Beyoncé Knew Me First Before Shatta Wale, She Came To Greet Me At BET Awards - Sarkodie

Sarkodie, the first artist to win the BET award for “Best International Flow,” in the Hip-hop category in an interview on South African podcast with MagC revealed that, he had never told Ghanaians the story of his first encounter with Beyoncé because they wouldn’t believe him.

The finest rapper claimed that, it was Ice Prince who first broke the news when the Nigerian rapper came to ghana to promote his project. He also emphasized how much the American singer’s realization meant a lot to him.

“There was a funny story that happened, till date, I haven’t had the courage to share it but Ice Prince came to Ghana and shared it. When I come to Ghana and share this story, there is no way they gonna believe me.

“I was sitting at the BET on the aisle and we have Beyoncé and her crew coming and she saw me and stood right in front of where I was sitting and she bowed her head. Obviously, I was thinking it wasn’t me and so I was looking behind. Then Ice Prince said that was you and she just shook her head and just walked off. So, when I saw her do this new project with a lot of African artistes, I was like these guys kinda know what is actually happening,” he said.

“I don’t want to conclude that Beyoncé knew me but it is not far from that. The more I get into the industry, they know everything that’s happening. They don’t necessarily speak on it and they don’t let you know they see what’s happening.”
