Sarkodie’s initial participation on Grammy’s new show, “Herbal Tea & White Sofas,” is another win for Ghana and a step closer to tremendous success.
“Herbal Tea & White Sofas,” a new series in which celebrities divulge their backstage essentials, has already featured some international shot-callers, and the two-time BET Award-winner will be featured in the next episode.
According to reports, Sarkodie’s interview will be live on the Recording Academy’s official YouTube page on September 15 and will be published later that day on GRAMMY.com, the Recording Academy’s official website.
Following the announcement of Sarkodie’s inclusion, the hashtag #SarkodieXGRAMMYs quickly rose to the top of Twitter Ghana’s trending topics. Fans erupted in applause as well.
This isn’t the first time the rapper’s name has appeared on the Grammy website.
On Wednesday, August 28, the hip-hop/hiplife performer, whose main objective is to win a Grammy one day, had his name appear on their portal for the first time.
His name appeared in a feature story about Victoria Kimani, a Kenyan afro-pop singer.
The article, titled “Afropop Queen Victoria Kimani Is Kenya’s Best Kept Secret,” discussed their song “Wash It,” which they collaborated on.
The slow-tempo afro-pop song, which was released in March of this year, has over 200k YouTube views.
Sarkodie isn’t the only Ghanaian performer featured on the Grammys website.
Shatta Wale, a dancehall star, was recently featured in Beyonce’s “The Lion King: The Gift” album feature article.
M.anifest, Sarkodie’s adversary, was also featured in a piece on Burna Boy’s “African Giant” album.
