One of Ghana’s sensational award-winning recording artist, Darryl Paa Kwesi Bannerman-Martin, known in showbiz circles as Joey B, has disclosed how Ghana’s finest rapper Sarkodie, helped him overcome depression.
According to Joey B, he went through serious emotional trauma in 2016 due to problems he had in his relationship.
Narrating how Sarkodie saved him, the musician who was speaking on Hitz FM said, “I sent “U x Me” to Sarkodie and he said it is a big song. And I was like, how? Because I wasn’t too serious with the song. Originally, Sark is on the song but at that time because of how I was feeling I just wanted to do it alone”.
“Sark is matured and a genuine person so I don’t know what he was thinking at the time, but he wasn’t mad I took him off the song, he didn’t react to it. He is the only person I vented when I was dejected,” Joey B stated.
Even though a lot of industry players have described the CEO of SarkCess music as conceited, Joel B believes Sarkodie is rather a private person.
“Sarkodie doesn’t talk too much so I told him everything I was going through, he knew everything that was happening to me,” he added.
Joey B won New Artiste of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards for his song ‘Tonga’ which featured Sarkodie in 2014.
The ‘Tonga’ song received massive airplay internationally and that brought Joey B into the limelight after his career kicked off in 2012, when he recorded his first mixtape at Skillions Records.
