Ghanaian rapper and songwriter, Chief Osei Bonsu, popularly known as Tulenkey, has expressed his reverence for Sarkodie.
Tulenkey claims he admires Sarkodie because he aspires to achieve the same level of success as the landlord.
Speaking in an interview on Cape Coast-based Property FM, monitored by 1Family Radio, the young rapper noted that he learns from Sarkodie every blessed day like a book.
His rationale was that, rather than people beneath you, you should only learn from those who have already achieved success in the field in which you find yourself.
He said, “So it will be very serious to use someone that maybe I’m more established than or someone who hasn’t gotten far in the industry.’’
“Because I want to get there and do better than him, so I learn from Sarkodie each and every day like a book,’’ he noted.
The standard for rap and hip-hop music in Ghana, according to him, is Sarkodie.
“I look up to Sarkodie; that’s why I always use him as my example because he is the best or the apex when it comes to Ghanaian hip-hop or rap,’’ Tulenkey added.
