During his UK azonto tour in December of last year, Sarkodie stopped by Tim Westwood of BBC 1Xtra and made it known to the world that he is not signed to Akon’slabel. Mr. Obidi emphatically stated :
I am not signed, Akon endorsed Sarkodie. ‘You need to watch out for Sarkodie from Ghana’ that is what Akon is saying … up to now Sarkodie has been independent.
Fast forward to last weekend, in an interview with Joy Entertainment news – Babs (President of Konvict Music International) couldn’t admit directly to Sarkodie being signed to the Konvict imprint. In a politically correct response when asked about Sarkodie’s situation with Akon’s label, Babs simply said that they are still in business.
“We are still doing business; there is nothing [that has] changed. You can see the success even people who were complaining and talking crazy and after we endorsed Sarkodie you see where Sarkodie is and is going to be even be bigger than that … Sarkodie is officially with us [Konvict Music].”
