HE is one hell of a rapper who is greatly admired for his act but one thing that Sarkodie seems to fall short of in the eyes of his fans, is not making an honest woman of his long time girlfriend, Tracy Sarkcess. The love birds have been together for more than 10 years.
This seemingly one 'imperfection' worsened when they had their daughter two years ago. This, the fans saw as a very good reason to tie the knot but that did not happen.
So with the news that Sarkodie and Tracy will be making their union official come Tuesday, July 17, there is no doubt their fans will heave real big sighs of relief.
The purported marriage will also halt the “attacks” on Sarkodie on social media by fans who criticise him for not making Tracy his wife after the birth of their daughter, Adalyn Owusu Addo aka Titi, 2.
Tracy has been with Sarkodie at the beginning of his career and the rapper never ceases to praise her for staying loyal to him in “hard times”.
According to Ghanacelebrities.com which reported the news, Sarkodie, who is one of the leading rap artistes in the country wants a low key ceremony.
If news about Sarkodie’s marriage to Tracy is true, he will be following the footsteps of male celebrities such as Phred Nuamah and actor John Dumelo who married earlier this year.
