Sarkodie, one of Africa’s finest MCs and Ghana’s best musical export, with millions of sales and multiple awards to his credit in his decade-long career, releases a hot new track ‘Hasta La Vista’ today, Friday the 26th of November 2020.
This high-energy dance song ‘Hasta La Vista’ features one of the hottest names in Nigerian music right now Zlatan ( best known for his track featuring Burna Boy ‘Killin Dem’), and production from Zanku Sound pioneer, Rexxie.
This song is expected to take off in Africa and all over the world and keep the world on its feet, dancing. As Sarkodie says “Ghana meets Nigeria! Dance moves to bring good vibrations for everyone.”
Michael Owusu Addo is the Ghanaian rap icon, best known as Sarkodie. With a career spanning 10 years at the top of his game and a decade since his landmark debut album, 2009’s joyous Makye – one of African music’s biggest and best-loved hip-hop albums.
“I always want to open doors to other territories, to other audiences, and new people who might relate to my music. That wish is always there”, Sarkodie said.
“I rap in my native language. There came a point where I started to think of ways the world could understand me,” he added.
“The way to do that was to work and work on my delivery. You don’t need to understand what I’m saying to feel it.” As well as having tens of millions of album sales and over 80 awards to his name in Ghana, Sarkodie’s sound – a fizzing blend of hiplife, hip-hop, and Afrobeats – has led to sold-out shows at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum and performances with an impressive array of international names, including T-Pain, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, and R&B supernova Miguel, who he duetted with at the 2014 MTV Africa Awards.
