Over the past few weeks, there has been a debate over whether rapper Sarkodie should be added to the educational curriculum for students to study his brand, personality and music success or not.
It stemmed from producer Hammer’s suggestion that he has, in 11 years, achieved what no Ghanaian musician has been able to attain in music.
His statement caused a stir in the industry, where some people like Mark Okraku Mantey replied him saying “Kojo Antwi and Daddy Lumba are monuments who deserve to be studied first even before Sarkodie though Sark is a brilliant rapper.”
Sarkodie in an interview on Happy FM, monitored by Adomonline.com over the weekend, reacted to the matter.
He said it will be hard for him to say yes to Hammer’s assertion but added that, “If he is thinking like that, that’s what he sees and that’s how he feels. I am really honoured and that’s serious and if I am at that point, that’s huge.”

Asked which other rapper he would choose over him to be taught in schools, he said, “I think I will go for Obrafour. I think he has done something that no one has. Even as young as he is, he kept his brand clean for a long time. He has stayed away from a lot. He’s worth emulating.”
