Rapper Sarkodie is the biggest Ghanaian artiste in South Africa, says South African rapper Nasty C.
The former disclosed on Starr Drive on Starr 103.5 FM on Monday, April 16, 2018 that people in his homeland know the ‘Glory’ act.
“Ghanaian artiste? I feel like yes because I knew about him before I even started getting like recognition and I already knew who Sarkodie was,” stated the rapper to host Giovani Caleb.
“I heard Sarkodie. I know Sarkodie from way back. I know about Sarkodie. Sarkodie is big. I think… South Africa knows Sarkodie!”
He also spoke about the desire to work with Sarkodie on a musical collaboration, and the first time they met.
“Yes. Definitely. We haven’t done that. We met… It was like a quick “yo, what’s up? My name is…” and that was… It was in South Africa for the MAMA Awards and I met him backstage.”
