The 2017 edition of Sarkodie’s Rapperholic Concert was officially launched in a brief ceremony at the Multichoice head office in Accra.
The fifth year running, the show is slated for the Accra International Conference Centre on Christmas Day. It is a collaboration between Sarkodie’s SarkCess Music, and A Team Productions.
While organisers are tight-lipped about supporting acts on the night, they have confirmed UK-based band Compozers on the night. As is characteristic of past editions, an extensive array of both local and international acts is to be expected.
Sarkodie currently on a media tour to promote the Rapperholic Concert. In an interview with Sammy Forson on Livefm, Sarkodie stated that, Shatta Wale who has been a long time friend has charged him GH¢00.000 just to perform at the Rapperholic Concert.
“Shatta charged me 200k to perform on the show. I have been able to get 100k plus and by Sunday I will make it up to the 200k,” he said.
Multiple-award-winning act, Sarkodie is CEO of his independent imprint SarkCess Music, which is also home to singer Akwaboah, and fellow rap act Strongman. Sark also revealed that, Singer Akwaboah is yet to release a new album called “Matters Of The Heart” under the SarkCess label.
