Presenting a citation to the iconic rapper for his wonderful contribution to the industry, Hon. Barbara Oteng honoured Sarkodie for his amazing works and promoting Ghana on the international stage and named him Ghana's ambassador for the Year of Return..
The announcement was made at the Creative Industry forum at the National Theatre today, October 30, 2019.
Sark in his acceptance speech promised to lend his support to the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
It could be recalled that Sarkodie won the award for Best International Flow at the just ended BET Hip-Hop Awards and in his acceptance speech urged black people to take a trip to Africa especially Ghana this year, which attracted his ambassadorial status.
Sarkodie could have used the moment to bask in the euphoria but instead he told the organizers to take a closer look at Ghana next time round because the country boasts of many talented artists in that regard.
“I just want to say thank you to the Almighty God. To my family, this one is for my lil girl Titi…. I think Africa has always had it and it is about that time.
This year is the Year of Return and I will urge each and every one of you here to take a trip back home. When you’re coming to Africa, choose Ghana.”
