Sarkodie’s first float of the live studio album titled “Mary” was at the West Hills Mall and it was a success as many fans turned up for the launch. At this session, the BET award winner took pictures with some lucky fans and autographed several branded items for the zealots.
This was not the same story when Sarkodie stepped into the Northern regional capital, Tamale to launch the album for the jollity of his fans in the northern sector. Unfortunately for the rapper, the turn up for the show was very bad.
This is not the first time the rapper has been to Tamale to catch up with his fans, but many say the low turn out was due to the rate that was charged. Enthusiasts in the region could not afford GHC 20.00 for just an autograph and a picture, some have said.
Shows in Tamale mostly range between GHC 10.00 and GHC 15.00 but Sark’s album launch was quite on the high for the indigenous people of Tamale.
We are also told that, Sarkodie and his management did not promote the show well enough—and that Sarkodie is reported to have done only one radio interview to generate attention for the album launch.
Sarkodie is said to have sold less than 100 albums…
