Album review: 'Highest' by Sarkodie

NEW LEVELS: Sarkodie's new album, 'Higher'

HAILED BY the media as one of the biggest hip-hop acts on the African continent and with three hugely popular and acclaimed studio albums to his name, the Ghanaian hip-hop artist and winner of the Best International Act: Africa at the 2012 BET Awards, Sarkodie has announced the release of his highly anticipated album Highest.


Scheduled for release on September 8, Highest is a collection of 18 solid hip-hop and afrobeats tracks that are set to push him even further into the international stratosphere.

Track 19, a bonus number, is global smash Painkiller featuring Runtown, which has been streamed more than eight million times to date.

The album also features some major acts, such as his long-time friend and producer Jayso, the UK’s very-own Big Narstie, American-born Victorian Kimani (Kenya), Moelogo (UK/ Nigeria), spoken word artist Suli Breaks (UK), Korede Bello (Nigeria), Praize (Nigeria), Yung L (Nigeria), Joey B (Ghana), Jesse Jagz (Nigeria), Flavour (Nigeria) and Bobii Lewis (UK).


Set to unleash his latest offering of stellar African-influenced hip-hop sounds to the world, Sarkodie announced the album at an exclusive listening event at the plush Electroland Showroom in Accra, Ghana where he also treated his fans to screenings of cinematic visuals for six tracks from the project which will all debut on the same day the album is released.

At the event, Sarkodie described Highest as his most challenging project yet. He also stated that it is a celebration of his achievements, going from being that kid on the streets of Tema, to selling out venues across the globe.

King Sark is ready to take his brand of fearless and contagious hip-hop hits to even higher heights.
