    I love my sarkodie.wow

    Catchy as hell! This actually sounds like something from the rap genre without trying to be American. Many of these artists like to form ‘rapper’ but apart from Sarkodie and M.I I don’t know who else actually gets it right. I hope he’s talking about how daft it is that any remotely successful singer from Ajegunle to New York is called ‘Illuminati’ *hiss* Any Ghanaians here to translate?

      he said,when he was suffering and hustling through rap battles just to be notcied,people did not say anything but now that he through hardword has made it this far,enemies are pointing him to joining Illuminati..

  • akua August 20, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    iris u are very right, but do u understand twi?

  • Af August 20, 2013 at 5:11 pm

    What he’s saying is a response to all his critics and haters who recently started accusations and rumors about him joining the illuminati based i guess on his association with Akon and subsequent success. Anyway great and vid and song. Talent here.

  • marie August 20, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    thats exactly what he is saying. (translate)”before money, no one mentioned his name but now that he has money everybody is calling him Illuminati”

  • The Grinch August 20, 2013 at 5:47 pm

    He’s okay, I guess…. Methinks the guys over @ Syndic8 Records’ll give him a run for his money…..

    • Anna August 20, 2013 at 6:01 pm

      *would* not will…. them giving him a run for his money is conditional not certain…

    • I_I August 21, 2013 at 7:36 am

      Syndic8? Abeg no make me laugh.

      • The Grinch August 21, 2013 at 11:57 am

        Ms Anna can’t tell I’m being TongueInCheek… That they WILL make some of that “music” and WILL give the likes of Sarkodie a run for their money…..Not!!!

      • The Grinch August 21, 2013 at 12:02 pm

        Oh, wait… I WAS being tongue in cheek, not ‘M…. No worry, Wizkid go catch you :p

  • Sel August 20, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    A bit late but he’s basically saying that when he was a struggling artist no one labelled him as illuminati but now that the money is coming People are saying that he’s illuminati and these same people have forgotten that his rap game is tight and that he’s best at what he does. So basically he’s saying that if he’s successful why don’t they attribute it to his hard work and talent which is so evident. And also he mentioned in some parts that he always attributes his success to God in his songs and even that people say he is Illuminati. And that right now he doesn’t care, cos the more people try to bring him down, the more places he is going

  • mouth mouth August 20, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    @ Mouth mouth what is all this gebberish

  • Aji B September 18, 2013 at 5:17 pm

    Sarkodie is so good at what he does that you wont even know
    how to describe him. Gaining wealth from what u do doesn’t make u a
    cult member. What is illuminati??? All this people saying
    illuminati have they ever seen the devil with their eyes or have
    they seen him doing rituals with the devil. Sometimes I wonder if
    people really have faith in God. See am a Gambian, I have no idea
    of what the guy is saying but I can feel the rap and it’s so nice.
    So he deserves everything he has. Saying his mother is dead and he
    won an Award. Do people forget that is God that brought us here for
    trials and will surely take us back when he needs us. SARKODIE U
    ROCK Continue your good work
