Sakordie’s reign as a pioneer of Ghanaian rap has been a long itme coming, and since ascending to widespread prominence, he has managed to remain a rapper’s rapper, while hitting new milestones in subsequent years. He recently picked up the inaugural award for Best International Flow at this year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards, and in October, he successfully pulled off his first headlining music festival in his home city, Tema. To celebrate the success of the latter event, Sarkodie has just released a new single, “Oofeetsɔ”, as well as a fitting music video.
Assisted by Ghanaian hiplife singer, Prince Bright, who sings the catchy hook, Sarkodie celebrates his rise from humble beginnings into becoming a symbol of hope for his community. Although his two verses are mostly delivered in his local language, Twi, his vibrant candour and the endearing music video help in conveying the upbeat tone of his lyrics. In the video for “Oofeetsɔ”, footage from the 3-day festival are spliced together, including awe-inspiring shots of performances taken from the concert finale.
