The father of award-winning rapper, 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 at the 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 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.
