I think it’s been a while since I heard an artiste like that. Not because he is with me. When we were coming, it was very raw. I had no friend who was rapping. Strongman has the timing, delivery and the soul. That’s why I took him, he gets to me. He makes me laugh. He gets to me in all directions,” Sarkodie told Hitz FM in Accra.

You shouldn’t let anyone come in between that. The truth I stand for is sharing my story with people,” Sarkodie said.He continued that, “You need to stand for it and be stubborn. The greatest people celebrated stood for one thing they believed in. Being nervous is part of it but be determined and if you have that you can do whatever”.
