Award-winning rapper Sarkodie has revealed he benefited a lot from the collaboration project between Shatta Wale and Beyonce a that happened a year ago.
According to the Sarkcess Music boss in an interview, he got a contract after the ‘Already’ song which Beyounce’s featured Shatta Wale on was released.
He explained that a contract which he was supposed to sign with a group outside Ghana was delayed due to the Afrobeat genre which he was dealing with because the people he was collaborating with had very little knowledge about Afrobeat.
He added that the contract experienced a turnaround the moment the ‘Already’ song was released by Beyonce with Shatta Wale putting a touch of craft on it.
If what Sarkodie is saying is anything to go by, then it means the contract with which he had difficulty in closing got a green light as a result of the indirect influence of Shatta Wale who placed an Afrobeat feel on the already song.
Sarkodie has never been open about Shatta Wale having an influence on his career and his revelation has come as a surprise to many.
“So I was out of the country to sign a deal which was dragging for days. I had the deal with some white people.
The same week Beyonce released her song with Shatta Wale and after that, the people who were dragging their feet signed the deal for me,” Sarkodie stated.
The Sark Natives fan army boss also disclosed that the Ghana Music Industry will see a positive influence should the Lion King Album from Beyonce on which Shatta Wale has been featured do well.
