Ghanaian rapper and entrepreneur Michael Owusu Addo known as Sarkodie has given praised most Ghanaian artiste including Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy for coming together to put Ghana on the map instead of working individually.
Sarkodie stated that it was necessary for Ghanaian artiste to come together and support each other more than they separate projects they execute.
According to Sarkodie, Ghana made music in Africa huge for the world to recognize.
Give it up to Ghana. Ghana definitely when it comes to music in Africa we stepped it up. The invasion to me started from when we realized we should stick together and push together.
Because from the beginning, individually we were trying to do it on our own. You see Mr Eazi trying, Shatta Wale trying, but it started making sense when we did it together. When we started doing shows together and selling arenas together.

The new documentary captures the trio — Diplo, Ape Drums and Walshy Fire — voyaging to West Africa during recent tour stops in Lagos, Nigeria and Accra, Ghana.
