Sarkodie continues to pack laurels under his belt in an upward trajectory placing Ghanaian music on the globe with relentless passion and authentic music.
The way sarkodie fans and Ghana media root give this Bob Marley Refix feature, should tell you how HUNGRY they are for an international collaboration for their favorite Tema Jay Z aka Kojo Kuntu
