Celebrated Ghanaian artists have been at the forefront in regards to elevating newbies in the industry. Whether by posting new records of the new crop in their socials, holding seminars, endorsing them, or getting featured in their projects.
In a recent interview on Hitz FM, Mr Drew lauded Sarkodie’s impeccable impact of exposing the newbies to the music scene in the United Kingdom. Mr Drew was part of the pack comprising of Yaw Tog, Koffi Jamar, Kweku Flick, Amerado, and Camidoh that were under Sarkodie’s wing during the ‘Ghana Party in The Park’ show.
Mr Drew recounts how the King of rap gave them a V.I.P. treatment during their visit. ‘He bought sneakers for all of us and some clothes. He helped us link up with very influential people in the UK. We had the opportunity to dine with the Spotify head, it was crazy, courtesy Sarkodie. He had us speak to them, they advised us and we took contacts. He put us on if it was a normal day in the UK we couldn’t have seen these people.’’
He was astonished by the gesture accorded by Sarkodie and thanked him for putting them on.
