Management of BET award winner Sarkodie ‘Obidiponbidi’ has officially responded to widespread rumors that the artiste is a member of the Illuminati secret society, a dreaded cult believed to have the power to control the world and also bring fame and fortune to its members.
Though many people doubt the existence of an ‘Illuminati Society’, the
mere mention of the name is enough to generate discussions.
Some of the world’s greatest musicians including Jay Z, Beyonce,
Michael Jackson and Rihana have been reported as members of this cult.
Members of the group have also been touted as Satanists and semi
anti-Christs and unfortunately, the rising fame of Ghana’s Sarkodie and
his success in the music industry are being linked to Illuminati.
In what appears to be an attempt to lay the issue to rest once and for
all, Sarkodie’s manager, Sammy Forson has given an official response.
“How do you even know when a person is an Illuminati member? Is it when
you do a particular sign or what?
It is funny. It is funny. Seriously Sarkodie is not into Illuminati or belongs to any secret society or cult.
“Sarkodie is a strong Christian who believes in God, who prays a lot,
who goes to church and believes in the power of the Holy Ghost and that
is what it is.
I have worked with him for a very long time and I have prayed with him all this while.
I have seen him in church, I have seen him outside church and all of
that so whatever he is today is a testimony of what God can do when you
give your life to him and for me, being an insider and working with him,
you can call him whatever you want to call him but knowing him, he is
just a young man who believes in God and that’s it,” Sammy Forson noted
in an interview with Jon Germain, host of the Allo Tigo show on Metro
Forson added that Sarkodie would not trade his Christian faith and
principles for anything; therefore he joining the Illuminati was an
Sarkodie recently made history when he won the 2012 BET award for Best
International Act (Africa) at a ceremony held at the Shrine Auditorium
in Los Angeles.
He is the very first Ghanaian to have won an award at the BET awards.
Though Kojo Antwi and D-Black had been nominated in previous BET awards, they could not win.
The Tema-based rapper also won artiste of the year at this year’s Ghana Music Awards (GMAs).
He won the same award in 2010. He also won best rapper of the year
award and most popular song of the year for ‘You Go Kill Me’, on which
he featured EL of ‘Obuumo Ona’ fame at the 2012 GMAs.
In fact, the ‘You Go Kill Me’ beat and instrumentation was produced by EL.
