Not only did he just do a cover to E-40’s 2014 hit single Choices, Sarkodie will draw the American superstar to join him for his upcoming Canada tour in July.
Earlier Monday June 6 2016, Sarkodie via a tweet asked his fans how they would feel should he pull E-40 for the concert in Ghana. The tweet had positive responses with fans asking for it and now E-40 has confirmed his readiness to join the multiple award winning Ghanaian artist on his tour.

Sarkodie holds an impressive record to selling out arenas.
He made history at the Apollo Theater in New York City and sold out London’s 02 Arena in August 2015 and March 2016 respectively.
He also performed to a sold out crowd at the Accra International Conference Center after just 3 days of social media promotion.
Sarkodie is expected to replicate the successes in Canada at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada on Saturday, July 2, 2016 from 6pm to 11pm. He will be joined by Composerz and DJ Mensah.
Since Sarkodie dropped a cover of E-40’s single, the song has gained prominence in Ghana and has over 10 different covers.
