Sarkodie is Ghana’s biggest music export – Richie

Chief Executive Officer of Lynx Entertainment, Richie Mensah has said that apart from Osibisa, Sarkodie is Ghana’s biggest music export.He made this known at the launch of the Eastern Music Awards.The singer said “ Apart from Osibisa,sarkodie has broken barriers internationally. There is no country in Africa where people don’t know sarkodie.”He, however, mentioned that Sarkodie cannot be compared to Nigeria’s Wizkid and Davido because “If you say mention 10 African artistes and Sarkodie’s name is always part but the reason Sarkodie is not on the same level as Wizkid or Davido is that he is a rapper”.He explained further that “Singing is able to go further than rap based on language limitations. When someone sings in Twi, somebody in Kenya can sing melody even if they don’t understand the language. But when somebody is rapping in Twi and goes to Kenya, they cannot rap along because of the words”.
