|The Temanian: 'Obidiponbidi' SARKODIE|
I am going to do this here and now as an individual who baring his thoughts straight up. This has got nothing to do with dem say-dem say, because if I was the only one who went to see history being made then I for don die with insults na, but the whole world follow me see. Before I continue, I must quickly quote Roy P. Basler who once said, ‘To know the truth of history is to realize its ultimate myth and its inevitable ambiguity.’
It was dubbed the biggest and most significant annual entertainment event in Ghana. Organized by the leading event management firm, Charterhouse in collaboration with the leading telecommunication network, Vodafone, the night was without petty flaws, which event for dis world no get comma; but it was an event that came on point. From the red carpet to the MC’s ‘ambulance skims’, to the stage to the audience, to the ambience, to the performers (from the Choc Boiz who killed it off, Buk Bak were sweet, Kwaw Kese brought his Champagnes inside a wheelbarrow, 4x4 were fantastic, any yes turned Pastor Lord Kenya rocked cutely with his gospels) and to the winners – it was truly a Recharged Night!
When it was time for the nominees to be awarded, one name kept beeping my mind – Obidiponbidi. That is the name that everyone started the year with for his Azonto crooning (see http://yemilog.blogspot.com/2011/12/in-2011-between-azonto-dance-madness.html). If anyone or force was against the ‘Rapperholic’ dude, then I summon you to check http://yemilog.blogspot.com/2011/12/when-rapper-goes-holic-on-sunday-25th.html, then you will understand what I am talking about – the boy good jooor!
For the records, the man Sarkodie led the pack of nominees for the 2012 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards with 12 nominations including 3 in the Best Collaboration of the Year category for ‘Sweetio’ with Raquel, ‘U Go Kill Me’ featuring EL and ‘I’m in Love With You’ featuring Efya; songwriter of the year, Artist of the Year, Most Popular Song of the Year and Album of the year. And the good news is that he has made history back to back as the Artist of the Year in Ghana for 2012!

SARKODIE isn’t just a history maker or breaker, in his field, he is a genius!
Just as Oscar Wilde once said and I key into that line, ‘(A)ny fool can make history, but it takes a genius to write it.’ The ‘Temania’ as he calls himself has written yet again another history. See you in 2013 with a triplet bang as impossibility is nothing.
