Rapper Sarkodie says signing artistes to his SarkCess Music label is his way of helping said acts get to the level of success they hope to achieve.
The ‘Kanta‘ rapper told JOY FM’s Ibrahim Ben-Bako, he believes extending help to talented artistes is the right thing to do and he leaves the creative process in the hands of the artistes.
“it’s just that when I have had the opportunity to be in the game for a while, its only right that I turn back to help them get to the level they want to get to,” explains Sarkodie.
“I’m not looking at changing anything about Strongman or Akwaboah. They just have to do whatever they were doing that caught my attention and I will just put a magnifying glass on them.”
He also spoke about the future of his label and artistes.
“We have great artiste but when it comes to signing, it comes with a lot and if you want to really do it well it is one at a time, take your time and push them out there. I don’t really like to crowd my whole team with lots of talent. I like to help by talking to them sometimes and if I can sign them, I do sign.”
Rapper StrongMan and Singer and Songwriter Akwaboah are the two acts signed to the imprint so far.
