Rapper Sarkodie has said his primary focus in the music industry is how to make his brand appeal to global audience.

Sarkodie, being one of Africa’s most honored artiste, says building a solid brand that is recognized globally is the focus.

Speaking at the 2019 edition of the Music in Africa Conference for Collaboration, Exchange and Showcases (ACCES 2019), Sarkodie stressed, “I don’t have to compete as an artist now. My strategy has been to build my brand, following and everything Sarkodie till today.”

The ‘Saara’ hit maker also had some advice for artistes, particularly, up and coming musicians, at the event held in Accra, Ghana.

He cautioned them to identify their niche market and focus on getting their songs to them in order to maximize returns instead of focusing on airplay.

“Crowdsource the people who need your music most, don’t focus on getting your music on radio” the record-breaking musician averred.

The event took place from November 28 to November 30,2019.

Speakers include Claude Grunitzky (Founder TRUE Africa, Togo, UK), Oye Akideinde (Simfy OTT, Nigeria), Aibee Abidoye (Chocolate City, Nigeria), Elizabeth Ntiamoah (Boomplay, Ghana), and Mark Levine (USA).
