A photo has immerged out of nowhere and the hardcore fans of Sarkodie, Sark Natives cannot keep their calm.
The photo which had Chris Attoh, Edem [formerly Ayigbe Edem] and a young Sarkodie who was yet to taste money and fame referred to the rapper as “& co”.
It is a common practice in Ghana to refer to upcoming acts who have been billed for a show as “& co”, “and more” etc, however, it never crossed anyone’s mind that the most decorated rapper in Africa could have been regarded as such.
The photo was taken in 2009 during the 10th anniversary of the Ghana Music Awards around the time Sarkodie released his debut album dubbed, “Makye.”
Makye received positive reviews from critics and fans. It was supported by a concert held at Holy City Gardens in Accra. On 16 September 2009, Sarkodie performed alongside Busta Rhymes at the Busta Rhymes Live in Ghana concert. In 2010, his “Push” and “Baby” songs were ranked ninth and thirteenth on Joy FM’s Top 50 songs of 2009, respectively. The album’s lead single “Baby” became an instant hit and gave Sarkodie exposure.

Sarkodie's name was written boldly in his shirt but he was referred to as "& co"
Some of you guys should understand if he brags in his rap
