In the newest episode of Herbal Tea & White Sofas, learn how Ghanaian Afrobeats artist and rapper Sarkodie chillaxes sans booze before hitting the stage—with a twist of pineapple, on the rocks.
Ghanaian Afrobeats artist Sarkodie doesn’t really take alcohol backstage, which carves away a typical chunk of the pre-or post-show experience. What does he enjoy imbibing in lieu of beer, wine, or liquor? Juice—and lots of it! (That said, if champagne’s around, he’s not averse to it.)
Mostly, though, Sarkodie likes to be in his own zone before the stage lights flare-up. “After I’m done with a gig, I really like to drive around and play music in the car,” he tells GRAMMY.com in the newest episode of Herbal Tea & White Sofas. “I drive around in the dark, reflect back on what just happened, play some music, and call it a night.”
Learn how Sarkodie chillaxes before hitting the stage and captivating global audiences. (His stock is rising among American audiences; get on board before he’s a megastar stateside!)
