There are parts of Sarkodie’s career that can be studied in areas like Literature and Musicology, he told Jay Foley on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.
Ola Micheal stated that because of rap’s “violent” history, many educationists have been hesitant adding lyrics or pieces from rap songs.
What many of them forget, according to him, is that rap has rhythm and deeper meanings behind the words that can also be studied like other literary works.
“If you take the beats out of Sarkodie or M.anifest’s rap songs and write the lyrics down, you are reading poetry. That can be taken into the literature curriculum and have Sarkodie’s songs studied as literary pieces,” he explained.
