Gary Al-Smith, a strong Shatta Movement fan has tipped SarkCess nation boss, Sarkodie, to win the Artiste of the Decade award in this year’s VGMAs ahead of his boss Shatta Wale.
It is quiet surprising why Gary will take such a stance, especially considering how Shatta Wale has been tagged as the favorite by many industry players.
In a Facebook post today, the SM influencer and journalist explained why he thinks Sarkodie is ahead of the other contenders. He stated that the ‘Azonto’ movement started by Sarkodie was in vogue for two to three years and Sarkodie has remained relevant ever since.
He further stated that within this period, Samini was no where to be found, neither was Stonebwoy who was then a small boy.
He wrote “Sarkodie was relevant before, during and after that wave. None of the other nominated acts for Legend of the Decade have been as consistent and relevant as Sark has”.
