When you talk about rappers in Africa and you leave out the name of Sarkodie, then people can consider telling you, you're not a rap lover.
Today, we decided to visit the 2017 album: Highest by Sarkodie and we have a question; is it worth listening to in 2020? Before the answer, let's go through the  track 14 album.
With the songstress of East Africa; Victoria Kimani on the chorus, All Night came as the first song on the album. They talk about making love all night on this one. Did it come on?
Baby Mama was track 2 with Sarkodie describing the doings of his wife. Singer and Rapper Joey B handled the chorus of Baby Mama with "I bet you know that you're the only one that makes me go ooooh baybay
Nnyeama wei na eyaa)yaa ma mekono did)n) ooooh baybay
And she's the only one I want the only one I need
I bet you know that you're the only one that makes me go ooooh baybay"
Just when we thought the album was going to be a love album, Worlasi came with his catchy vocal on Certified which features producer and Rapper Jay So.
Track 4 was Come To Me which features singer Bobii Lewis. It's another love song to his lover.
One of the instant hit songs off the project was Far Away which took a mid tempo afro beat and featured Nigeria's sensational singer, Korede Bello. Yung L laid his vocals on Glory to make it one of the most inspirational songs in 2017: that was track 6.
Highest, the first song on the album which had only Sarkodie on it. He was aggressive on it tho. The aggression continued into the next track titled Light it up except he employed rapper Big Narstie and Jay So on it. Track 9 saw the birth of the love songs again; calling on Singer Moelogo on Love Yourself, he sings so smoothly. On the afro fused with hip hop beat, Sarkodie collaborated with Jesse Jagz to deliver Overdose.
At this point, Jay So had appeared three times in the album already this time round, he worked with Sarkodie on See Only You.
With a poem, Suli Breaks started the introduction to Silence which is track 12.
We no dey fear; Track 13 saw Jay So again on it making it one of few projects to come out of Ghana with an artist making such number of appearance.
Nigerian singer, Flavour was on the last song which they titled Your Waist.
So, back to the question; is it worth listening to Highest in 2020? Answer: No, Highest was more of a hype album than a conceptual album. We will instead, suggest you listen to Black Love album by same artist, Sarkodie. It's more conceptual and current.
