The 25 Essential Sarkodie Songs

From "U Go Kill Me" to "Original" to "Can't Let You Go," we've compiled the most significant songs of the Ghanaian rap king's career.

Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie has accomplished so much that if his handwork should suddenly become the topic of conversation, you'd be hard pressed to pick exactly where to start from.

With a career spanning a little over a decade, the rapper and entrepreneur has proved himself to be one of Africa's greatest musicians, and arguably Africa's best rapper. Sarkodie also wields a reputation for being Africa's most decorated rapper. He has won more awards than any other rapper in African music, including Ghana Music Awards, MTV Africa Music Awards, and BET Awards. Having won a total of 92 awards out of 165 nominations, it's safe to call the rapper from Tema a living legend.

Sarkodie began his run in the late 2000s, hitting the mainstream in 2010. He's stayed there for more than ten years dropping hit after hit after hit, becoming Ghana's biggest, most loved, and most envied rapper in the process. But his A-list profile on the African music scene aside, this rapper is one who has the art of hit-making down to a science. He knows how to make music, and he knows how to make hits. And he knows who exactly to collaborate with on a particular song to make even better.

Sarkodie has had an amazing run, and it doesn't look like he's stopping any time soon. In light of this, we want to take you through a look at the best of what the Sarkcess Music CEO has done so far.
