“I am not the best, I am the one” – Sarkodie says

Published

on

“The lizard that jumped from the high Iroko tree to the ground said he would praise himself if no one else did.” The quote is from the book f Things Fall Apart by the renowned Nigerian writer Chinua Achebe.

Perhaps riding on the above-mentioned proclamation by the African celebrated novelist, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie has accordingly blown his own trumpet

That is to say, after so many years in the music industry with hit songs and countless awards, Sarkodie says he is not only the best when it comes to the craft but he is in fact, the one, ceteris paribus!

In a tweet on Sunday, November 28, 2022, Sarkodie wrote “I’m not the best, I’m the one”.

Sarkodie’s claim to be the one has been accepted by “SarkNatives”, but those who have mad love for good music built on thought-provoking lyrics, Sarkodie is not the one as he erroneously envisaged.
