Ghanaian rap icon, Sarkodie, has recently advocated for compassion and understanding toward young and upcoming artists in the entertainment industry.
Sarkodie, known as the ‘Landlord of Ghana Music,’ provided his thoughtful viewpoint on the issues that today’s younger generation of artists confront in today’s media-driven society.
Sarkodie showed empathy for the pressures that young talents face as they navigate both social and conventional media channels on his Twitter account.
He reflected on his journey, noting that during his time, artists had the luxury of making mistakes and learning from them behind closed doors, away from the relentless scrutiny of the public eye.
He did, however, highlight a different scenario for today’s rising artists, who are thrown into the spotlight from the start of their careers, leaving little chance for seclusion and learning via trial and error.
While on tour in the United States, Sarkodie made a poignant plea to the industry and the general public to rally behind these rising stars and provide them with the necessary support and nurturing. He recognized the difficulties that young artists experience and asked everyone to approach them with care and understanding.
Sarkodie emphatically urged everyone to give these young talents a chance to develop and thrive in their careers.
