President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey has said that it takes only a wise person to sell his roots to the world.
This comment came in after Sarkodie in his acceptance speech on BET platform, urged patrons to choose Ghana when visiting Africa.
Speaking on Hitz Fm, Mark indicated that Sarkodie is a smart guy and looking at what Ghanaians have done for him, he had no option than to give back to his people by putting his country on the map.
“I told sarkodie in Kumasi that it takes a degree of wisdom to be successful in music. He is successful because he is wise. – Mark recounted
He added that Sarkodie acknowledging Akon was another strategic approach.
“Sarkodie acknowledging Akon was a strategic speech. He is establishing that Akon is part of the people he rolls with” – he added
He however advised that as creative people every little opportunity should win souls instead of the opposite.
“We don’t just talk. Let’s make sure every line of what we say wins souls” – he ended
