Sarkodie has revealed how Beyonce’s afrobeat themed The Lion King; The Gift Album helped him to seal a contract in London.
Speaking on the Dentaa Show, the BET winner, said he was going through a tough time of sealing a deal in London because his partners did not understand the Afrobeat movement but in the same week Beyonce released the album featuring Shatta Wale, Burna Boy and more, the deal was sealed.
“I was in London having a meeting with these people trying to seal this deal; they were white people. I could see they were not really getting the afrobeat thing, that same week Beyonce drops that project… That same week I was able to seal that contract,’ Sarkodie told Dentaa.
He also addressed comments by Ghanaians which suggested that the joy he expressed when Shatta Wale was featured on the album was fake. According to Sarkodie, they have such thoughts because they are used to enjoying rivalries instead of seeing artists unite.
