Sarkodie and E-40 Put on a Show in New Rappity Rap Single ‘CEO Flow’

Sarkodie shares collaboration with E-40 'CEO Flow' accompanied by a music video.

Sarkodie and E-40 spit impressive verses over a minimal instrumental with an aggressive bassline and 808s. The Ghanaian lyricist makes his case for being one of the best on the continent before the West Coast rap legend undulates in his verse.

For the visuals, Sarkodie recreates the studio session of him laying down his verse. His presence is as convincing on the visuals as it is in the song. Visuals effects are used to emphasize his prowess as a lyricist.


"CEO Flow" is a modern rappity rap banger—the song has no hooks. The focus is on raps, and if you are fan of rap, you'll be treated to two emcees flexing their technical abilities while sounding delighted with that display.

Sarkodie's one of the best in Ghana and the rest of the continent as a whole. On "CEO Flow," he proves he can stand among the best of them worldwide.

Nothing like a rapper who can back every assertion with facts. For instance, peep the lines:

"I'm the best to ever do it/ This is not even a question/ They don't wanna see me great/ And that be the impression a dey get from all these soft ass rappers/ You dealing with some top-class shatta"

You may not entirely agree, but his raps and lengthy resume make his argument compelling.

Stream "CEO Flow" on Apple Music and Spotify and watch the music video below:

Here's What You Need To Know About The Political Unrest In Sudan

Thousands have been protesting the Sudanese government over the weekend, supporting the military's plans for a coup.

Sudan's transitional government is in turmoil as thousands of citizens conducted a sit-in protest against them, over the weekend. A group of Sudanese citizens have called on the military to disestablish the nation's current government, as the country struggles with the greatest crisis they've seen since the end of former dictator Omar al-Bashir's controversial ruling, two years ago. The weekend's pro-military protests come as anti-military protestors took to the streets earlier this month to fight for civilian-ruled laws.

Military-aligned demonstrators assembled outside of the famously off-limits entrance of the Presidential Palace located in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum on Monday. Gatherers set up tents, blocking off access to two main intersections, cutting off access to the capital for those inside. Police attempted to wave off crowds with teargas, with Khartoum state officials saying they had, "repelled an attempted assault on the seat of government," in a statement issued Monday.

The assembly was called for by a coalition of rebel groups and political parties that support Sudan's military, accusing the civilian political parties of mismanagement and monopolizing power under their ruling. Demonstrations began on Saturday, but Sunday's gathering saw a lower attendance. According to Reuters, by Monday afternoon, thousands, between 2,000 - 3,000, had returned to voice their concerns. 52-year-old tribal elder Tahar Fadl al-Mawla spoke at the helm of the sit-in outside of the Presidential palace saying, "The civilian government has failed. We want a government of soldiers to protect the transition." Alongside a 65-year-old Ahman Jumaa who claimed to have traveled more than 900 kilometers (570 miles) from Southern region Nyala to show his support.

Protesters are demanding the appointment of a new cabinet that is "more representative of the people who participated in the December 2019 revolution that eventually led to the ousting of former president Omar al-Bashir", Al Jazeera reported from Sudan. Protesters headed towards the Presidential Palace, where an emergency cabinet meeting was being held when they were met by police forces.

Pro-civilian political parties have plans for their own demonstration on Thursday, the anniversary of the 1964 revolution that overthrew Sudan's first military regime under Ibrahim Abboud and brought in a period of democracy that the country still struggles to uphold.


Sudanese Twitter users shared their thoughts online, with many drawing similarities between the current unrest and other political crises the nation has faced.
