As most of us are aware, the Highest, Rap King, Sarkodie got hitched over the weekend, Yes!!! Sarkodie is married. The internationally acclaimed rapper got married to his long-time girlfriend, Tracy popularly known as Tracy Sarkcess.
Now many people have been waiting for this day for a very long time. Especially when the couple welcomed their firstborn, Titi, the wedding of the two was highly anticipated. On Saturday, July 21, their wishes came true, but what I am sure many did not like was, the couple decided to have a private wedding, which means only a few people were allowed to witness the union.
I am however honoured to be part of the select few who were there to witness the beautiful union. I must say it was a top class wedding and the Highest really went all out for his lady. I want to share a short story of how Sarkodie and Tracy became what they are today.
Let me start from the very beginning, Sarkodie and Tracy were neighbours. They lived just two blocks apart from each other. Even though they lived closed to each other, they hadn’t spoken yet. Sark, however, had a serious crush on Tracy and required the services of a mutual friend to link him up with her. Days went by and he wasn’t receiving any positive vibes from the mutual friend, who by the way is called Matilda, cousin of Tracy.
Eager to know if Tracy had accepted to link up with him, he kept on “harassing” Matilda for answers to his request. This went on for a while and one day, frustrated Matilda told him point blank that she [Tracy] is not interested and she doesn’t think it would work out, so he [Sarkodie] should forget about it.
Years flew by and Tracy had just returned from Germany and was outside her home with some friends having a chat. Sarkodie who was also coming home from a studio session saw the lady he had a crush on sitting outside. Tracy asked “hey, isn’t that Mike?” but the angry disappointed Sarkodie that moment said some distasteful things to Tracy which wasn’t as welcoming as she would have wanted as a reply from him.
After the little altercation, Tracy felt hurt, and she reached out to him to tend to her wounded scars. They had a walk in the neighbourhood and this allowed them to know each other well and I can boldly say; that was the beginning of their love story.
Getting to understand the vision of the man she has now come to call husband, she took it upon herself to push the brand SARKODIE as higher as she could. She created social media pages and the rest, well, is what we are witnessing, the two are now husband and wife. There is no true love story without opposition and their love faced great opposition from Sarkodie’s mum who wasn’t a fan of Tracy because she was in short skirts all the time when she came back to Ghana from Germany for holidays. The couple, however, overcame this and now she [Sarkodie’s mum] is happy because her son is happy with the lady in whom he finds love.
The wedding was attended by top personalities in the country which included the best man Angel Town who doubles as Sarkodie’s manager and cousin to the bride, Joselyn Dumas, Juliet Ibrahim, Sammy Forson, Nana Appiah Mensah, Peter Okoye of P Square Fame, K.O.D, Mr Amoabeng, Obrafour, Possigee, MOGbeats and a host of other dignitaries.
The wedding took place at the Labadi Beach Hotel in Accra at 6pm. The couple were graced with wonderful live band music from Patch Bay Band. I want to wish the newlyweds a happy marriage life and a “Sarkcessful” union.
