Sarkodie’s name will forever be in the history books when it comes to music in Ghana and his win at the BET Hip Hop Awards in the Best International Flow category proves why he’s seen as one of African best.
At the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards, when Sarkodie mounted the stage to pick up his award, Ghbase.com observed that he also used that opportunity to promote Ghana and created a good impression in the minds of all those present there.
After giving thanks to God for how far he’s come in the music industry, he asked those present, who were predominantly Black Americans to come back home to Africa since its the Year of Return but then asked them to make Ghana their choice when deciding on which African country to come to.
“When you’re coming to Africa, choose Ghana” — the powerful speech according to Socrate Sarfo, Director of Creative Arts Council, earned Sarkodie Year of Return ambassadorial honour.
“In the first place Sarkodie was a Tourism Ambassador, and following his comment made on the BET platform relating to the Year of Return, GTA thought it wise to use him in this direction,” Socrate Sarfo told Sammy Flex in the studios of Zylofon FM.
The Creative Arts Council Director further stated: “Sarkodie was given a citation but that doesn’t mean he is the only person that the industry recognizes and dealing with, there are others that will follow. They will also play other role.
