Somewhere in the year 2016, Ghana’s most decorated rapper Sarkodie released a cypher titled “Trumpet”.
This “Trumpet” song instrumentation was produced by Fortune Dane and the track featured young rappers like TeePhlow, Medikal, Strongman, Koo Ntakra, Donzy Chaka and Pappy Kojo.
And as we speak, almost all of the artistes who were featured on the above-mentioned cypher have become recognized acts in the county and beyond.
Similarly, in the year 2018, Sarkodie again assembled 10 budding rappers on a cypher christened “Biibi Ba” just to give them the necessary exposure to excel in the game of Ghana music industry.
The artistes who were put on the track are; Lyrical Joe, Tulenkey, Kwame Dame (Frequency), Kofi Mole, ToyBoi, Yeyo, Amerado, 2Fyngers, OBKay and CJ Biggerman.
And to the best knowledge and enquiries made by Ruthy, a highly-opinionated showbiz critic, the 10 artistes featured on ‘Biibi Ba’ cypher have really disappointed Sarkodie as only 3 have made it – Amerado, Lyrical Joe and Mole are serious about music.
This Ruthy argues that it’s part of the reason why Sarkodie has not come up with a similar project since 2018 for when he gives them the exposure, most of the artistes fail to make full utilization of it.
