SARKODIE TAUGHT ME NOT TO ALLOW FAME GET INTO MY HEAD OR CHANGE ME – Akwaboah Jnr

Gladstorm Kwabena Akwaboah Jnr, better known by his stage name Akwaboah Jnr, one of Ghana’s most popular highlife musicians, has praised Ghana’s most famous rapper Sarkodie for encouraging him to be himself and avoid doing things for attention.

In an interview with 3music with the Culture Daily Squad, the singer discussed several topics from songwriting, his Black Stars song ‘BRING BACK THE LOVE’, intellectual property to Sarkodie, Highlife, money, and metrics.

About when he was signed by Sarkodie and the significant change it made in his life, Akwaboah said “Yes! And you see and that’s the part people actually don’t get. It got to a point where people were like ‘Charley you go fit do this thing, why you dey under Sark? That guy is killing your vibe…’”

“…wherever Sark is, God bless him. He’s been a very great inspiration to me” he added.

He also disclosed the times he wanted to make uptempo songs, and also narrated how Sarkodie give him the lifetime advice of “…if you want to do this – the uptempo songs – it’s fine, I can help you. Do it! But when you go down, there’s nobody to pick you up…”

Sarkodie went on to shoot a video for him, ‘HYE ME BO’, after advising Akwaboah not to loose his identity or musical prowess.

He concluded by saying “…and that advice has been in my head till date, never to lose myself all in the name of trends…”
