Many music pundits and laymen have been left in the dark as to why Akon’s deal with King Sark broke down after preliminary contacts were established.
The Konvict Music boss revealed that Sarkodie was more fixated on building his own empire as a local artiste before breaking international frontiers.
In his words, “We had plans to make him so much bigger but I think at the time his agenda was more focusing on Ghana, which worked for him. And I think that it was a plan that worked,”
“I mean, it’s arguably or arguably not – but I know for sure if had he followed our plan, he would have been a global artist without a doubt.”
“We realized that we really couldn’t work with him yet because he just wasn’t mentally ready to go on that level. We just allowed him to continue moving the way he was moving.
“Unfortunately when you have an artist and you can’t control the artists or you can’t control the asset to them, it’s hard for you to do what you need to do with them if you don’t have control over him,”
