Ghana’s most decorated artiste, Sarkodie has lauded young talent, Strongman as the one to wear the crown of best rapper after him.

According to the Sarkcess Music boss during an interview with Hitz FM on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 after critically studying all rappers in the country, only Strongman is capable of taking up the crown when he (Sarkodie) retires. He further posited that his assertion is not based on the fact that Strongman belongs to his music label.

He rather believes that the ‘Transformer’ rapper and The Next Big Thing In GH Winner has the timing, delivery and the soul to rap and that is the best ever in his opinion.

“He can get to me with what he is saying. He can make me laugh, think, smile and be angry a little bit. In fact he can get to you with all emotions. If you can extend it to two, I’ll add Kwesi Arthur who is another dope MC”

To be named by such legendary figures in your field of art as the next big thing to be unleashed is definitely a big plus for every artiste and the case for Strongman would be no different. But determining who is the best rapper or would be still remains an opinion. What do you make of Sarkodie’s opinion on this issue and who do you think could hold the fort of the rap game after the retirement of the ‘Glory’ rapper?
