Father of award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Michael Owusu Addo (Sarkodie), Augustine Owusu Addo, says being a big fan of Michael Jackson influenced him to name his son after the fallen American pop star.
He disclosed this backstage during the recently-held 8th edition of the Rapperholic Concert that took place in Accra.
According to Mr. Addo, he never knew the name would go a long way to affect his son to become a music star.
I was a big fan of Michael Jackson. That is how come I named him Michael.
I didn’t know he was going to be great in music. When he started rapping, he said it was a hobby and now it has gotten to this stage.
I am praying that he goes on and does better. Mr Addo also named ‘Brighter Day‘ as his favourite track among all of his son’s songs.
