Five months after winning the Best International Act award at the BET Awards, Ghanaian act Sarkodie has finally received the original plaque designed for the award.
Initially presented with a miniature plaque, authorities at the Black Entertainment Television have finally presented the “authentic” award plaque to Sarkodie.
Management of Sarkodie unveiled the plaque to a gathering of journalists in Accra on Wednesday December 19, during the launch of Sarkodie Live in Concert, which comes off on Christmas day.
Sarkodie, who was joint winner with Nigeria’s Wizkid, became the first Ghanaian artiste to win the award.
In a related development, all is set for Sarkodie Live in Concert. The concert will also featureperformances from Nigeria’s Ice Prince and Iyanya as well as Obrafour, Efya, Keche, Sherifa Gunu, and EL.
Last year’s successful maiden edition, put Sarkodie on a whole new pedestal, as he was able to get thousands of music lovers to come out on Christmas day, packing the Dome of the AICC to the brim.
Sarkodie, who will be performing live with Kwame Yeboah’s Ohia B3y3 Ya Band, says he’s going to give his all on December 25.
“I am ready for this event. We’ve been rehearsing for some time now and I believe we are going to put up a good show,” he says.
“I’ve been a fan before and knows how it feels to attend a show and not get your money’s worth, which is why we are putting in a lot of hard work to ensure that this concert lives up to expectation, so that every fan will live the Dome happy”.
