The long queues outside of the O2 from ‪7pm last night was already a good indication that Sarkodie Live was going to be a sell out show.

The atmosphere inside the auditorium at IndigO2 was energised as the crowd arrived unfashionably early for a concert tipped to be the best performance display by an African artist.

Fans were entertained by supporting acts; ABC Dancers, AfroB, Tione Wayne, NSG & Jaij hollands. The artists were very well selected and performed short well rehearsed sets to warm up for Sarkodies’ arrival on the stage.

Host & promoter, Abrantee beamed on stage throughout the night as the event coincided with his birthday. He was on top form presenting effortlessly, kept the crowd engaged with banter, and had the audience enthralled by his Kwame Koranteng designer suit.

Abrantee’s introduction of Sarkodie to the stage was synchronised with the highly anticipated appearance of the famous live band, The Compozers.

It was sharply evident how charismatic Sarkodie was as he engaged with the audience and thanked them before his live performance.

Most of Sarkodie’s verses were in his native language twi, but the delivery and execution combined with his bounce-flow was insane and epic throughout his 1hour 30-minute set.

Sarkodie gave a master class in rap by taking the old school approach to rocking the crowd. He avoided any gimmicks, razmataz or the usual MP3 PA’s from rap concerts. It was just him, his mic and great live music by the composers

The big surprise on the night was the unexpected appearance of FUSE ODG as he joined Sarkodie for his massive tune , ‘DOWN ON ONE’. The emergence of the UK star had the crowd frenzied, as Sarkodie ended on a triumphant note with his hit single Adonai.

It was an unbelievable display and certainly well planned and executed show by Sarkodie, his team Sarkcess Music, Abrantee, Akwabaa UK and the PR company DLA Worldwide.

Sarkodie is undoubtedly the most influential African rap stars; with a serious cult following, a huge fanbase and world class standard of music-he can easily and certainly will be one of the biggest African stars on the planet!
