
“Nothing has changed. Whatever the relationship was before is still the same now, the only problem is that he (Sarkodie) finds it difficult to book appointment with me because of his busy schedules” adding, they are still brothers and Ghanaians should expect another big collaboration.
