The envious and mutually beneficial relationship seen between American rap legend Christopher Brian Bridges, better known as Ludacris, and Africa's most decorated rapper Sarkodie dates back to some unforgettable memories.
The emergence of remarkable rappers such as Okyeame Kwame, Obrafour, Lord Kenya, Reggie Rockstone, and others led some Ghanaian music fans to believe that the apex of rap artistry had been reached.
In an unexpected turn of events, Sarkodie emerged from the midst of the storm to deliver an outstanding rap performance.
This moment of awe gave the then-young but incredible rap talent the opportunity to share the stage with the 20-time Grammy nominee.
The global icon was then booked by Vodafone Ghana to perform at the 2012 Vodafone 020 Live Concert, thrilling the audience with his songs and giving Sarkodie the opportunity to battle him on his “How Low” remix.
Ludacris was taken aback by how Sarkodie paid dividends to punches with consistent flow and delivery, leaving Ghanaians excited to see one of their own and Ludacris perform one song together on one stage.
That was the dawn of their relationship, which will give the musical world a mind-blowing track on the American idol's upcoming Afrobeats projects after 11 years.
For nearly a week, the American hip-hop star has been in Ghana, sharing a musical moment with Ghana’s music landlord.
As there have been several videos and pictures of them together in the recording studio, the two are expected to produce a powerful track from their recent collaboration.
The Grammy-winning rapper is seen vibing with a song in a recent video posted online, much excited with the caption, "Live From The Motherland, Accra, Ghana."
Ludacris appears to be serious about Ghana being his motherland, as his recent visit was his third to the country.
As previously stated, he performed at the Vodafone 020 Live Concert during his first visit in 2012, which was preceded by his private visit in 2019 during Ghana's Year of Return, where he visited the Cape Coast Castle and was inspired by the struggles of his Black ancestors.
