Sarkodie And Stonebwoy Are Gaining Recognition And Support In Other Markets- CEO Of Universal Music South Africa

Arguably two of the best musicians to have ever graced the Ghanaian music space, Sarkodie and Stonebwoy have gained the recognition of the CEO of Universal Music South Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.

Speaking on which African countries the global music industry should pay attention to outside of Kenya and Nigeria, Sipho Dlamini intimated that the “amazing” body of art of both Sarkodie and Stonebwoy respectively has led them to gaining “recognition and support in other markets.”

“I’d definitely say Ghana, for one, partly because there is such a strong Ghanaian diaspora population in the UK and beyond – and they’re also very passionate and very dynamic in the music and in their sound,” said Sipho Dlamini in a new interview with MusicBusinessWorldwide.

He added, “Fuse ODG has nearly 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify – that’s significant. Other Ghanaian artists like Sarkodie and Stonebwoy are also doing amazing things and getting recognition and support in other markets.”
