Celebrated Ghanaian artiste, Sarkodie, put the spotlight on Ghana once again in his BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Afrobeats Concerto performance.
This was Sarkodie’s first time performing with BBC’s Philharmonic Orchestra. The hosts of the concert were Eddie Kadi, Remi Burgz and DJ Edu. Remi Burgz introduced Sarkodie as an absolute legend. In quoting Remi, she said, “Let’s start this off the right way with an absolute legend hailing from Ghana…”
The Afrobeats legend started off his performance with his hit song LUCKY which features Nigerian A-list artiste, Rudeboy of P-Square.
He also mentioned that he has love for Afrobeats but he cannot overlook the fact that he is an emcee. “… I love afrobeats…but I’m an emcee, I rap and I love this song. Let’s go…” said Sarkodie.
He went ahead to perform a personal favorite, ROLLIES AND CIGARS and LABADI which features King Promise.
One lovely thing about Sarkodie’s performance was how the set for his performance was clad in the Ghanaian Kente cloth. This was a graceful way to promote Ghanaian culture.
After his splendid performance, Sarkodie had an interview with Eddie Kadi, host of BBC 1Xtra’s Charts Africa where they discussed the JAMS album and the its creative process.
Other African artistes that performed alongside Sarkodie include; CKay, Maleek Berry, Pheelz and Nikita Kering.
The Afrobeats Concerto was to mark 20 years of BBC 1Xtra’s dedication to promoting African music and culture.
