Multiple award-winning rapper, Sarkodie, marks a new year on earth today. As expected, tons of messages have flooded social media in celebration of his talent and legacy.
Prominent among these touching messages is one from the artist’s manager, Angel Town.
Angel who doubles as a broadcaster for Entertainment magazine show, Star Buzz, recounted their unsteady start, as well as what a great adventure their partnership has turned out to be over the years.
Indeed, Angel Town and Sarkodie represent a minute percentile of African artists who have had a run spanning several years.
