Mohammed Awal, first runner-up of the 7th edition of MTN Hitmaker has stated that he’s cool with Sarkodie not signing him and rather signing Strongman.
According to Awal in an interview with Andy Dosty on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz Friday 1st February, though he was groomed by Sarkodie after emerging as the third runner-up of TV3’s Talented Kidz, he doesn’t see it as a big deal should Sarkodie sign him unto SarkCess Music.
In his assertion, signing Strongman, he felt happy for the then Kumasi-based rapper and cited that Sarkodie might have seen something extraordinary about the ‘Transformer’ hitmaker which pushed him to sign him(Sarkodie) and that gave him(Awal) the urge to work harder.
Awal was like a ‘son’ to Sarkodie, and to Awal, Sarkodie was like his ‘Godfather’ in music.
But just about a year ago, the relationship turned sour between father and son.
According to reports, both were having bad blood due to Sarkodie’s failure to sign the young rapper to his record label, Sarkcess Music but according to Awal, he’s cool with Sarkodie in any way possible.
Award-winning Ghanaian rap legend Sarkodie has signed rapper Strongman to his record label owned SarkCess Music on March 24 2017.
