Clad in a blue t-shirt with stripes and a cap, the farmer first serves indication of his readiness to entertain Ghanaians with a performance of Sarkodie’s song.
Like a performer whose ultimate motive is to entertain his audience, the farmer was in character; he looked straight into the camera, rapped with ease amid gestures.
After chancing on the video which was posted on YouTube, Sarkodie confirmed he would like to meet the farmer.
According to him, he cannot even recall the full lyrics of the song, hence he was touched by the farmer’s freestyle session .
I can’t even remember these lines back to back I’m touched … if someone can link me to this man I want to give him a gift … Bless him [SIC], he wrote on Twitter.

Sarkodie’s ‘Politics’ released after the 2008 elections humorously captured activities that characterized the presidential elections which saw John Evans Atta Mills of the National Democratic Congress defeat the New Patriotic Party’s Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The song which was mixed by Posigee gained popularity for various reasons including the display of lyrical dexterity; concept and instrumentation.
