At the 11th edition of his popular Rapperholic concert held on Christmas Day, Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie took a moment to pay tribute to his late lawyer, Cynthia Quarcoo. Overcome with emotion, Sarkodie shed tears as he recounted his relationship with Quarcoo and the invaluable impact she had on his successful music career.
The Rapperholic Rebirth concert, held at Accra’s Grand Arena, saw Sarkodie deliver an energetic set lasting over two hours. Backed by a live band, he performed hit songs like “Original,” “Baby,” “Oluwa is Involved,” and more, engaging enthusiastically with the packed crowd.
Other artists like Efya, Mr Drew, Tulenkey, Quamina MP, Oseikrom Sikani and Papi Kojo also performed at the event. Despite the huge turnout that led to discomfort for some attendees, the overall concert was a success for Sarkodie, who managed to connect deeply with fans through both his high-energy performance and heartfelt tribute.
The emotional tribute to Quarcoo, who passed away earlier this year, was a poignant moment in what was otherwise an electrifying concert experience. Though Sarkodie is known for his upbeat tracks, he showed his more sentimental side during the tribute, underscoring the personal loss of his trusted advisor and confidante.
“I am sad today because I know how this woman has helped my career. When no one believed in me, she did and she approved almost all the songs before it goes out there. She is more than a family, I am really going to miss her.
“This year has not been too good for me but life goes on. Once you are here to have fun, I just have to entertain you because you have also been a great impact in my career,” he said with patrons cheering him up.
