On "Fa Hooki Me," Sarkodie deliveries his signature quick-fire rhymes in Twi, even referencing coronavirus at one point. The main draw is the song's catchy hook.
The artist has been consistent with his output during lockdown. He put out the track "Sub Zero" earlier this month.
Sarkodie released his album Black Love last year, which featured a slew of popular singles. He won Best International Flow at the BET Hip Hop awards that year, and later spoke with OkayAfrica about representing for Ghana on a global scale. "I believe in keeping my native tongue and beliefs and having my people have somebody that looks like them, sounds like them, and talks like them be represented on an international platform," said the artist.
