Sarkodie, born as Michael Kwesi Owusu Addo, began his music career as an underdog rapper in Ghana. In 2010, he had several collaborations and earned numerous accolades and nominations, which enabled him to expand internationally. He has toured the U.S.A and U.K. and released his fifth studio album Black Love on December 20, 2019. It features guest artist such as Mr Eazi, Efya, Donae’o, Idris Elba, Stonebwoy, Tekno, Maleek Berry, King Promise and Kizz Daniel.
Ahead of his album release, I worked alongside Sarkodie’s UK manager to promote the album and lend support wherever needed.
The work included:
- support his main manager in everyday tasks/admin
- figuring out new ideas for image building in the UK
- organizing the music video for the single below and ensuring everything runs smoothly on the shoot day (which being the hottest day of the year in a building without AC)
