#SARKODIE LIVE: He came and He conquered!

Posted on March 14, 2016 with 0 Comments

It was a great show, well organise and fantastic – George Ruddock (Managing Director – The voice)

Two stars for the prize of one at the O2 – (Andy Moore Guardian)

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.

Sarkodie-8

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-13

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!

Sarkodie’s new album ‘MARY’ is out on iTunes today! https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/mary/id1040310934

Chris Rock Responds to Oscars Monologue Speculation: No One Speaks for Me

Posted on January 26, 2016 with 0 Comments

Chris Rock

Chris Rock released a statement to ET via his rep on Monday following comments from Academy Awards producer Reginald Hudlin saying that ‘I’m throwing out the show I wrote and writing a new show.'”

Rock has faced calls to walk away from his second stint as host in protest at the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ failure to nominate a single actor from black or ethnic minority backgrounds for the second year running. But ceremony organisers suggests he will, instead, attempt to address the issue on the night.

The 50-year-old comic has kept mostly mum regarding the Oscars lack of diversity, except for tweeting an ad for the Oscars and writing, “The #Oscars. The White BET Awards.”

The 88th Annual Academy Awards will air Feb. 28 at 8:30 ET/5:30 PT on ABC and streamed Live.
